Smoking cessation

Welcome to this Dentaljuce course on Smoking Cessation, much of which references the "Delivering better oral health" toolkit provided by NHS England.

This course, much of which references the "Delivering better oral health" toolkit provided by NHS England, empowers dental professionals with the knowledge and skills to effectively advise and support patients in quitting tobacco use.

Tobacco use is a major public health concern, contributing to a range of oral health issues including periodontal disease, tooth loss, and oral cancer.

The course focuses on the messages and effective simple advice that dental professionals should give to their patients who smoke or use tobacco products, to support them in quitting. It also provides a background to the public health issues regarding tobacco use.

By equipping dental professionals with evidence-based strategies and communication techniques for smoking cessation, this course plays a vital role in enhancing patient care and addressing a key public health challenge.

If you're not yet a member of Dentaljuce, we highly recommend you to join and gain access to our comprehensive course on Smoking Cessation.

This course, along with over 100 other CPD courses, is available for a single membership payment.
