Abstract: There is a very few data available on the DMFT of population from Saudi Arabia. This study was carried out to assess full mouth DMFT and ratio of molars DMFT, to develop preventing guidelines. One hundred and eighty patients were examined in three groups ie 25-34, 35-44 and 45-55 ye a rs. It was found that almost 50 % of the total DMFT was constituted by first and second molars. So it is recommended that there is a need of focussing on these teeth first of all by fissure sealants, or preventive resin restorations with water fluoridation and dietary considerations.
