Tom Viola Speaks on Dental Pharmacology

Are you confident in your knowledge of medications and dietary supplements, as well as interactions, adverse reactions, and effects on patient management and treatment planning?


The challenge faced by all dental professionals today is to provide safe and effective treatment to our medically complex patients.

As dental professionals, we must be equally aware of the medical considerations of agents commonly used in the practice of dentistry as well as the dental considerations of the medications frequently prescribed for the treatment of multiple systemic diseases.

In his dynamic, information-packed programs, Tom Viola, R.Ph., C.C.P. draws from his 30+ years’ experience as a pharmacist, educator, speaker and author to offer a complete overview of the principles of dental pharmacology.

Make Pharmacology what it was always meant to be: your most valuable instrument in treating today’s medically complex patient.
