                        Free Dental Sealants for Salmon Pioneer Primary Students
                                     Helping to prevent cavities for Idaho children
Beginning 10/11/2017, Salmon Pioneer Primary 1st and 2nd 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 Pioneer
Primary and have a parent or guardian sign a health history and permission form. Permission
forms 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.
