Sealant Action Team
The Oral Health Florida Sealant Action Team is comprised of members of the statewide oral health coalition that are interested in implementing or improving school-based dental sealant programs across the state, regardless of agency or affiliation. The team was developed by Oral Health Florida in 2011 and is interested in promoting cost-efficient workforce and service delivery models of preventive dental care.
We focus on:
Providing updated resources and information to improve existing school-based sealant programs and implementing additional programs throughout the state and across agencies. This includes technical assistance regarding screening, standards, protocols, data collection tools, portable dental equipment, and sealant application.
Completing data collection yearly to show the increase of services and programs across the state and across agencies.
Providing training on various topics related to school-based oral health care including data collection and screening protocols.
The Sealant Action Team also meets face-to-face at the Annual Oral Health Florida Educational Conference.
