Whether you use tobacco or not, you are exposed to some form of tobacco on a daily basis.
Why do we care? Well, we wouldn't want our family member's health to decline, teeth to turn brown, or for them to suffer from periodontal disease or any of the other negative effects that using tobacco can bring about - so we don't want you to go through any of those things either. It's your choice - but it's our job to make sure you have the tools, information and facts to make an educated decision!

We begin teaching our patients about Tobacco Cessation and Tobacco Education at an early age. During Dental Visits, we will talk with your children about tobacco and what it could do to their teeth and health.
Did you know...Of the 12 to 14 million American Tobacco users, one third are under age 21 and more than half of those developed the habit before they were age 13.
Part of our job is to educate our patients about how this dangerous habit can effect their oral health, and potentially result in a decline of overall health.
Not only could this education save your health - it could SAVE YOUR LIFE! Tobacco use has been linked to several illnesses and forms of cancer, including Oral Cancer.
