Smoking Cessation

The Great American Smokeout is scheduled for November 18. The annual American Cancer Society event is an opportunity to prioritize smoking cessation, and the ADA Clinical Evaluators (ACE) Panel is here to help with its latest report.

With input from 283 ADA members, the report provides insight how dentists approach smoking cessation counseling and treatment, including strategies for talking with patients and dealing with insurance companies. The hope is that the ACE Panel’s experiences will help fellow dentists to better engage with smokers, vapers, and smokeless tobacco users.

Check out the report, published in the Journal of the American Dental Association, to see how your clinical experience with smoking cessation counseling and treatment aligns with those of your colleagues and to learn tactics for approaching these crucial conversations with patients.
