Children in Hawaii have the highest rate of tooth decay in the nation. The Hawaii Keiki Dental Sealant Program aims to screen all kids and treat those who need it by sealing their molars. The program started in 2020 on Oahu and now it’s expanding to the neighbor islands of Maui and Kauai, to help public school students with their oral health. The screening also identifies kids who may need follow up treatment and encourages them to visit a dentist. This school based health-service program really increases access to health care for those kids who might otherwise not get any.
