Dental professionals were waiting for a REFRESHER course.

Pharmacology was voted the #1

Before we launched the course, we asked many dental professionals if they wanted a "refresher" style course. And the #1 course they voted for was pharmacology.

This means that you are not alone if you are struggling with this subject.

Dentistry is deeply connected with pharmacology

  • Drugs can affect the way we treat patients
  • Drugs can have side effects related to the oral health of the patient (e.g., xerostomia with certain anti-hypertensive drugs)
  • Dental professionals should help the patient with home care (e.g., use Biotene for xerostomia due to drugs) 
  • Dental professionals prescribe drugs
  • Local anesthetics are drugs we should know more about

We have an effective condensed format, so you can maximize your time

Your time is precious. That's why we did all the work for you, so you can learn ONLY what is important. 

We always use the "key points" format, so we go straight to the core. 

You will feel so knowledgeable after the course

It doesn't matter whether you remember what was in your pharmacology book or not. What matters is that you are TRYING, right now.

After you review all the topics and take the quiz, you will feel:

  • Smart(er)
  • Ready to educate your patients
  • Refreshed (because you brushed up on concepts that you vaguely remembered)
