TOBACCO CESSATION RESOURCES 2021

for PATIENTS AND DENTAL PROFESSIONALS

Tobacco cessation is the single most effective step to lengthen and improve patients’ lives. Quitting smoking has immediate and long-term benefits and is well worth the difficulty, both for patient and professional. The dental team should seek to reinforce and compliment those patients who have recently stopped smoking.


Dental hygienists have many resources available for talking to patients about oral cancer, tobacco cessation and periodontal disease. Dental hygiene professionals are encouraged to spread awareness and share resources with their patients for disease prevention and detection. The Oral Cancer Foundation (OCF) website features information on holding free oral cancer screenings, as well as resources for oral health professionals on topics such as tobacco cessation programs and the destructive and contagious human papilloma virus (HPV). ADHA has partnered with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to share and promote the first federal national tobacco education campaign—Tips From Former Smokers.


Margaret's work in tobacco cessation has been an asset to her community. She was a past Advisory Committee Member for the ADHA Tobacco Intervention Initiative and is currently the liasion  for Washington State Tobacco Cessation.  See also below for some online resources available from her.
