Abstract
One of the main objectives of orthodontic treatment is to improve dental and facial esthetics. The understanding of soft tissues of the face in relation to the dentoskeletal tissues is essential in esthetic orthodontic treatment.

This is a descriptive study with a cross sectional approach using level stratified-cluster sampling method. The subjects of this study are 200 high school students in Medan. Lateral photographs of each subject were taken and their facial profile was measured. Results: The facial profile of high school students in Medan are convex 92.5%, straight 5.0%, and concave 2.5%. There were no significant differences in the facial profile of high school students in Medan based on gender. The facial profile of high school students in Medan is generally convex.
