Tobacco Cessation Toolkit for California Dental Providers Recently Published
The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) California Technical Assistance Center (COHTAC) recently published the Tobacco Cessation Toolkit for California Dental Providers. The toolkit was created in partnership with the San Joaquin County Public Health Services Smoking & Tobacco Outreach and Prevention Program (STOPP) and Local Oral Health Program and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) Office of Oral Health.
The toolkit aims to provide dental professionals in the state with tools and resources to help guide and improve tobacco cessation-related practices. To complement the toolkit, a free, on-demand, one-hour webinar has been made available. The webinar discusses the oral and overall health implications of tobacco use and strategies for implementing tobacco cessation interventions in dental practice, including the role of the entire dental team. All dental providers are eligible to view the webinar and have the option of receiving 1.0 CDE credit upon completion.
