Thomas A. Viola, R.Ph., C .C .P.
Dental professionals are tasked with the safe and effective management of medically complex patients. Knowledge of dental pharmacology has never been more essential to patient care.

reputation as the go-to specialist for making pharmacology practical and useful for all members
of the dental team.

physiology so that clinicians may be knowledgeable about not only the dental considerations of medications used to treat systemic
illness but also the systemic considerations of medications used to provide dental treatment. As an educator, Tom is a member of
the faculty of over 10 dental professional degree programs and has received several awards for outstanding teacher of the year.
As an author, Tom is well known for his contributions to several professional journals, has served as a contributor, chapter author
and peer reviewer for several pharmacology textbooks and currently serves as a consultant to the American Dental Association’s
Council on Scientific Affairs.

dental professionals internationally since 2001. Meeting planners and attendees agree that Tom is their choice to educate within
this dental specialty.
