Students Complete Dental Sealant Project

Students in Catawba Valley Community College’s Dental Hygiene associate degree program recently participated in a Community Dental Sealant Project with the Foothills Component of the North Carolina Dental Hygiene Association. Children who are at risk for dental decay, do not have dental insurance, and are not on Medicaid were eligible for the sealants. One hundred fifty free sealants were provided for free to 50 children ages 7 to 9 from St. Stephens Elementary and Bethlehem Elementary schools.  The sealants would normally cost a total of $5,250. The students conduct between four and six different dental sealant projects like this each year.
