This page from the Division of Public Health provides access to samples of agency protocols for the placement of dental sealants and the application of fluoride varnish in public health settings. The Governor's KidsFirst initiative includes improving access to preventive oral health measures such as dental sealants and fluoride varnishes. The Division of Public Health recognizes the major role of local health departments in increasing access to oral disease prevention for Wisconsin residents.
The Division recommends that, as local health departments adapt these protocols to their particular settings, they consider having legal counsel review them before they are implemented.
Questions about dental sealant and fluoride varnish agency protocol, or about program assistance, can be directed Wisconsin Oral Health program staff.
