The responses analysis to the questions on the telemedicine attitudes has been shown, that more than two - third of the doctors - dentists are quite positively related towards the telemedicine technologies adoption and their further use (e.g. Table No.1). So, the highest need evaluation is in the distant education (e.g. 78,5%), which may be explained by the necessity of the regular passage of the several certification courses to be confirmed the qualification categories for the different sections of the dentistry, by the necessity to be mastered the modern methods of the diagnosis, and the medical treatment, in order to be maintained the personal competitiveness in the dental services market.
