Sign the Pledge and Say No to Vaping
Northlake Oral & Facial Surgery and Project Save A Mouth are joining together for National Children’s Dental Health Month to better inform Slidell and Mandeville teens about the dangers associated with e-cigarettes and vaping.
We were so happy to partner with Project Save a Mouth during National Children’s Dental Health Month to Stop the Vape in our region. With your help, we were able to share about the dangers of e-cigarettes and had many students sign our Stop the Vape pledge.
If you didn’t have the opportunity to take our Stop the Vape pledge, please fill out the form below.

- Overheated batteries in e-cigarettes and vape pens can explode and cause burns to the mouth and skin.
- The CDC reports that each year that smoking-related diseases kill more African-Americans than AIDS, car crashes, murders, drug abuse, and alcohol abuse combined.
