A+ Teeth

A+ Teeth, a school-based cavity prevention program offered by Vista Community Clinic. VCC provides visual dental assessment, fluoride varnish application, sealant(s), and referrals for treatment if needed. This dental assessment does not replace a regular dental checkup but can save families time with these services being offered at school.

What are dental sealants?

The chewing surface of the back teeth, known as molars, have pits and grooves where food and germs often get trapped. Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings applied to fill the grooves in the molars. They harden to form a protective shield over the tooth to help teeth stay clean and decay-free.

What does fluoride varnish do?

Fluoride restores the outer layer of teeth and prevents germs from making cavity-causing acids.

How A+ Teeth Works

Dental education and screening services may be covered by your child’s dental insurance. VCC services are available to all children.

Please call (760) 631-5000 ext. 1051 if you have questions on A+ Teeth or if you need more information on how we can help your child enroll in a dental health insurance plan.

Do you have a child entering kindergarten?

A+ Teeth provides dental health assessments and necessary paperwork for kindergarten enrollment.
