Course Description:

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 education to patients and how to refer individuals to evidence-based cessation interventions.
Learning Objectives:
  • Describe the AHCCCS tobacco counseling billing (CDT) codes dental providers can utilize to support patient interventions within a practice setting;
  • Describe e-cigarette/vape use among youth, how e-cigarettes work, and the adverse health effects caused by tobacco and vaping use;
  • Describe tobacco education and evidence-based cessation resources offered through the Arizona Center for Tobacco Cessation and Arizona Smokers&39; Helpline (ASHLine);and
  • Discuss how to utilize the Ask, Advise, Refer Model to screen patients for tobacco/vape use and refer youth patients to the ASHLine and other evidence-based cessation tools and resources.
