This study was designed to measured to closest speaking space associated with, free way space and facial measurements. Methods & Materials: A group of 32 girls and 40 boys were selected in a systematic sampling manner.

Results: Evaluations were made using statistical analysis showed no significant difference between closest speaking space and free way space. Conclusion: Regression analysis revealed that correlation between facial measurements and VDO is also not statistically significant. But there was a linear relationship between overbite and VDO.
