E-cigarette use has become an epidemic among adolescents and young adults in the United States. New information and research results are emerging on these products every day. There are many short-term health consequences related to vaping, but nothing is yet known about the long-term health effects. Oral health professionals are uniquely qualified to discuss e-cigarette use with their adult and adolescent patients. Accurate information is crucial to providing patients with evidence-based advice.


Learning Objectives

After this session, participants will be able to:

  1. Discuss the known health effects of vaping with adolescent and adult patients
  2. Provide prevention information to adolescent patients
  3. Discuss risks and benefits of vaping with adults who smoke and/or vape
