Welcome to Drugs4dent®
Drugs4dent® is the first Australian medicines information resource designed specifically for dental practitioners. It provides succinct, dental-relevant information for practitioners in clinical settings to understand the effect of medications on dental treatment and support clinicians to accurately and safely prescribe.
With drug information constantly evolving, Drugs4dent® provides up-to-date dental-relevant information on prescription drugs, over-the-counter products and complementary medicines, so dental practitioners will be alerted to the impacts drugs can have on dental procedures. Drugs4dent® provides clinical decision support to improve medication safety by including drug and allergy interactions, pregnancy and lactation recommendations, and paediatric dosing guidance for dental indications.
Drugs4dent® is designed to be used chair-side. Drug information is presented in an easy-to-understand and accessible format, saving you time and improving efficiency. A summary of your patient’s medications, your prescription and any safety checks (e.g. drug interactions) are all recorded in a format that can be easily stored in your patient records.
