When it comes to using dental sealants on pediatric patients, we were excited to find that 96% of you are actively engaging in this form of preventive care. On the flip side, it was disappointing to find that in the instances when you wouldn’t (or couldn’t) place sealants, the majority of you (66%) said it was because insurance won’t cover the procedure. And, even as we all work toward encouraging dental insurance companies to cover more preventive procedures, as 39% of you indicate, educating patients is still a hurdle as well.
