School sealant programs (SSPs) are recognized as an effective model for providing preventive oral health services to children at increased risk of developing dental caries and who are less likely to have access to regular dental care. On December 1, 2020 the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Division of Oral Health (DOH) published Considerations for School Sealant Programs During the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Pandemic. OSAP, with funding support from the CDC DOH, has developed a document to supplement the CDC guidance with additional considerations for practical implementation. This webinar will review the Interim CDC guidance and considerations for planning and implementing a SSP infection prevention and control program during the COVID-19 Pandemic.


1. Describe interim infection prevention and control guidance for school sealant programs
2. Identify strategies and resources for implementation and evaluation
3. Discuss the impact on the roles and responsibilities of the school sealant program coordinator
