Summit County Public Health has provided school dental health services to the children of Summit County for over 50 years. Summit County Public Health owns a state-of-the art mobile dental van that travels to 2 school districts in the county. Children who financially qualify receive basic dental services on the dental van, right at their school.
A grant from the Tuscora Park Health and Wellness Foundation made it possible to treat two school districts, Barberton and Springfield, for the past 5 years. Dental care is limited to qualifying children attending these schools, in grades 1-5.

Summit County Public Health’s Dental Sealant Project provides dental sealants in the Akron, Barberton, Cuyahoga Falls and Springfield school districts, as well as Bedford Public Schools. The Project utilizes the Summit County Health District’s staff and portable dental equipment provided by the Ohio Department of Health. A recent expansion project has allowed the Cuyahoga County Board of Health to assemble a dental sealant team and start programming to apply sealants as of January 2011.
The target population includes elementary and middle school students in 31 Akron Public schools, 5 Bedford City schools, 3 Barberton City schools, 3 Cuyahoga Falls schools, 3 Coventry schools and Springfield Local schools. The Cuyahoga County Expansion Program includes 6 East Cleveland, 6 Euclid, 8 Lakewood, 2 Maple Heights, 9 Parma and 4 SEL schools. We have also added the following for the new grant cycle: 2 Brooklyn, 4 North Olmsted, 2 Richmond Heights, and 2 Warrensville Heights schools. All schools involved have a free/reduced lunch rate of greater than 40%. Few children in these schools have access to basic dental care. The goal of the program is to reduce pit and fissure cavities through the application of dental sealants, to provide basic dental education and to identify and refer critical dental problems, thus reducing untreated dental disease among Summit County's most needy students.
