Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Charmaine Johnson-Leong, BDS (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry)
Description: This is the second edition of a book that integrates basic facts in pharmacology with concepts that have emerged during the last six years. It describes the general principles of pharmacological elements, adverse reactions, clinical applications in different specialities, and special considerations. It has useful and informative tables, charts, algorithms and information boxes.
Purpose: According to the author, there is a growing need for precise strategies and guidelines governing the use of antibiotics and antimicrobials. This book meets the author's worthy objectives in providing these guidelines.
Audience: This book is written for the practitioner, according to the author. In my opinion, it is targeted correctly.
Features: The book covers the general principles of microbial therapy, highlighting the clinical applications of these agents in the different specialities. It includes chapters on special considerations for female patients, immunocompromised patients, prophylaxis and patients with systemic diseases. There are also chapters on oral malodor and legal considerations. The best aspect of this book are the comprehensive tables, charts, algorithms, and information boxes. In addition, there are icons throughout the text to alert the reader to important principles.
Assessment: This is an excellent, comprehensive yet concise text that will be very useful to the practitioner as a reference. It includes pertinent concepts that have emerged over the past six years, which justifies replacing the previous edition.
A reference and resource book guiding dentists through the growing array of antibiotics and antimicrobials. This second edition has been updated with newly available information and a more user-friendly design; icons, charts, graphs and algorithms have been added, as has a quick cross-reference guide. A new chapter covers general principles and describes the infections and bacteriologically associated complications that can arise in the oral cavity. Other sections provide information on available drugs, adverse reactions, clinical application and special considerations surrounding specific cases. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
