Have you visited a school-based dental sealant program in your state or community? There may be a good story there.
Can’t find one to visit? That may be another worthwhile story.
Dental sealants are thin, plastic coatings that are applied to children’s permanent back teeth to seal the narrow grooves on the chewing surfaces and keep out decay-causing bacteria and food particles. Studies show that the procedure can reduce the incidence of tooth decay by 60 percent.
But poor and high-risk kids who could benefit the most from sealants are not always receiving them.
