FILER — Students at Filer Middle School can receive free dental sealants and fluoride varnish to help prevent cavities as part of Delta Dental of Idaho’s on-site Grins on the Go program. Dental sealants fill the deep grooves of the back teeth where 90 percent of children’s cavities occur. The fluoride varnish helps protect the smooth surfaces of teeth.
To receive these free cavity-prevention treatments, children must attend Filer Middle School and have a parent or guardian sign a health history and permission form. Permission forms can be obtained from the school.
