Upon entering the profession, dental hygienists must demonstrate competency in providing safe and effective dental treatment to a wide variety of patients.

They may be called upon to perform a wide range of tasks ranging from the routine, such as obtaining a complete patient medical history, administering certain medications and planning appointments, to the extreme, such as handling a medical emergency in the office.

A solid foundation in the principles of pharmacology is essential to the success of a dental hygiene student.

All dental hygiene program faculty members must have content expertise in the specific subjects they are teaching. Pharmacology is a dynamic field of study in which new information is constantly becoming available.

However, armed with relatively brief exposure to this vast subject during their formal education and faced with ever-changing medication therapy guidelines, many dental hygiene faculty members cannot keep up with the latest trends in disease state management and the impact on dental care.

Now you have an option! With over 30 years’ experience as a clinical pharmacist, dental educator, published author and professional speaker, Tom has earned his reputation as the go-to specialist for delivering quality dental educational content.
