For the LSU School of Dentistry, Dr. Jeevan Yenuganti, and an oral medicine doctor, and I developed a tobacco cessation program to be incorporated into the four year curriculum for our students. It is based on the most recent knowledge and components of effective tobacco cessation programs. Our goal is to provide an avenue for help for smokers who have the desire to quit and to educate our dental students in the implementation of a tobacco cessation program for the dental office or healthcare facility.
