Mighty Tooth is Maryland’s statewide dental sealant program lead by the Office of Oral Health within the Maryland Department of Health. Annually, the Office of Oral Health issues grant funding to Local Health Departments to support school-based and/or school-linked dental sealant programs.
School-based dental sealant programs provide screening, education, and dental sealant application in a school setting. Often times, dental teams set up in gyms, stages, unused rooms, nurses’ offices or school based health centers to provide these services in an efficient manner to a large number of children.
School-linked sealant programs provide screening and education within a school and refer those students that are in need of dental sealants and/or treatment, and do not have a dental home, back to their dental clinic. Those with a dental home are referred back to their private dentist.
