The Dental Sealant Program provides dental health education and free protective sealants to eligible second, third, and fourth graders in selected Cecil County schools. Dental sealants are a thin plastic coating applied to the chewing surfaces of the primary and secondary molars. With parental permission, a local volunteer dentist performs a dental screening and orders dental sealants, which are later applied by a dental hygienist. The services are performed in a temporary dental suite, set up at the pre-selected schools. If you have any questions, please contact Division of Health Promotion, Cecil County Health Department at 410-996-5168.
