Does it seem as even though fewer people report smoking cigarettes that the use of other tobacco products is increasing? Today, more high school students vape 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 and nicotine use, and how it is impacting oral and systemic health.

  • Describe the changes in tobacco, nicotine, and cigarette use over the last decade
  • Identify the negative oral and systemic health effects from tobacco and nicotine
  • Evaluate the potential risks of vaping, hookah, and snus
  • Discuss the role of dental professionals in tobacco prevention and cessation
  • Understand the oral and systemic health risks from tobacco use
  • Develop talking points for patients about nicotine and tobacco use
