Course Description: Dental providers are well positioned to help their
patients quit tobacco, and yet may not feel equipped to provide this greatly
needed oral health service. This live, interactive, webinar prepares the
dentist, dental hygienist, and dental assistant with the practical tools needed
to help their patients quit tobacco, skills to understand the scope of the tobacco
problem, techniques to motivate their patients to seek treatment, deliver brief
tobacco dependence interventions, and learn how to integrate tobacco dependence
interventions (TDI) into their dental practice or clinic. The dental clinician will receive training on
general tobacco information, current data, the consequences of tobacco use,
second and third hand smoke, oral manifestations of tobacco use, and FDA
approved cessation medications. (Full description, bio, disclosure).
