This dental sealant course will help hygienists and assistants perfect their skills in applying pit and fissure sealants. Participants will attend the lecture portion of the course then will experience hands on, lab based, practice activities where they can apply the techniques and skills they have just learned. Once placement competency has been reached in the lab, participants will be able to place pit and fissure sealants on live patients. To successfully complete the course, participants are must complete a written examination and demonstrate clinical competency.

This expanded function course satisfies the Oregon Board of Dentistry requirement for certification.

• Learn advanced techniques in pit and fissure sealant construction
• Demonstrate clinical competency in sealant placement and application

Participants are asked to provide a patient for the clinical portion for the course.  This patient must be seven year of age or older.  The patient must have two molars with the entire occlusal surface erupted (these teeth must be virgin molars, meaning no restorations).  The teeth must be treatment planned by a dentist for sealant placement.  An information packet including the prescription form and course handout will be sent to each participant via e-mail as an attachment for you to print out prior to the course.
