Overview

This course will provide an understanding of how tobacco products impact your patients, and educate you on how to confidently guide your tobacco and nicotine using patients to quit their addiction.


Over the years tobacco and nicotine products have been evolving. It is abundantly clear that their continued use negatively impacts the oral and overall health of your patients. There is a universal agreement that smoking has a devastating effect on one’s body. The harmful effects of e-cigarettes, vaping and other tobacco harm reduction products are actively being researched, but it is safe to say that the use of nicotine delivery products is not going away any time soon. It is incumbent upon dental professionals to stay updated on the effects all these products have on their patients.
