Guidelines for Scheduling and Hosting Seal Indiana
•The school nurse or site would need to determine the need in their community
for us to host a visit to provide preventive services. Preferably to host a site
there should be at least 12 children 6 years of age and older. Talk or meet with
the SEAL INDIANA (SI) program manager, who will suggest available dates for a
• Determine best date (or dates) with school principal/teachers or other
• Schedule date/s with SEAL INDIANA program manager.
• If possible, provide information on school enrollment, hours of operation, and
location inside school to set up a temporary dental clinic. Seal Indiana will
ship the requested number of parental consents, with confirmation of the date/s
of visit, and email publicity for area papers and/or school website.
• Distribute SEAL INDIANA parental consents to each child and request a timely
return by parents. Ideally, distribution should occur 4-6 weeks before the
• Collect the consents and organize by classroom for ease in serving children
during the SEAL INDIANA visit. Program manager will call you for numbers
approximately 2 weeks before visit. If by this date the number of children is
less than 12 the visit date will need to be re-scheduled.
• On the day of the visit, give parental consents to SEAL INDIANA site
coordinator, who will organize all paperwork for the dental team.
• If possible, provide a brief orientation to the school for the IUSD dental
students so they will have a better understanding of the children they will be
serving. The students will have already researched demographics about your area.
• If possible—or with assistance of a school volunteer—escort younger children
to and from their classrooms. It’s highly recommended foryoung children to wear
a nametag to assure proper identification by the school volunteer and SEAL
INDIANA staff and students.
• Upon completion of treatment, each child will receive a “dental report paper”
for their parent/guardian.
• Following the SEAL INDIANA visit, you will receive a summary from us, with
information on the number of children examined, sealants placed, fluoride
varnish treatments, children with untreated dental decay, and the value of
services provided under grants. You will also be asked to evaluate the service
provided by SEAL INDIANA and schedule a return visit.
