About Book
Pharmacology for Dental Students is a core book which provides comprehensive information about the actions and uses of medicines in clinical practice. The dentist faces patients of all ages ranging from infancy to old age. In this era of “drug explosion” and “drug information explosion” concise knowledge about the actions, uses, adverse reactions, and drug interactions is essential for the safe and effective use of drugs. The book has 15 chapters, 2 appendices, and an index for rapid consultation and revision by the student. The text covers the syllabi prescribed for graduate and postgraduate dental studies, detailing principles of general and systemic pharmacology. A separate chapter on dental pharmacology includes information on dentifrices, whitening agents, protectives, dressings, obtundents, caries, root canal fillings, and emergencies in dental practice. Pharmacology is an important curriculum content of graduate and postgraduate courses in dentistry. This book provides essential knowledge for ethical and safe use of medicines in man.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
