The Faculty of Dentistry was established at Dagestan State Medical Institute in 1965. The credit for this belongs to the rector, Professor Maksudov Magomed Magomedovich who made a huge contribution to the development of practical health care and science. A modern model polyclinic with a maxillofacial hospital with 45 beds was founded by him and his associates (Gitelman N. T., Alisultanov A. A., Gadzhiev N. G). Here surgical care was provided to the patients with maxillofacial injuries, congenital defect and acquired defects of the maxillofacial area, oral cavity with acute and chronic purulent infection as well as surgical hospital was opened. Honored Doctor and Scientist of DASSR, Professor Maksudov M. M. is the founder of surgical dentistry in Dagestan and in the North Caucasus as a whole.

In fairness, it should be noted that when M. M. Maksudov returned to his native Dagestan in 1940 the republic had already had a dental service. Makhachkala Dental Polyclinic run by N. T. Gitelman at that time was functioning well. The dental school headed by Fetisov produced dental technicians. Dagestan branch of the All-Union Society of Dentists began working since 1937.

Having outstanding personal qualities M. M. Maksudov joined this service, immediately moved to its leaders. During the terrible war years, he was the leading surgeon of the maxillofacial department of the evacuation hospital. His brilliant operations saved lives, brought back hundreds of soldiers wounded in the maxillofacial region. His innovative solutions in the treatment of the wounded have been summarized in scientific publications. In particular, his scientific publication “Secondary bleeding in gunshot wounds of the jaw” was published in 1943, “Reconstructive surgery of the face” in 1944 , “Filatov’s stem in facial plastic surgery” in 1945.








Particular importance among the publications of the war period and the first post-war years were the works on osteoplasty of the lower jaw. In these works the author acts as an innovator who has developed a fundamentally new method of plastic restoration of the lower jaw defect by freely applying a graft. Based on the materials of his work in the maxillofacial department M. M. Maksudov prepared and successfully defended his PhD thesis on the topic: “Osteoplasty of the lower jaw after a gunshot wound” in 1956. In 1967 M. M. Maksudov brilliantly defended his dissertation for the degree of Doctor of Medical Sciences and soon became a professor.

As the rector of the Dagestan Medical Institute, M. M. Maksudov gave a lot of spiritual strength and creative energy to the organization of his favorite brainchild-the Faculty of Dentistry which was established in 1965. It should be noted that by that time under his own leadership a clinical base had been already prepared in Makhachkala — the largest Republican Dental polyclinic in the North Caucasus.

In 1967, when the students of the Faculty of Dentistry moved to the third year, the Department of Dentistry was opened and headed by Professor Maksudov M. M.

Experienced teachers-associate professors Sinitsyn V. D. and Bazarnova S. M.  were invited from   Moscow Medical Dental Institute to assist in the organization of educational and methodological work and lectures on orthopedic and therapeutic dentistry. Lectures on surgical dentistry were given by Professor M. M. Maksudov himself.

In 1970 in connection with the expansion of the volume of work and the replenishment of the staff of teachers (by that time, the specialists who had completed the targeted postgraduate study also returned), the Department of Dentistry was transformed into three independent specialized departments. The Department of Surgical Dentistry was headed by Professor M. M. Maksudov.

The head of the Department of Orthopedic Dentistry was a Doctor of Medical Sciences Knubovets Ya. S., one of the authors of the popular textbook “Dental equipment”. Doctor of Medical Sciences A. S. Zaslavsky was invited to head the Department of Therapeutic Dentistry. The Faculty of Dentistry lived a full-blooded life. At the faculty, research work was launched, training of scientific and pedagogical personnel was organized through postgraduate studies on the basis of specialized departments.

In particular, under the direct supervision of  Maksudov M. M. were prepared and defended  the doctoral dissertation of G. E. Dranovsky, the candidate dissertations of P. P. Huseynov, A. R. Gadzhiev, G. M. Gusenov, A. S. Akhmedkhanov and a number of others. Maksudov’s monograph “Homotransplantation of dental rudiments”, published in 1970 was a major contribution to the domestic dental science.

At the Department of Therapeutic Dentistry headed by Zaslavsky A.S. for the first 3 years a group of graduate students developed issues related to periodontal diseases, as well as regional pathology. Currently, the department carries out scientific research within the framework of the federal and republican programs on the topic “Major dental diseases, their prevention and treatment”. Employees are protected 12 master’s theses. Currently, all five specialized departments of the Faculty of Dentistry of Dagestan State Medical University are headed by students and followers of Professor Maksudov M. M. Many graduates of the Faculty of Dentistry have become well-known scientists and health care organizers and successfully work in many regions of the Russian Federation and abroad. The scientific ideas put forward by Professor Maksudov M. M. are still being developed by his successors. Summarizing the above we can draw the following conclusion: Maksudov M. M. being an outstanding organizer of health care, a talented scientist made a significant contribution to the development of dental science in Dagestan and in fact is its founder.

First, he organized the training of scientific and pedagogical personnel for the Faculty of  Dentistry  through a targeted postgraduate program. Secondly, Maksudov M. M.  invited experienced highly qualified specialists from large university centers to work in Dagestan.

Third, Maksudov M. M.   provided training of scientific and pedagogical personnel from among the graduates of the Faculty of Dentistry through postgraduate studies both on its own basis and in the leading scientific centers of the country.

Even today the students and followers of Professor Maksudov M. M. continue to make a significant contribution to the development of dental science in Dagestan and the Russian Federation.

E., Zaslavsky A. S., Knubovets Ya. S., associate professors Gomerstein E. E., Sinitsyn V. D., Gorovoy Yu. M., Rokhlenko.
