Seal America: The Prevention Invention

Seal America is designed to assist health professionals in initiating and implementing school-based dental sealant programs to prevent tooth decay in children. The online manual provides practical guidance for individuals who wish to start school-based dental sealant programs. It also addresses program sustainability and referring students with unmet oral health needs to dentists.
