    Pharmacology has undergone major intellectual changes in the recent years and has become

    increasingly important to all medical, dental and other health professionals. The graduate

    students of dentistry may have to handle medical emergency during various dental

    procedures on the dental chair. Besides this, dentists have to look into various drug

    associated interactions. The broad goal of teaching pharmacology to undergraduate

    students is to inculcate rational and scientific basis of therapeutics keeping in view the

    dental curriculum and profession. A sincere attempt has been made to present a complete

    text for undergraduate students of dentistry as per the new syllabus requirement (Dental

    Council of India, BDS course regulation, 2006).

    The book is divided into thirteen sections, initial sections cover the general and

    autonomic pharmacology, followed by other sections of drug acting on different body

    systems. A detailed section is devoted only to dental pharmacology which covers all agents

    used in pharmacotherapy of dental conditions. The last section covers vaccine, sera and

    other immunological agents and drugs used in skin disorders. The chapters have been

    arranged in such a way that knowledge gained from initial chapters will be helpful to

    students for understanding subsequent chapters. The appendix contains the list of newly

    approved and banned drugs in India.

    The classification adopted in the books provides pharmacological distinction among

    latest drugs with doses and routes of administration along with leading trade name(s)

    available in Indian market, but it should not be construed as the recommendation of those

    particular brands. (viii)
