COMMUNITY ANNOUNCEMENT
Free Dental Sealants for Salmon Junior High Students
Helping to prevent cavities for Idaho children
 
Beginning 10/9/2017, Salmon Junior High 7th and 8th graders can receive free dental sealants
and fluoride varnish to help prevent cavities, as part of Delta Dental of Idaho’s Grins on the
Go program. Dental sealants fill the deep grooves of a child’s back teeth, where 90% of
children’s cavities occur. The fluoride varnish helps protect the smooth surfaces of children’s teeth.
 
Grins on the Go clinics take place on-site at schools as part of
Delta Dental of Idaho’s Community Outreach efforts.
 
To receive these FREE cavity-prevention treatments, children must attend
Salmon Junior High and have a parent or guardian sign a health history and
permission form. Permissionforms can be obtained from the school.
 
The Grins on the Go clinic does not bill Medicaid or private insurance.
There is no cost associated with this program.
For more information, please call Delta Dental
Community Outreach at (208) 489-3541.
