Special Olympics athletes get sealants

Pulpdent contributed sealants to about 35 athletes at a Georgia Special Olympics event, the company announced.

Also participating in the project were the Georgia Public Health Department and Help A Child Smile, 3M ESPE, the Coca Cola Company, Delta Dental, Benco Dental, and Colgate.

Pulpdent donated Embrace WetBond pit and fissure sealant, Etch-Rite etch gel, and Flecta disposable mirrors to provide up to 300 sealants for the athletes, the company said.

Since 1996, the Special Smiles initiative has been providing Special Olympics athletes with free oral health screenings, services, and information at local, regional, state, and national games. Special Olympics/Special Smiles raises awareness of the dental needs of the developmentally disabled population and the difficulties many face in finding care.
