The Art of Dental Therapeutics
Dental Pharmacology is one of the mainstays of dental therapy. Bacteria, viruses, fungi and immunologic responses make up a wide range of oral diseases that commonly require pharmacological management. This presentation will cover the drugs of choice and their alternatives for these oral problems. It will also touch on the effective over-the-counter (OTC) products for a diverse range of oral complaints and problems seen daily in dental practice. This is one course all dentists and hygienists should take to ensure they are current in this important area of oral healthcare.
