Edmonds School District offering dental sealants to second and third graders

The Edmonds School District is offering school-based dental sealants for second- and third-grade students at 12 local schools.

By choosing to participate in the program, students are eligible to receive a free dental screening for oral diseases and dental sealants. Dental sealants are clear or opaque plastic materials applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth to prevent cavities and oral decay. Any child needing additional care will receive a referral to a local dentist.

Participating schools include Beverly, Cedar Valley, Cedar Way, Chase Lake, College Place, Lynndale, Lynnwood, Martha Lake, Meadowdale, Mountlake Terrace, Oak Heights and Spruce elementary schools. Additional information about the program can be found here.

The clinics will take place in February and March. Parents will receive consent forms from the schools. 

  1. This program was my first job in Snohomish County. At that time the SHD ran this program and it was for many schools all throughout the county. It also included the No Cavity Club which was an outreach position to find dentists who would take medicaid as reimbursement. IT was very difficult at that time. The program had a Great Dental Hygienist and then an assistant for her and of course the children). The program also included ALL children it was not in any way income based. IS this the case now with this new (old) program? It was also a program we did all year for how many years I do not remember. We did the Tulalip Tribes school also and many more. IT was a great job as the children were a delight. We also went beyond 2nd and 3rd grade. Sealants are a great thing. Protecting those molars helped so much prevent tooth decay in permanent teeth. I was happy and surprised to see this here after all of these years. I started there in I believe 1993 or 1994. I don’t remember now.
