Objectives: This study intended to evaluate the prevalence of different classes of removable partial prosthesis based on Kenedy’s classification in dental prosthesis, in Tabriz Faculty of Dentistry.

The collected data were analyzed either independently or as dependant on the age, gender, and educational level variable using SPSS version 16.0. The level of significance was considered P<0.05in this study. Results: In all treated patients, class I partial prosthesis was the most prevelant class (40.6%) and class II mod IV were the least ones (0.4%). Pearson correlation test displayed that there is no significant association between the classification of partial prosthesis and the age, gender, and educational level variables (P>0.05).
