Smoking needs to be indicated in Health History module somewhere

As the #1 risk factor for periodontal disease and oral cancer, smoking should have a special place on the health history which can be revisited and updated as our patients return for continuing care. If the patient indicates he/she s a smoker or tobacco user on the initial medical history, some kind of indicator should show up on the health history module which has a way to indicate frequency that can be updated as needed. As time goes by and we learn more about marijuana use and its effects on dental health, we may need to be able to select what they are smoking if not tobacco.
