School-based Oral Health Programs

The Oral Health Program of the Oregon Health Authority manages two school-based oral health programs that are FREE for eligible schools - the School Fluoride Program (tablets or rinse) and the School Dental Sealant Program.

These programs are most effective when used together. However, implementing even one of these programs can make a significant difference in the oral health of participating children.

Certification for Local School Dental Sealant Programs

Senate Bill 660 (pdf), passed by the Oregon State Legislature in 2015, requires local school dental sealant programs to be certified by the Oregon Health Authority before dental sealants can be provided in a school setting. Certification provides schools with assurance that a minimum set of standards will be met while delivering services.

If you would like to learn more about the certification rules and register for an upcoming training, please visit the Certification for School Dental Sealant Programs web page.
