The aim of the article: to assess the dynamics of the population coverage of preventive inspections dentists. Material and methods: analytical, statistical, and direct observation. Results. Increase in the number of patients receiving artificial limbs, for example, in the North Caucasus Federal District (+21.8% from 2008 to 2009) And Far East (-30.1 % over the same period). Given that in the North Caucasus Federal District smallest number of patients received pros-theses, such a growth indicator may be due to the volume of supply in the region, taking into account the needs of the population. The sharp decline in the availability of prosthetic patients Far East against the background of dissonance between sanitized and in need of rehabilitation patients with sufficient personnel potential evidence of regional problems in dental care. Even more interesting is the distribution of the proportion of patients who received free dentures. In the North Caucasus Federal District, along with an increase in the total number of patients who received artificial limbs, sharply reduced the proportion of patients who received them free of charge (-64.9% from 2008 to 2009). In a number
of countries have not produced any free prosthetics. Conclusion. Reduced the number of patients who received pros-theses, especially for free. The most unfavorable situation is observed in the North Caucasus Federal District (-64.9%), mainly due to the Chechen Republic and the Republic of Dagestan, where the figure is zero. The current situation in the field of dental care, requires a differentiated approach and to adequately address problems from a regional perspective.
