The Dental Prescriber App for iPhone is designed to enable and educate dentists to quickly look up the scripts required to manage a patient's oral disease or symptoms.

This is an Australian based app, therefore most dosages, medications and packaging are for the Australian market. This is because Dr Ha is based here. There are notes within the app stating this and welcoming suggestions from users in other countries. Please don't discredit a very useful app because it doesn't revolve around the US.
Waste of money!!
I bought this bc i just started handwriting Rx's when i learned on a computer system...it doesnt have anything about vicodin...it is written in a very confusing way...and uses drugs that most of my attendings have never written in dentistry...save your money!

Many common drugs (U.S.) omitted. Not very comprehensive. Needs mg/kg dosing for peds.
