The Great American Smokeout takes place every year in November by support of the 100-year old American Cancer Society to encourage smokers quit for at least one day, in hopes they will quit forever. Since 1977 communities have offered cessation classes, 'cold turkey' lunches, and more to support quitters during the Smokeout.

TOBACCO CESSATION RESOURCES 2017-2018
for PATIENTS AND DENTAL PROFESSIONALS


Tobacco cessation is the single most effective step to lengthen and improve patients’ lives. Quitting smoking has immediate and long-term benefits and is well worth the difficulty, both for patient and professional. The dental team should seek to reinforce and compliment those patients who have recently stopped smoking.


April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month and dental hygienists have many resources available for talking to patients about oral cancer, tobacco cessation and periodontal disease. Dental hygiene professionals are encouraged to spread awareness and share resources with their patients for disease prevention and detection. The Oral Cancer Foundation (OCF) website features information on free oral cancer screenings for 2016 across the country, as well as resources for oral health professionals on topics such as tobacco cessation programs and the destructive and contagious human papilloma virus (HPV).    


Margaret's continuing work in tobacco cessation has been an asset to her community for over twenty five years. She was a past Advisory Committee Member for the ADHA Tobacco Intervention Initiative for over 6 years. She is currently the Washington State Tobacco Cessation Consultant. Margaret is also available for tobacco cessation education seminars for oral health. See also below for some online resources available from her.
