California Smokers' Helpline: 1-800-NO-BUTTS

Provider Toolkit: Tobacco Use and Oral Health

The California Smokers’ Helpline and its training and technical assistance arm, the Center for Tobacco Cessation, are pleased to provide this free Provider Toolkit on Tobacco Use and Oral Health: The Critical Role of Dental Professionals, which includes a webinar recording presented by Elizabeth, RDH, MPH, Assistant Adjunct Professor, UCSF School of Dentistry, and Benjamin W. Chaffee, DDS, MPH, PhD, Assistant Professor, UCSF Division of Oral Epidemiology and Dental Public Health.


Smoker-Dentist2.jpgOral diseases affect more people worldwide than any other chronic health condition of humankind. In addition to being a primary cause of major oral ailments, including oral cancer and gum disease, tobacco use disrupts nearly every facet of oral health: from taste perception, salivary flow, to the success of dental treatment.

Dental professionals are well positioned to deliver effective tobacco cessation support to their patients, yet lag behind their medical colleagues in upholding this professional responsibility.
