Seals-On-Wheels Oral Health Program arrives at your school with a car full of supplies to bring in (average setup time is approximately 1 hour to prepare for the first student to be seen).
Temporary Dental Office
A temporary dental office is set up in a classroom where students can be seen for dental screenings, cleanings, sealants, and fluoride.
Student Dental Visit
We will coordinate with the school office regarding how to pull students from classes for their appointment, then we get them back to class afterwards to minimize the disruption to their normal school day.
The portable dental unit has all the needed instruments available, including a suction unit, water and air nozzles, and a polisher (a tooth polisher is being used in the picture above).
Applying etch gel to rough up the surface of the tooth to create a better bond for the sealant material.
A curing light with a shield guard is used to apply sealants. See "What Are Sealants?" page for more info.
Similar to a standard dental office, the portable unit comes with an air suction tube and a rinse nozzle.
Fluoride being painted onto teeth. More info on fluoride can be found on the "General Info" page.
Preparing the Patient Chair
Following each student visit we prepare the patient chair for the next student and follow all the sanitary procedures you would expect from any dental office.
Toothbrush and Toothpaste
After each visit we send your child home with a toothbrush and toothpaste. A parent sheet will also be sent home listing services performed that day and if any further work is recommended.
