The Department of Therapeutic Dentistry was established in October 1996. It was one of the first at the Dental Faculty of Vinnitsa National Medical University named after M.I. Pirogov. The sources of creation of departments of the dental faculty were, first of all, the rector of the university, academician V.M. Frost and Dean of the Faculty of Dentistry Candidate of Medical Sciences, Associate Professor T.T. Postolovskaya. The first head of the department from 1996 to 2014 was Doctor of Medical Sciences, Professor V.M. Kuligin. During the management of the department, she organized educational, methodological, scientific and medical work. The first base of the department was 3 training rooms in 30 Blocks street. From 1999 to 2005 The main base of the department was the dental department of the military hospital. Then the main base was in the research center of VNMU in 11 Medvedev street, which consisted of 3 treatment rooms. Practical classes were also held on the bases of dental offices at Vinnitsa Building College and Vinnitsa National Agrarian University. The first teaching staff consisted of 7 teachers.
In March 2015 the department was headed by Assoc. Shinkaruk-Dikovitskaya Maria Mikhailovna. In February 2016, the department changed its location, the main base is now located in a new spacious room in 2/19Stus street, has a large clinical room for 7 dental units, 5 training rooms, equipped with dental units each, sterilizing with new equipment, an assistant room with modern office equipment, a dressing room for students. And also there is a base in NDC on 11 Amosov street, and a training class in the morphological building of VNMU after M.I Pirogov.
Under the direction of the new head - MD, prof. Shinkaruk-Dikovitskaya M.M. the department staff works successfully : associate professor , phd. L.O. Kovalchuk, associate professor. N.G.

The staff of the department issued educational and methodical manuals "Features of the course and treatment of dental caries and its complications in childhood", "Caries of teeth", "Pulpit", a training manual for English-speaking students of dental faculties of higher medical educational institutions of the Precinct ІVІІ ІІІ Dentistry ", which helps improve the training of dental students.
Educational and methodological work occupies a significant place in the activity of the department. At the Department of Therapeutic Dentistry students are engaged in 2, 3, 4, 5 courses. During the study of the subject students take 4 differentiated credits, transfer and state exams, write educational and academic medical history. 2 year students study propaedeutics of therapeutic dentistry. At the end of the course, students take a differentiated credit. The 3rd year students study odontopathology (dental caries, non-carious lesions, pulpitis, periodontitis). After 3 years, students take a transfer exam in the subject. The 4th year students study periodontal tissue diseases. At the end of the course, students take a differentiated credit.
Students of the 5th year in the 9th semester study diseases of the mucous membrane of the oral cavity, take a differentiated test; in the X semester they are subordinate, take a differentiated credit. After the 5th year the graduates pass the complex practically-oriented state exam in the specialty "Dentistry". The staff of the department created a bank of test tasks and complex qualification works, as well as models, phantoms, photos, slides, videos and other teaching aids for students' training.

The staff of the department performed a clinical-experimental study of the effectiveness of the developed method of treatment of periodontal diseases in young people, which involves the use of drugs immobilized on sorbents, and local natural factors, in particular radon. Methods of prolonged action of drugs for local treatment and prevention of major dental diseases using adhesive compositions and physiotherapy methods have been developed. The staff of the department conducts epidemiological, laboratory, psychological, immunological, microbiological, functional methods of research. Conducted complex epidemiological and psychological examination of patients made it possible to assess the relationship of major dental diseases with the psycho-emotional state of patients. Criteria for evaluation of adaptive capabilities of lip hemodynamics using Doppler ultrasound have been developed. The staff of the department proposed new modern methods of assessing the supply of vitamins to dental patients. Thorough microbiological studies, conducted by the department's researchers, made it possible to assess the microbiocenosis of the oral cavity and red lip border and to develop effective methods of correction of the detected disorders. The department pays great attention to the research of non-specific resistance of the body of dental patients. Disorders of the adaptation state of patients, revealed during the examination, open new aspects of the pathogenesis of dental diseases and lead to the need for their rational correction in complex treatment. A comprehensive immunological examination of patients with diseases of the oral mucosa revealed a significant suppression of the specific resistance of the body of patients and became the reason for the development of immunocorrective therapy in such patients. The work has made it possible to develop and put into practice new methods of diagnostics and treatment of diseases of periodontium, mucous membrane of the oral cavity and red border of lips.
Established in somatically healthy men of Ukraine, regional indexes of frequency of superficial, middle and deep caries, chronic fibrous, granulating and granulomatous periodontitis, cystogranulom, cysts and chronic fibrous pulpitis, absence of teeth and crowns of teeth, and the condition of separate teeth of the lower teeth, as well as the indices of caries intensity, tooth enamel resistance to caries and oral hygiene are the basis for correct assessment of dental health status. tall in Ukraine. This is necessary to identify risk factors and create effective national and regional programs for the prevention of dental caries and its complications. Somatically healthy men of Ukraine have regional features of lesions of different groups of teeth with caries and its complications according to the dental and computed tomographic examination; indices of dental caries intensity (CPV), tooth enamel resistance to caries and level of oral hygiene without distribution and with distribution at different levels of CPV were determined. Доведено, що застосування конусно-променевої комп'ютерної томографії дозволяє більш коректно оцінити стан зубів, ніж стандартне клінічне стоматологічне обстеження.
It is determined that the dermatoglyphic picture of somatically healthy men of Ukraine is formed mainly due to the genetic contribution of persons with low and medium levels of CPV. The results obtained allowed us to develop prognostic mathematical models of the tendency to a certain level of intensity of dental caries, or resistance of tooth enamel to caries, depending on the established specificity of dermatoglyphic indicators. The results obtained confirm the objectivity of the use of dermatoglyphic indices as markers of the adverse course of dental caries, for predicting and carrying out treatment-and-prophylactic measures.
Obtained results of epidemiological, psychological, immunological and laboratory examination of patients became the basis for further research on the prediction of the development and course of major dental diseases, as well as finding ways to improve the effectiveness of treatment of dental patients.
The department also deals with caries prevention in pregnant women and women during lactation. The developed method of prevention showed high efficiency by the results of experimental and clinical and laboratory methods of research.
