About the event
Does it seem as though even fewer people report cigarette smoking but that the use of other tobacco products is increasing? Today, more high school students use E-cigarettes than smoke regular cigarettes. Many partake in multiple forms of tobacco including hookahs and spit tobacco. Flavored products add to the appeal. This course will examine the changing trends in tobacco use and how they are impacting oral and systemic health.
After this course attendees will be able to:
- Describe the changes in tobacco and cigarette use over the last decade
- Evaluate the potential health risks of E-cigarettes and hookah use
- Understand the oral and systemic health risks from using tobacco
- Examine the role of dental professionals in the prevention and cessation of tobacco use
