Tobacco Prevention & Cessation
About the webinar
More than five million people die prematurely each year due to tobacco use, which is a significant preventable cause of disease and premature death. Both oral and overall health can be badly harmed by smoking or chewing tobacco. Professionals in oral health are crucial in encouraging tobacco-free living. They should advise their patients to quit smoking, reiterate the anti-tobacco message, and direct them to resources for doing so.
