S.M.A.R.T. Moms Smart Mothers are Resisting Tobacco is an evidence-based intervention for healthcare providers who work with pregnant smokers. Originally funded by the March of Dimes, S.M.A.R.T.

Smile S.M.A.R.T. is a companion program of S.M.A.R.T. Moms, which partners with dental providers to effectively educate patients on tobacco cessation and avoidance of second-hand smoke. The goal of the program is to empower dental professionals to use the evidence-based 5As (Ask, Advise, Assess, Assist, Arrange) to encourage their patients to quit smoking or decrease their tobacco use, and to reduce women’s and infants’ exposure to secondhand smoke, ultimately reducing tobacco-related preterm birth, low-birth weight, other adverse birth outcomes, and health issues that may result from young children and women of childbearing age breathing second-hand smoke. Smile SMART is funded by a Community Grant from the March of Dimes. To learn more, visit the program website.
