In brief: Depends

Sealants are a terrific service and you are making a great investment in your (or you child's?) dental health.
Like most things you purchase, it depends on where you live. In the san francisco area, the average cost of a sealant is about $70+. Fillings can cost 5x as much so it is better to prevent decay than repair it!

In brief: Sealants

Sealants are wonderful preventative restorations that help prevent occlusal surfaces from developing decay.
The price really depends on your local market. A cost of $40/sealant is reasonable on average.

In brief: Depends

Depends on where you live.
Higher on the coasts and around big cities where cost of running an office is higher. But sealants are oh so much cheaper than fillings, and no needles, no drilling, etc. Go for it!
