During the Great Patriotic War in Kazan, evacuation hospitals were established in Kazan. Teachers of the Kazan State Dental Institute made an invaluable contribution to their work, offering advice and medical aid to the wounded and sick. During the war, members of the department significantly improved the quality of the treatment of the wounded in the maxillofacial region, which contributed to their rapid recovery and return to the troops or to labor. The Great Patriotic War was a special period for the Department of Orthopedic Dentistry of Kazan State Dental Institute, when everything was aimed at providing high quality care and rehabilitation of patients. Staff members of the department of orthopedic dentistry proposed a number of original methods, orthotics and prostheses for the treatment of severe wounds in the maxillofacial region, which have been successfully used in those years. The designs of these devices and prostheses are not outdated; they are successfully used today to treat patients with maxillofacial injuries. Researches of thoughtful and talented scientists, whose labors are methodically published not only in scientific works, but also in prosthetic dentistry textbooks, valuable for the professional development of a new generation of students of dental faculties. Teaching staff of the department of orthopedic dentistry cherishes the memory of the staff members, who contributed to the development and improvement of dental education in the city of Kazan.
