Proposal

Evaluating a Dental Tobacco Cessation System (DTCS) for Post-Doctoral Dental Students and Dental Residents

The goal of the project is to develop and evaluate a customized training tool that uses a highly engaging, web-based tool to increase the tobacco cessation practice behaviors of dental graduates at the beginning of their post-doctoral training. The main goal of the DTCS program is to assist the trainee to provide more complete information about tobacco cessation for their clinical practice by providing them with information as well as opportunities to practice new skills.
