Welcome to the Pharmacology Declassified Blog! Thank you for visiting my new website.
As I often say, knowledge of pharmacology has never been more essential to patient care.
As a dentist, dental hygienist or dental assistant, you are the steward of your patient’s health and well-being, both during, and after, their time with you.
You know that, in the course of everyday practice, you must often draw upon your knowledge of pharmacology to provide care for today’s increasingly medically complex dental patients.
However, I am sure pharmacology represented only a small portion of your formal education and specialized training.
Armed with such brief exposure to such vast subject matter, it can be very difficult to navigate the deep waters of the myriad prescription medications, over-the-counter remedies, dietary supplements and illicit substances your patient may be taking and still ensure the best standard of patient care possible.
My mission in writing this blog is the same as my mission in presenting all of my seminars, and in writing all of my journal articles…to declassify dental pharmacology…to distill this often complex information into simple, understandable concepts and present them it in a format which makes them applicable, practical and useful for you, my colleagues.
Faced with ever-changing guidelines and protocols, it may be quite daunting for you to keep up with the latest information on pharmacology, disease state management and the impact on dental care.
In this blog, I will be posting the latest pharmacology news and information as it becomes available, as well as analysis of how it impacts your daily clinical practice.
I would also like this blog to serve as a forum for your questions.
Please don’t hesitate to send me your questions, as well as your ideas and requests for future blog topics, journal articles and seminars.
Thank you again for visiting my new website and blog. I hope you stop by often!
