DEBS 601. Dental Pharmacology and Pain Control I. 4 Hours.

Yearlong course; 4 lecture hours. 4 credits. This course covers the study of the effects of chemical agents on the structure and function of living tissues, which may be normal or pathological. Provides a basic understanding of pharmacological principles and the basic concepts of currently accepted theories of pain mechanisms and provides a scientific basis for the use of therapeutic agents in order that the future dentist will be able to safely administer drugs to control pain by parenteral, oral or inhalation routes. Students receive CO grading in the fall and letter grade and earned credit in the spring.
