Since this program is aimed at prevention and no dental x-rays are taken, all students are encouraged to seek a full service dental office or dental health clinic.
If there is no regular family dentist, Dental Sealants & More provides a case manager who will assist families in finding a provider for follow-up care. When the school exam reveals a student in need of urgent care, an Urgent Care Treatment Referral Form is sent home to the parents. A list of students in need of urgent care is also sent to the school principal and school nurse as part of the School Status Report which helps to support funding of school-based dental service programs.
Dental Sealants and More also has special arrangements for follow-up care with the following agencies who have agreed to see the students within thirty days:
