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.

Each chapter includes case studies, self-study questions, end-of-chapter dental hygiene application summaries, and clinical application exercises.
