    Background: A line from the lower border of the ala of the nose to the upper border of the tragus of the ear is called Ala- Tragus line. It is one of the most commonly used occlusal reference plane for complete denture construction. Ala-Tragus line consists of three different levels such as superior, middle, and inferior. Aim: The aim of the study was to evaluate the occlusal plane (OP) (Ala Tragus line) in Dentulous patient among South Indian population and Malaysian population. Materials and Methods: A total of 40 participants, in which 20 South Indian and the other 20 Malaysian were participated in this study. The subjects were asked to sit in upright position and three lines were drawn from the inferior border of the ala of the nose to the three different level (Superior, Middle, and Inferior) of the tragus of the ear on both sides using dental plaster and finally check for the parallelism using fox plane. Results: The majority (87%) of the population shows OP was found to be parallel to the inferior level of the tragus, and there is no parallelism between the OP and the superior level of the tragus among both the population and there is no significant difference in OP relationship between South Indian and Malaysian population. Conclusion: There is no significant difference in OP relationship between South Indian and Malaysian population. And the inferior border of the ala tragal line is suggested as the best posterior reference point in younger age individuals.
