Easy to read and easy to follow, Applied Pharmacology for the Dental Hygienist, 6th Edition provides an understanding of the basic principles of pharmacology. It covers the most common drugs that you will encounter in clinical practice -the drugs a patient may already be taking and the drugs prescribed by the dentist. A logical and consistent organization makes it easy to look up drug group indications, pharmacokinetics, pharmacologic effects, adverse reactions, drug interactions, and dosages. Ensure patient safety with this essential reference!

  • Drug interactions are emphasized, with explanations of why specific drugs may or may not be appropriate for use in a dental treatment plan.
  • Note boxes highlight important concepts, indications, contraindications, memory tools, warnings, and more.
  • Chapter review questions help you assess your understanding.
  • Informative appendixes make it easy to look up need-to-know information.
  • A new Hygiene-Related Oral Disorders chapter summarizes prevention and treatment of dental caries, gingivitis, and tooth hypersensitivity.
  • A new Natural/Herbal Products and Dietary Supplements chapter relates this fast-growing area to dental hygiene.
  • New Dental Hygiene Considerations boxes show how principles of pharmacology apply specifically to dental hygienists.
  • Additional illustrations and tables simplify difficult concepts, including topics such as receptors and metabolism.
  • A new full-color insert illustrates examples of many common oral pathological conditions.

Editorial Reviews


"This is an incredible resource for any dental practitioner - DCP and dentist alike..The book is over 500 pages in all, but it is very easy to use as a reference resource due to the fact that each chapter begins with an outline of its contents and therefore a quick scan of the first page of each chapter will direct the reader to specific information if that is what is required. On the other hand, a more leisurely read gives valuable background information to the aspects of pharmacology which we take for granted on a daily basis.Important points within the text are summarised through the use of tables and boxes which make it easier to understand.The book has a very informative appendix section including a list of the top 200 most prescribed drugs, and what they are used for.

This book is a must on every dental practitioner's shelf - it should not be restricted to the dental hygienist!"

3.0 out of 5 stars Full of information but hard to understand June 21, 2010
This textbook is jam packed full of information. However, it is a difficult book to read and understand from. My Pharmacology professor is a Dentist AND a Pharmacist and he said some of the questions asked in the chapters of this book were even beyond his scope of knowledge and far beyond the needs of a hygienist.

5.0 out of 5 stars comprehensible February 16, 2013
By Alei
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm not very far into reading it, but so far the reading is very comprehensible. It seems to be organized well. I wish there were more illustrations, such as showing pathways through the body, etc. Otherwise, I like the book and I'm using it constantly for the class. It is not a book you just buy and then put on your shelf.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fairly good textbook :) August 26, 2012

Good textbook, nicely presented, everything is listed and grouped in a well organised manner. The book could do with a bit more colour. Does not contain mathematical equations needed for pharmacy.
