Overview

This comprehensive resource covers the entire spectrum of pharmacology for dental students and practitioners from the basic principles of drugs and their actions on the body to detailed clinical applications of drugs in dental treatment. Special attention is given to drugs that are used in dentistry, such as antibiotics for the treatment and prophylaxis of acute infection or treatment of periodontal disease and anesthetic and analgesic agents for the management of pain. Every chapter ends with vital information on "Dental Implications," even for drugs that are not directly dental-related.

* All chapters include updated, revised lists of pertinent drugs virtually every FDA-approved drug that is currently used.
• Offers crucial information on emergency preparedness and which drugs should be included in a medical-emergency kit.
• Includes a "Drug Interactions in Clinical Dentistry" appendix and a helpful "Glossary of Abbreviations."

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Aladean Attar, DMD (University of Chicago Medical Center)
Description: This book presents its material in three sections: principles of pharmacology; drug classes; and therapeutics.
Purpose: The purpose is to create a thorough textbook of pharmacology that will suit the needs of the dental student, resident, and clinician. The book has value in the academic world due to the changing aspects of pharmacology. The book does meet the editors' objectives.
Audience: It is targeted for the dental student, resident, educator, and practitioner. I think it is particularly useful for the dental student and dental educator. All of the editors hold doctorate degrees.
Features: I think the book is underillustrated. Illustrations and charts can help a student to learn the subject of pharmacology, and more would be appropriate. The references are pertinent.
Assessment: This book could serve as a reference book in the dental practitioner's library. However, I think it would be more appropriate for the book to be used as a guide in a pharmacology course. The book is current and up-to-date with current references. The section on therapeutics is invaluable and a great learning/teaching tool.
