2. Suggested Dental Pharmacology Subject 1WhyDrug by definition is any substance that, when applied on a living organism, alters its normal function.This definition is valid for a lot of substances used in oral and dental medicine; most of substances are wrongly classifiedunder Dental Materials.The reason is that in most cases dentists believes that they are not medicines, and that some subject should be treatedby medical staff rather than dental staff (Dental Pharmacology is one of them).This leads to a gap between theses specialties and dental sciences, and most of dentist treated the Medical Subjects as -necessary to pass- subjects that can be dropped as soon as finished or passed.Two destructive Consequences 1. First: this field has disappeared from all postgraduate activities (Research, postgraduate study. Etc) 2. Second: When needed some subjects are wrongly classified because Medical staff will not treat it, so they are partially treated in the curriculum, or not treated at all (Lik hundreds of Dental drugs classified under Dental , (Like Materials Subject).Our College has the opportunity to be a leader in dental Education, to adapt its curriculum to the new holistic vision of curriculumdental medicine and to treat oral cavity as a part of the body, by beneficiating of the existence of dental Pharmacologyspecialist.
3. Suggested Dental Pharmacology Subject 2Subjects related to restorative and endodontic dental pharmacologyDental Tropical drugs used in restorative and endodontic treatment can be classifief in groups : 1) Endodontic retorative materials contains aiding drugs (Example : Active Points Chlorhexidine ® from Roeko) that contains Chlohexidine in order to desinfect route cana And (Caustinerf Arsenical ® frem Septodont) that canal.
