The School-Based Dental Sealant Program (SBDS) provides free sealants to children in Title 1 elementary and middle schools. SBDS programs are leading, evidence-based interventions proven to prevent cavities.
The DOH-Broward program started in early 2016. Our dental hygienists visited 60 Title 1 elementary schools and served more than 10,000 students. During the 2016-17 school year, service continues at all 134 Title 1 elementary and middle schools in Broward County.
