Dental Professionals

Dental practices may provide a uniquely effective setting for tobacco use recognition, prevention, and cessation. Dental professionals can help tobacco users quit by consistently identifying patients who use tobacco, advising them to quit, and offering them information about cessation treatment.

Tobacco cessation interventions in the dental settings increase the odds of quitting tobacco. This holds for both smokers and smokeless tobacco (ST) users.
