Dental Sealants

In keeping with the guidelines established by the Ohio State Dental Board for licensure/certification, all individuals participating in this lab course are required to provide appropriate documentation of immunization of hepatitis B and current certification in CPR in order to participate in this dental continuing education course. 

While Stark State College does not require additional immunizations, it is strongly recommended by the Centers for Disease Control that all healthcare workers be immunized against vaccine-preventable diseases such as hepatitis B, influenza, measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella.  Because healthcare workers are considered to be at significant risk for acquiring or transmitting these diseases in the course of their professions, the Allied Dental Health Department at Stark State College supports this recommendation.*
