Dental Professionals: Help Your Patients Quit Smoking

Dentist and Patient

You can play a key role in fighting tobacco use, the number one cause of preventable death and disease in the United States. You see smoking-related damage in your patients’ mouths every day. You know the impact it has on their overall health as well. And your patients trust advice and information you give them to stay healthy.

When it comes to talking to patients about quitting tobacco use, the Tips From Former Smokers® (Tips®) campaign can be a conversation starter. The campaign offers resources for you as well as your patients. With the support of CDC’s materials, you can help more patients live smokefree lives.
