This study examined whether a specialized training program could increase the number of dental hygienists in New York State who routinely addressed tobacco use with their patients. A training program was developed based on the 2000 Clinical Practice Guideline. The formal training program was associated with a significant increase in the percentage of hygienists routinely addressing tobacco use and dependence with their patients. An increased number of calls to the quitline were generated.
