Aim: this study was designed to evaluate the abilityed antropometry as a new method of determining the VDO.

Method & Materials: A group of 229 complete dentate dental students were selected with class I occlusion. Subnasal to submental was measured in maximum intercuspation. Subnasal to the incisal edge of the maxillary incisors, was also measured in addition to submental to the incisal edge of the mandibular incisors. The last measurment was performed at submental to mentom groove and right and left bipapillary areas. Measurements were made with a modified measuring gauge. The mean values and reggresion for the measurments were calculated and used for statistical analysis.

Results: The mean value of alove the mentioned measurments were calculated which helped to determine the occlusal planes and V.D.O. Regression analysis between variables were from 0.27 to 0.66 (P<0.05).

Conclusion: It is concluded that some guidelines could be used in determination the V.D.O using antropometry.
