Results. Patients aged more than 65 y. o. were less informed on possibilities of preservation of health of an oral cavity. Index of КПУ in aged group increased due to the remote teeth, the quantity of carious and the sealed up teeth was at one level.

The development of strategy of providing of the stomatologic care is necessary for the elderly population, one of which obligatory components is the educational work considering the specific features of senior patients.
