Author information

Division of Behavioral Medicine, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, USA.


Child and adolescent cancer patients who use tobacco present challenging management problems for the pediatric dentist. An approach to counseling patients about their oral health risks secondary to their cancer treatment, which can be adversely impacted by tobacco use, is discussed. Strategies for conducting dental examinations with pediatric cancer patients with attention to potential tobacco-related complications are also provided.
