Well-known specialists in the field of pediatric dentistry have been working in the Department since its Foundation. So the well-known highly qualified maxillofacial surgeon, Professor ESIM A.

Currently, dental care for children is provided by the following specialists with higher medical education: General dentist, pediatric dentist, orthodontist, and dental hygienists with secondary medical education.
Dental disease prevention is the foundation of dental science and practice. In the Republic of Kazakhstan, for the first time, the prevention of dental diseases has been introduced since 1985, and the first “Program for the prevention of dental diseases in children” was compiled in 1989 by G.M. Negametzyanov with the participation of employees of our department, which was designed until 2000, then extended until 2005. The implementation of this program in the next 3-5 years has yielded positive results. One of the ways to implement the development strategy of dentistry is to create a state system of prevention and its resource support, and the lack of a national program for the prevention of dental diseases was the lack of economic justification. Many theoretical issues and regional features of the prevention of dental diseases were developed by A.A. Kabulbekov, A.Zh. Esim, K.Z. Shalabaeva and others.
Department of Pediatric Dentistry from the day of foundation until the end of 2014. worked on the basis of the Children’s Dental Clinic of Almaty, which for many years was headed by Ph.D. Negametzyanov G.M. The department fruitfully carried out clinical work with students, employees conducted research work, collecting material from dissertations. The management of the clinic close cooperation with the faculty of the department was carried out through the deputy chief doctor Siyrbay S.D.
