In 2010 Oral Health America (OHA) recommitted to America’s Promise Alliance to seal two million teeth for 500,000 at-risk children by 2020. Thanks to the tireless efforts of our 304 Smiles Across America® partners, OHA is set to accomplish this goal by June 2015 – five years ahead of schedule! We are particularly gratified by this progress considering it took 10 years to reach our first goal of sealing one million teeth for 250,000 children.
Sealants placed on children’s teeth in school-based setting is one of only two evidenced-based public health best practices directly focused on oral health. Children receiving preventive care in school-based settings have an improved opportunity for overall health and success in school because our partners mitigate issues of transportation, low literacy, language diversity and fear.
1,833,390 teeth sealed to date!
Please help OHA to ensure that America’s most vulnerable children receive sealants through high quality school-based programs nationwide. Your gift will help us to seal two million teeth for 500,000 children by June 2015 – five years ahead of plan – and set an even more aggressive goal for the future. Let us know that we can count on you to help us achieve this ambitious new goal. Click here to donate now and support our Seal Two Million initiative.
