In the United States, cavities are one of the most common chronic conditions in children. If left untreated, cavities can cause pain and infections that could result in eating, speaking, learning, and playing difficulties. Fortunately, cavities are preventable. One way to help prevent cavities is to apply dental sealants to permanent molars of children.

One method that the North Dakota Department of Health, Oral Health Program uses to ensure that all children receive highly effective dental prevention treatment is  through SEAL!ND, a school-based dental sealant program.
