INTRODUCTION:
The Northwest Pennsylvania Tobacco Control Program (NWPA TCP) has partnered with the Pennsylvania Coalition for Oral Health (PCOH) to develop Integrating Nicotine Dependence Treatment with Oral Health: For Dental Professionals; a 1.25 hour tobacco and nicotine education training. The training translates information presented in Every Smoker, Every Time (required pre-requisite training) into the oral health setting with focus on providing support and additional training in referring dental patients to cessation treatment programming, offering tools to empower oral health professionals to conduct effective cessation counseling, and informing dental clinicians how to bill for these services. Attendees will be presented data supporting the logic behind offering cessation services as a natural extension of oral and overall health for patients who use tobacco and nicotine products, as well as encouragement to consider systems change towards that end.

Dental licensees who complete both trainings can earn 2.0 CEUs.
