Basic Principles of Pharmacology with Dental Hygiene Applications presents up-to-date pharmacological principles and identifies applications of these principles in day-to-day dental hygiene practice. The text coordinates principles of pharmacology with pathophysiology and identifies applications to the oral health treatment plan and treatment record information. Coverage includes subjects not found in other pharmacology textbooks for dental hygiene students: adverse drug effects, drugs used by the dental hygienist, sources to help patients or personnel seek treatment for substance abuse problems, and herbal supplements. Each chapter includes case studies, self-study questions, end-of-chapter dental hygiene application summaries, and clinical application exercises.
