The results were computed by using formula. In all, 891 subjects were studied. The results revealed that in year 1998, of every 100 samples there has been 77.6 cases demand for dental services due to oral and dental problems. However, only 40.4 cases received these services. These numbers after population weighting go up to 91.9 and 47.88 times, respectively. Each dentist has delivered services to 7377 individuals in Isfahan in 1998.  !fall  the people suffering from dental and oral problems  had  received  these  services,  each dentist  would  have  managed  to cover 3846 individuals.
