Objective: We performed a hygienic assessment of the placement of high-technology equipment in the modern medical stomatologic institutions, located in the built-in rooms of the residential buildings.

Materials and methods: We investigated medical stomatologic institutions, built into residential buildings. We applied theoretical methods and method of sanitary-and-epidemiological examination of the projects for construction and reconstruction.

Results: In the course of the study, a hygienic assessment of the location of medical stomatologic institutions of a low throughput, placed on the side of street facades in the built-in rooms of residential buildings and equipped with high-technology medical devices, was performed, and sanitary-and-hygienic measures for the minimization of the impact of medical equipment on the conditions of medical workers and living conditions of the residents of the residential building and other factors were developed.

Conclusions: When considering the placement of modern stomatologic clinics, built into residential buildings, we established:
- the placement of the stomatologic clinics on the first and basement floors from the side of street facades and with separate entrance groups, isolated from the residential sections, does not lead to the deterioration of living conditions of the residents;
- the mode of work of stomatologic clinics, built into residential buildings, does not affect the acoustic regime of the adjoining territory and residential apartments of the building and does not violate the legislation on the protection of the population from noise;
- the medical stomatologic institutions are equipped with modern high-technology medical devices and devices of foreign production (USA, Finland, Germany, Brazil) which enhance safety and quality of the provision of the stomatologic services to the population and improve the working conditions of medical personnel;
- the location of medical equipment in X-ray rooms of medical stomatologic institutions is delimited with other rooms in accordance with the requirements of radiation safety;
- the complex of the measures for X-ray protection ensured a compliance with sanitary-and-hygienic working conditions of medical personnel, patients and residents of the residential building.
Thus, while complying with sanitary-and-hygienic requirements, the placement of high-technology medical equipment in the stomatologic clinics, built into residential buildings will not affect the living conditions of the inhabitants and will approach medical stomatologic services to the population.
