    Background: The purpose of classification of partial edentulous arches provides communication between dental colleagues, students, technician about the case, for planning good treatment and to design the partial denture. It also predicts the difficulties commonly occurring with particular removable partial denture design. Therefore, this study was conducted to determine the prevalence of partial edentulism according to Kennedy classification. Aim: This study aims to evaluate and compare the frequency of prevalence of various partial edentulism based on Kennedy’s classification in relation to arch, age, and gender of the patients. Methodology: The study was conducted in patients attending outpatient clinic in Saveetha Dental College and Hospital. The survey was done in 200 patients based on age groups (20–30 years, 30–40 years, 40–50 years, and 50– 60 years), arch (maxilla and mandible), and genders (male and female). The survey was done by doing visual examination for determining the prevalence of partial edentulism. Result: Based on the data collected, the prevalence of Class III was more in both the genders of about 70% followed by the prevalence of Class I accounting for about 16% in female and 11% in males. Conclusion: Kennedy’s Class III was the most common in both dental arches. Gender had no effect on the prevalence of various Kennedy’s classes, while age had a significant effect. Mandibular partial edentulism was found to be more common than maxillary partial edentulism.
