Introduction: The moment of dental treatment can be an opportunity for generalized or specific health interventions, even if the individuals are seeking for aesthetic enhancement and/or pain relief, as well as, being a motivator for cessation of smoking. Knowledge of the concepts by the dentist to the intensive approach of the smoker increases the chances of prolonged smoking abstinence and prevention of relapse.

Results: After training the students felt confortable and capable to start the intensive hands-on practice, applying the knowledge acquired.

The project allowed undergraduate students for the management of smoking patients, expanding their activities in the area of health promotion.
