Join our live stream education event to learn all about vaping and the health hazards that still linger on.
Have you ever had a patient enthusiastically announce, “You’re going to be so happy . . . I quit smoking!”. And just about the time you break into you happy dance, they finish by saying, “I switched over to e-cigarettes because they’re not bad for you.”. Based on the decades of research available to us, dental professionals feel comfortable educating patients on the negative effects of smoking and using chewing tobacco.
Identify the different types of e-cigarettes and vape pens available and how these devices are used by their patients.
Recognize the chemicals that are produced during the process of vaping, and the cancer risks of these chemicals.
Understanding the current and future laws and regulations on e-cigarettes and discover the best places to find the latest clinical research to share with patients.
Design a patient education plan for the dental practice that includes e-cigarettes, vaping (both e-liquid and cannabis oil), JUULing, and hookahs.
