Abstract
The treatment-mix, treatment time, and dental status of 268 male industrial workers entitled to employer-provided dental care were studied. The data were collected from treatment records of the covered workers over the 5-year period 1989-93. Treatment time was based on clinical treatment time recorded per patient visit, and the treatment procedure codes were reclassified into a treatment-mix according to American Dental Association categories, with a modification combining endodontics and restorative treatment. The mean number of check-ups followed by prescribed treatment (treatment courses) during the 5 years was 3.7 among those who had entered the in-house dental care program prior to the monitored period (old attenders). Their treatment time was stable, 57-63 min per year, while the first-year mean treatment time (170 min) of those who had entered the program during the study period (new attenders) was significantly higher (P

Abstract
Health history forms are an integral component of students' clinical and didactic training in physical assessment and often serve as a model for students to use in their future practices. This study examined how alcohol and tobacco use are assessed in patient health history forms used in the dental schools of the United States and Canada (n = 63). Deans of schools were requested to send a copy of their health history and other supplemental forms used for patient care. The response rate was 98 percent. Almost 25 percent of the schools' forms did not address either alcohol or tobacco use; 37 percent failed to address one or both risk behaviors; 25 percent did not request tobacco information; and 36 percent did not address alcohol use. Major inconsistencies regarding the inclusion, content, and quantity of alcohol and tobacco questions were noted. Consensus among dental schools as to which questions to include in their health forms was not apparent.

Abstract
Although the phrase quality assurance has only recently been used in the health care field, it is clear that the concept is far from new. As has been described, early efforts by the American Dental Association in licensure and accreditation of professional educational programs were directed toward providing the consumer of health care services confidence in the quality of care being rendered. Such programs serve as a strong foundation upon which current work can build ongoing and future efforts. This current effort is a logical step along the path that was defined many years ago by the dental profession. Although current projects in dental quality assurance are exciting and new, the commitment to assuring the American public of the highest possible quality of dental care is not new. The goal of the American Dental Association remains unchanged: patients entering the dental health care system must be able to do so with confidence that they will receive quality care.

Abstract
Urgent need in methodology of information estimation for true clinical decision taking gave powerful impulse for evidence based medicine concept development that appeared at the end of 80th years. Proved efficacy and safety, optimal correlation of the indices were the stages of the methods and means selection for rationing. In our country such approach found its reflection in developing clinical protocol conducting (standards for doctors), in vitaly important medicines listing and lists of medicines that could be refunded in the system of additional medicine provision.
