Sealants for Smiles, a non-profit organization based in Salt Lake City, said it received a $100,000 donation from Intermountain Healthcare to help it increase access to oral health education and preventive dental services for at-risk children.

The organization said the contribution will allow it to expand its program of offering school-based dental sealants to second and sixth-grade children and providing oral health education and evaluation by a licensed Utah dentist, fluoride varnish and dental sealants to all grades.

"We are projecting to visit 30 new schools in 2013," said Roger Adams, president and CEO of Sealants for Smile.

He explained the donation will also allow Sealants for Smiles to expand services to elementary schools with greater than 50 percent enrollment in free or reduced school lunch programs. This expansion will include eligible elementary schools along the Wasatch Front and throughout Utah.
