On the background of objectively poor state of dental health of population, approximately half (52 %) of people appreciate it inadequately, and inadequately consider the social consequences of its violation. Application of the OralHealthImpact Profile-14 method allows to improve the adequacy and objectivity of self-assessment of dental health, because it actively draws additional attention and opens a wide range of the associated spheres of life. This method is appropriate to apply during dental examination of patients, and during the process of health education with different populations.
