5.0 out of 5 stars.  Great Dental Hygiene book., May 21, 2017
By A Customer
I received this product promptly after ordering, and I couldn't be happier with what I received. I was assigned to purchase this book by one of my professors, and I feel like this book is a great learning tool. Pharmacology can be one of the hardest subjects in our program, but this book breaks it down very well.The book was was in stellar condition for being a used product, and I feel like I will be able to gain valuable knowledge by using this book in conjunction with our daily lecture. The font is clear and large enough to be read without my glasses. Overall, I love this book. Pharmacology rocks!

4.0 out of 5 stars.  It's not a bad textbook. It's pretty good considering that it is ..., March 17, 2017
By Rainsayre
It's not a bad textbook. It's pretty good considering that it is a complex subject and trying to give dental hygiene students enough information to help them pass boards, but not so much that it's overwhelming.

Chapter 2 contains very important information that is needed for the rest of the course, but there is so much information crammed into one chapter. I almost feel like it could have been two chapters. In addition, Chapter 2 is especially disorganized. For instance, Phase I and Phase II are included in the section titled First-Pass Effect, as if Phase I and Phase II are only part of first-pass metabolism. And then the section titled Cytochrome P-450 Induction and Inhibition, goes into a very brief and confusing explanation of induction and inhibition without ever mentioning that this takes place during Phase I. And some better explanations could be used in the section on Ionization.

But in general, I think that the book is well organized. First discussing the background information needed, then going into drugs used in dentistry, moving on to drugs that may alter dental treatment, and finishing up with a few extras like emergencies or breastfeeding.

The online resources for teachers are helpful.
