Tobacco Cessation

TOBACCO CESSATION LINKS

ADHA is proud to partner with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to share and promote the first federal national tobacco education campaign — Tips From Former Smokers® (Tips®). The Tips campaign profiles real people — not actors — who are living with serious long-term health effects due to smoking cigarettes and secondhand smoke exposure. As prevention specialists, dental hygienists are in the perfect role to work with their patients who are ready to quit tobacco use. Check out our new tobacco cessation website to find resources for you as practitioners, educators and for your dental offices.

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.
