Vaping: A Public Health Crisis?

The evolution of clinical practice has elevated us into practicing in one of the most challenging and gratifying periods of time to date.

Lecture Synopsis:

There is hardly a day that goes by without ‘vaping’ making headline news. We are just beginning to learn about the potential long-term risks of vaping. Originally introduced with the hope of aiding smoking cessation without the damaging effects of tobacco, vaping has grown in popularity while at the same time seeing a rise in smoking rates due to nicotine addiction. The CDC states that vaping is not safe for youth, young adults, pregnant women, or adults who do not currently use tobacco products. As a dental professional we are on the frontlines of assessing how this growing trend will impact oral health and overall health. What is our messaging to our dental patients and how may we best educate them on the potential risks of this growing trend?

Learning Outcomes:

  • To identify vaping incidence and prevalence amoung our population
  • To discuss the science behind vaping which has led to its growing popularity and addictive properties
  • To recognize the impact of vaping on oral and systemic health
  • To educate today’s dental patient on vaping risks as well as alternatives to aid in smoking cessation
