A tobacco cessation clinic has been set up in the Department of Public Health Dentistry, PCDS & RC. A logo representing our unit is designed on the caps and batches worn by our unit. Also the tobacco helpline is functional and aids in telephonic counseling for tobacco cessation. A tobacco cessation camp was held for female prisoners at Central jail with the help of street play and toothbrushes and toothpastes were distributed. Tobacco cessation awareness was given to the attenders of PCDS and RC. They were made aware of the various cessation methods and samples were distributed. Since security guards have a different work pattern which makes them more prone to addiction to tobacco and its products, we conducted oral hygiene awareness and tobacco cessation activities for security GUARDS in PCDS Bhopal. Samples were also distributed to them.

Co-ordinators: Dr Ajay Bhambal, Dr Garima Bhambhani.
