AAPD Endorses Smokefree Movies Initiative
Last year the AAPD board of trustees voted to become an endorsing organization of the Smokefree Movies Initiative. This means that the AAPD supports the following specific goals:
Rating new smoking movies "R" unless the dangers and harm of tobacco use are presented or it represents use by an actual person such as in a biography.
Certifying no payoffs for depiction of tobacco use in a movie.
Requiring strong anti-smoking ads before any media production with a tobacco presence.
Stopping identification of tobacco brands in any media production.
Ending public subsidies for media productions with tobacco imagery.
The AAPD’s Policy on Tobacco Use is available at: policies--recommendations/tobacco-use/
Other endorsing organizations include the ADA and the American Academy of Pediatrics. For more information on this initiative, visit:

Dr. Anne O’Connell is a long-time member of AAPD, a member of the editorial board, international consultant of the Council on Scientific Affairs and a board certified pedi- atric dentist. She is also an author of the chapter on dental traumatology in the Handbook of Pediatric Dentistry.
The International Association of Dental Traumatology (IADT) is an international professional organization with global representation. The mission of IADT is  to promote optimal prevention, diagnosis, treatment and follow up servic- es to all individuals following a traumatic dental injury. Dental injuries in a growing child can particularly complex and management is often long term and multidisciplinary. IADT seeks to engage the lay public, sporting organizations, dental and medical colleagues to educate and prevent injuries where possible. It also seeks to update and educate professionals on recent developments within Dental Traumatology (www.iadt-dentaltrauma. org). Join us in Lisbon for World Congress in Dental Traumatology 2020.
