The study of 39,487 patients documented in University of Benin Dental hospital general practice register revealed infection, (47.20%) as the most dominant normative oral health need. Followed by caries (21.75%) and periodontal disease (18.75%). A public oral health policy directed to these normative needs is recommended.
