The analysis of literature data on the possibilities and prospects for the use of information technologies (IT) to improve the efficiency and quality of dental medical care (QDMC) to the population has been performed. The need for the introduction of IT systems as part of pilot projects in dental facilities was noted. According to a number of researchers, the prospects for introducing medical information systems (IS) are associated with increasing the supporting business processes. The results of a number of studies are presented in which it is demonstrated that the use of the software systems proposed by different authors allows for the operative control of the QDMC with the evaluation of medical personnel, as well as for improving the effectiveness of treatment and optimizing the patient flow. It is indicated that the electronic method of collecting, storing and processing data makes it possible to combine the efforts of specialists who are participants in the process of providing dental care to the population in a single information field, which undoubtedly should make a significant contribution to improving the efficiency of their treatment.
