In response to COVID-19, health center dental programs must make adaptations to reduce aerosols generated during dental procedures. Dental sealants, one of the most effective methods for caries prevention, has historically been an aerosol-generating procedure (AGP). Prevention of dental decay is still important during the COVID-19 pandemic. This webinar will discuss the rationale for continuing to place sealants in health centers and the evidence base for dental sealants. GC America will discuss how to place glass ionomer sealants while producing minimal aerosols so that children can continue to receive the benefit of dental sealants in the COVID-19 world.

SPEAKERS: Irene Hilton, DDS, MPH (NNOHA), Michelle Wright, RDH (GC America, Inc.), and Bill Maas, DDS, MS, MPH (NNOHA Sealant Improvement Collaborative faculty)

OBJECTIVES: Understand the rationale for sealants in the COVID world. Review the evidence base for applying dental sealants. Present a technique for applying glass ionomer sealants without aerosol generation. 1CDE will be offered for this webinar.
