The modules provide detailed guidelines for infection control in school-based programs; discuss tooth selection and assessment for dental sealants; review the sealant-application process; and provide information about program operations, with an emphasis on the specific requirements that apply to programs funded by the Maryland Department of Health, Office of Oral Health (OOH).

Self-Assessment Quizzes: After completing the modules, you can take the self-assessment quizzes (for credit or for self-assessment). Oral health professionals who successfully complete all module self-assessment quizzes are eligible to receive two continuing education (CE) credits through the Maryland Department of Health, OOH, with approval from the Maryland State Board of Dental Examiners. See details for printing the certificate and applying for CE. There is no charge for CE credits.

Course Development: This curriculum is adapted from School-Based Dental Sealant Programs, produced by the National Maternal and Child Oral Health Resource Center and the Ohio Department of Health, Oral Health Section. The National Maternal and Child Oral Health Resource Center and the Maryland Department of Health, OOH, adapted the curriculum.
