KSMA's Dentistry

Dentistry is a professional career dedicated to the evaluation, diagnosis,

prevention and treatment of diseases, disorders and conditions of the oral cavity, maxillofacial
area (upper and lower jaws), associated structures next to these areas and their impact on the
human body. Oral health is widely considered necessary for complete general health. As a dentist,
you are a member of the healthcare team providing advice to the public about oral healthcare.
Your job will also include restoring function to badly decayed, broken or infected teeth, replacing
missing teeth with dentures, bridges or implant-supported prostheses, treatment of oral diseases
such as inflammatory diseases of gum and supporting tissues, destructive diseases such as cancer
of the oral tissues, the aligning and straightening of teeth.
Dentists work is not confined to filling and pulling out teeth. The care that
dentists are trained to provide greatly improves the quality of their patients lives. Oral diseases
like tooth decay, gum diseases and oral cancer, malocclusion (when teeth in the upper and lower
jaws do not fit properly), genetic deformities and anomalies affecting the oro-facial complex, and
other oral problems can cause a great deal of discomfort, pain and adversely affect oral functions
such as chewing food, talking or playing of musical instruments. A patients appearance, self-
esteem and confidence can also be greatly enhanced through various types of dental procedures.
Dentists are usually not required to be on call at night nor to make house calls.
Thus it is easier for dentists to achieve a perfect balance between their professional and personal
A wide variety of teaching-learning approaches are employed in the dental
program to provide a stimulating environment for learning. These include lectures, problem
based learning (PBL), practical classes, patient simulation practical, clinical skills sessions, e-
learning, independent learning, clinical dental treatment of patients and postings to various
hospitals and clinics.
Degrees Offered: D.M.D. - Doctor of Dental Medicine (only in Russian)
Length: 10 semesters, including successful testing of the State examination.

the Republic of the Former Soviet Union.
Kyrgyzstan is located in the Northern part of Central Asia, in the heart of the Eurasian
Its Territory of 198.5 thousand square km is equal to the combined area of Portugal,
Switzerland, Belgium and the Netherlands. It stretches 925 km from East to West, and 453 km from North
to South.
The Border
The border of the Republic generally follows natural boundaries: Mountain Ranges and Rivers.
Kyrgyzstan borders on China, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan.
Kyrgyzstan is a country of Sunshine and High Snow covered Mountain, deep, narrow gorges
cut by Swift Rivers, and beautiful Mountain Lakes.
Mountains/ Glaciers/Rivers
Kyrgyzstan is a Mountainous Country. More than 93% of Kyrgyzstans surface area is more
than 1,500 m above the sea level.41 % is bleak, high, and Mountainous, located at over 300 m. the
Maximum height above sea level is 7,439 m, the Minimum height is 401 m. long mountain chains stretch
from East to West forming the part of the great Tein-Shan Mountains. Tein-Shan is a Chinese name; the
Kyrgyz name is Tenir-Too, or Acelestial Mountain. They deserve this name. Most peaks lie above the
Snow Line. Among them is the World known peaks Pobeda (7.439 m), Lenin (7.134 m), and the legendry
Han-Tengry Pyramid (6,995 m) of pink and white Marble and Granite.
The Tein-Shan and Alai Mountains condense significant mass of atmospheric moisture in the
form of Snowflakes, Snow Fields and Glaciers. There are almost 8,000 Glaciers, covering an area of over
6000 km and more than 40,000 Rivers and Streams. All the Rivers empty into the Basis of Central Asia.
Their combined Length is roughly 150,000 km, and the yearly drainage is 47 cubic km.
Kyrgyzstans most important river is the Naryn which collect water from a huge area of the Tein-
Shan and converges in the Ferghana Valley with the other major river of the Republic, the Kara-Dyrya,
which originates on the slop of the Alai and Ferghana ranges. The confluence of these two powerful rivers
forms the Syr-Darya, the second largest river in Central Asia, after the Amu-Darya River.

There are many Lakes in the Republic. The largest is Lake Issyk-Kul, the Kyrgyz hot lake,
which is situated at an altitude of over 1,600 meters above Sea level. It is the second largest lake in the
World, after Lake Titicaca in South America. In volume (1,738 cubic km) and depth (668 m), Issyk-Kul is
unmatched I world. Some other relatively large lakes, Sonkyol (area 292 square km) and Chatyrkyol (180
square km), were formed by the movement of tectonic plates.
Animal Life
Animal life in the Republic is rich and diverse; there are more than 80 species of Mammals,
more than 330 species of Birds, about 50 species of Fish and around 30 species of Reptiles and
Amphibians. The most widely hunted animals are found at altitudes of 2,000 to 5,000 meters above sea
level. Marmots, Gophers, Turkmen Rats, Porcupines, Martens, Wolves, Foxes Badgers, mountain goats
and Sheep inhabit the upper reaches of the Republic. There are also Bears, Lynxes and Snow Leopards
species represents include, Woodpeckers, Eagles and Gulls.
Natural Resources
Natures as lavished the Republic with valuable Minerals. Not only deposits of vary elements
there are in Kyrgyzstan but also Oil, Gas, Peat and Coal of all grades. Coal reserves are estimated 24.4
Billion Tones. Lead and Zinc ore has been discovered in almost all regions, and deposits of Mercury,
Tungsten, Tin and Gold have also been found. The Republic is also rich in Non-ore Mineral deposits;
Limestone, Marble, Granite, Gypsum, Clay and Sandy Gravel materials. At the altitude of 3 km above sea
level the occurrences of a brownish black Semi-Mineral substance with heating properties called
Mummies is found.
The climate range from extreme continental to nearly maritime due t considerable relive
ruggedness and large nonfreezing Lake Issyk-Kul Summer is dry and hot, winter is rather cold, especially
in the mountains and basins.
Four climate zones are determined here;

Valley zone
(from 500-600 to 900-1000 m height). Hot summer (+28 degree c) and moderate cold snow less
winter characterize it. An average annual temperature is +20c in Summer and -4/-7 in Winter. In some
places temperature reaches +47c. it drops as the height increases and the absolute temperature is -22/-30 c,
only in some places it drops lower -40 c.

Middle mountainous zone

(from 900-1200 to 2000-2200 m heights) has typical Moderate climate with warm Summer
and moderate snowy and cold Winter. Average annual temperature is +18c in summer (July) and -7/-8 c in
winter (January)

High mountainous zone

(from 2000-2200 to 3000-4500 m height) is characterized by summer and very snowy winter.
July temperature is +11/-16 c January -8/-10 c. winter is low (from November to March). In the upper part
of the zone the freezing period lasts 3-4 months.

Nival zone
(more than 3500 m heights) is characterized by severe and very cold climate. This is the zone
of snow, rocks, glaciers and moisture accumulations. Even in the lower parts the zone July temperature
does not exceed +4/-7 c and in the January it drops lower than -19/-20 c.
