Class Objectives
/Class Outline
The learning of pharmacology, the science that deals with the action and use of drugs, is an important step to become a dentist. Modern therapeutics requires understanding of the underlying mechanism of pharmacological action.
Pharmacology is uniquely positioned among the biomedical sciences. Namely, studying pharmacology depends on understanding genetics, biochemistry, cell biology, organ physiology, anatomy, and clinical dentistry. Thereby, pharmacology starts at a critical juncture in the dental curriculum, after completion of most of the basic science courses but before clinical training have begun.
