Tobacco treatment training program set for May 17-19
West Virginia University School of Dentistry looks forward to hosting our Certified Tobacco Treatment Training Program each spring. Registration is open and limited scholarships are available.
WVU School of Dentistry is hosting a Certified Tobacco Treatment Training Program in May. It is NOT just for dental professionals. This course is recommended for physicians, physician assistants, dentists, dental hygienists, nurse practitioners, nurses, pharmacists, social workers, respiratory therapists, addiction treatment professionals, licensed professional counselors and others who encounter tobacco using patients/clients/students. A National Certificate in Tobacco Treatment Practice is a collaborative effort among the Association for Tobacco Use and Dependence (ATTUD), the Council for Tobacco Treatment Training Programs (CTTTP), and the Association for Addiction Professionals (NAADAC). One requirement for achieving national certification includes the successful completion of an accredited training program such as the WVUSODTTTP.
