In 2010 Oral Health America (OHA) recommitted to America’s Promise Alliance to seal two million teeth for at-risk children by 2020. Thanks to the tireless efforts of our 304 Smiles Across America® partners, OHA is accomplished this goal in July 2015 – five years ahead of schedule! Our first goal–to seal one million teeth for 250,000 children–took 10 years to complete.
Sealants placed on children’s teeth in a 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.
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 continue to provide this important preventative dental care to hundreds of thousands of children across the country each year. Let us know that we can count on you to help us reach even more children now that our Seal Two Million goal has been met.
