Or. Admin. R. 333-028-0300 - Local School Dental Sealant Programs: Purpose

Current through Register Vol. 61, No. 4, April 1, 2022

(1) The Oral Health Program supports communities in improving the oral health of the school-age population through evidence-based best practices within a public health framework. The Association of State and Territorial Dental Directors (ASTDD), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Community Preventive Services Task Force have all determined that school dental sealant programs (SDSPs) are an evidence-based best practice with strong evidence of effectiveness in preventing cavities among children and adolescents.
(2) These rules (OAR 333-028-0300 through 333-028-0395) establish the procedure and criteria the Oregon Health Authority shall use to certify, train, recertify, and monitor and collect data from Local School Dental Sealant Programs. Annual certification of a Local School Dental Sealant Program by the State Oral Health Program is mandatory before dental sealants can be provided in a school setting.
