Materials and methods: This study is a Cross sectional clinical study that took place in the Benghazi Diabetic treatment center in Libya 2018. Ethical approval was gained from the diabetic center. Three hundred patients were examined and questioned by four periodontists with age range from 16 to 80 years old.

Female patients showed significant better plaque index score than males with P value (0.001 %). Furthermore, significant correlation was found between plaque index and periodontal disease index with (P value <0.001). In regard oral hygiene practice 40.3 % brushed once daily. And a significant relation was found between using toothbrush and both of the PI and PDI. Conclusion: the awareness of the diabetic patients needs to be raised through education programs.
