ASHLine/AHCCCS Dental Providers' Webinar: Youth E-Cigarette/Vaping Cessation

Panel Discussion ~ Free 1 CEUs


This webinar will provide an overview of youth e-cigarette /vaping and how dental providers can play a role in combating the vaping epidemic. While national and state-level commercial tobacco use among youth and young adults are at all-time low prevalence rates, the use of e-cigarettes or vaping products among this age group continues to rise. Dental professionals are uniquely positioned to screen patients for vaping (Ask) and provide advice at every patient encounter (Advise) to connect patients to evidence-based cessation resources (Refer), including the state quitline.


This webinar will present recent updates to AHCCCS CDT codes and the ability to be reimbursed for providing tobacco/vaping and other substance use education to patients and how to refer individuals to evidence-based cessation interventions.
