3 Stars from Doody

This book presents its material in three sections: principles of pharmacology; drug classes; and therapeutics. 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. 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. 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. 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.
