New Report on Dental Sealant Programs

The national Sealant Work Group (SWG) issued a report to strengthen the ability of school-based sealant programs (SSPs) to reach more children, especially those most at risk for cavities. Convened by the Children’s Dental Health Project, the SWG has produced a report with 16 recommendations to states and public health leaders for improving the operations and sustainability of SSPs. Find the report at www.cdhp.org/sealants

CDHP is co-hosting a 1-hour Twitter storm about sealants on Thursday, April 13 (2 pm ET / 11 am PT). To make it easier, they've created a kit of sample Twitter messages to use or adapt as you wish, at: http://bit.ly/2o0ElJ3.
