Webinar: Help Your Patients Quit!


Smoking remains a leading cause of death and illness in the United States. In more recent years, e-cigarettes have become the most commonly used tobacco product among youth. Dental hygiene professionals can play a critical role in helping their patients quit as they are often the first to detect tobacco-related oral disease. In this webinar, featuring Dr. Brenna VanFrank, MD, MSPH, Senior Medical Officer in the Office on Smoking and Health (OSH) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), attendees will leave:

• understanding the latest trends in e-cigarettes among youth and teens,

• knowing how to perform a tobacco cessation clinical intervention, including what questions to ask patients to help start the difficult conversation about quitting, and

• receiving tobacco cessation resource information from ADHA and the CDC’s Tips from Former Smokers(r) Campaign.
