During Children's Dental Health Month, Florida Health Highlights Success of School-Based Sealant Program

Full Story
Tallahassee, Fla.— February is Children’s Dental Health month and the Florida Department of Health is working to promote good oral health for children and families through preventive dental care. Over the past three years, the number of county health departments providing School-Based Sealant Programs has increased from 27 to 51. Governor Rick Scott’s Fighting for Florida’s Future Budget recommends $1.2 million in funding to expand the School-Based Sealant Program to the remaining counties statewide. This program helps ensure low-income children have access to quality dental care.
