The objective of this study is to determine the correlation between periodontitis and obesity in patients reporting at the Tradi-tional Medicine Institute in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. This cross-sectional study sample consisted of 679 adult patients aged between 18 and 83 years who visited examination department, the Traditional Medicine Institute, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. All participants completed the questionnaire, had anthropometric (weight, height, waist circumference) and body fat percentage measurements; and periodontal ex-amination (BOP, PI, GI, PD and CAL). The fasting glycemic level and type 2 diabetic status were also determined. Whatever different definitions of obesity used (body mass index, waist-hip ratio and body fat per-centage), the prevalence of periodontitis in the obese group was significantly higher when compared with the non-obese group (p <0.05). In multivariate logistic regression analysis, body mass index, waist-hip ratio and body fat percentage de-fined obesity were significantly associated with periodontitis, presenting OR of 2.16 (1.35-3.45), 2.09 (1.34-3.26), and 2.71 (1.82-4.05), respectively (p<0.05). BOP and CAL were also significantly correlated with periodontitis. Conclusion: Obesity was significantly associated with increased odds of periodontitis (p<0.05).
