Abstract.áBackground. Strategic objective of the healthcare development at the present stage is improvement of quality of life and health promotion among citizens of the Russian Federation, including citizens of advanced age. However, age-related changes have a negative impact on the elderly dental health resulting in higher demand for geriatric dental care. Needs assessment in dental care among the elderly is substantiated by the objective to ensure delivery of dental care in the adequate volume and of high quality based on the development of geriatric dental care in the Stavropol territory.

The study purpose. Needs assessment in dental care among patients of geriatric residential social service institutions in the Stavropol territory.

Methods: a total survey of 1516 patients of geriatric residential social service institutions in the Stavropol territory.

Results.áAccording to the study results, 62.8% of patients of geriatric residential social service institutions need dental care. The highest need in dental care was registered in small geriatric residential care facilities with no more than 50 residents. The main reasons for applying for dental care include the following: mastication problems ľ 19.6%, unsatisfactory condition of the mouth cavity ľ 16.2%, loss of teeth ľ 15.7%, and discomfort with prosthetic dentures ľ 7.7%.

Availability of dental care to the elderly directly depends upon location of a geriatric residential care facility. For the elderly residing in city geriatric care facilities the main reason for not receiving the necessary dental care is financial difficulties ľ 18.2%, while for those living in rural geriatric care facilities - lack of dental offices (24.6%).

Conclusions. The elderly in geriatric residential social service institutions rate their dental health as poorer compared to day care patients. Residents of geriatric social service institutions located in rural areas have limited access to high quality and adequate dental care.

Scope of application. The study identified major avenues of work to improve the system of geriatric dental care delivery in facilities of the social service system of the Stavropol territory.

Keywords. advanced age; senile age; social service institutions; geriatric dental care.
