Dr. Joan Davis presents internationally streamed webinar

December 5, 2018
Posted In: Missouri Campus, MOSDOH

On Thursday, Nov. 8, A.T. Still University-Missouri School of Dentistry & Oral Health’s Joan M. Davis, PhD, RDH, presented “Tobacco Cessation on the Clinic Floor,” an internationally streamed webinar on tobacco treatment in the clinical setting. With 20 years of research and work in tobacco cessation and education, Dr. Davis presented practical strategies for clinical faculty to incorporate smoking cessation into students’ treatment planning and comprehensive care.

Dr. Davis was invited by the American Dental Education Association (ADEA) to create and present the one-hour program as a part of the ADEA eLearn webinar series. The presentation is available on ADEA’s website. In addition to the presentation, Dr. Davis provides an open-access Tobacco Free! Curriculum© located at tobaccofree.atsu.edu.

“It was an honor to be chosen by ADEA to present on this extremely important topic,” says Dr. Davis. “Though clinicians know that smoking harms the body, the patient’s chief complaint often becomes the focus of care when it is often the toxins in tobacco smoke that caused or aggravated the presenting condition. I strongly advocate for tobacco treatment to be a part of any treatment plan for tobacco users.”
