Pharmacology in Dentistry

Essential pharmacology training

Understanding how drugs work is an important, yet often overlooked, aspect of dentistry. After all, whether you’re using anesthetic to extract a wisdom tooth or you’re prescribing antibiotics for an infection, you need to know exactly how your patient’s body is going to react.

The Department of Pharmacology and the Faculty of Dentistry work together to provide pharmacology training to students in the first and second years of its Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) program and in the second year of the diploma in dental hygiene.
