Seals on Wheels Dental Program

The “Seals on Wheels Mobile Dental Program” is a school based sealant program, sponsored by the Florida Department of Health in Miami-Dade County and the Health Foundation of South Florida.  This mobile dental health program provides preventive dental care services to 2nd and 7th grade public school children of Miami-Dade County.  The schools chosen are located in Homestead and Florida City. These schools have been selected because they are located in a non-fluoridated area of Dade County and provide a high percentage of free and reduced meals.

During summer time or when school is out of session, the mobile dental program participates in health fairs and outreach programs.  In addition to these activities, the dental van provides preventive dental care to childcare centers in Miami-Dade County in an effort to help reduce oral health disparities. Oral screenings, fluoride varnishes and oral hygiene instructions are provided to children 0-5 years of age at no charge.

The services provided include oral screenings, oral hygiene instructions, teeth cleanings, prophy, fluoride varnish treatments, x-rays and sealants. Services are free of charge to the children located at the following schools:
