To fulfill this aim, we carried out this experiment periodically during the past 10 years at the end of the exercises of orthodontics and maxillofacial prosthetics on the basis of children`s game and entertainment during the paedodontic training. Subjects of this study were students of this speciality in the Medical College of Varna. A total of 100 Bulgarian and foreign students were enrolled.
