Concord Dental Sealant Coalition receives educational grant

The Concord Dental Sealant Coalition received a $5,000 grant from Northeast Delta Dental Foundation to support oral health education and preventive dental treatment for children in first through third grade in 10 Concord area elementary schools.

The funding will help improve children’s health by providing oral health education, dental assessments by local volunteer dentists, in-school preventive dental services including dental sealants for children unable to see a dentist routinely, follow-up care coordination for children with urgent and nonurgent dental needs, and assistance to parents in establishing a dental home.
