      Objective: To compare the perception of facial aesthetics in patients, among students, patients and teachers of the UPC health center. Materials and Methods: A panel of 45 dentist, 45 dental students and 45 patients evaluated the facial aesthetics in the profile of 12 patients (3 patients for each malocclusion) using a visual analog scale (VAS) rating from 0 to 10 (from less to more attractive). Results: The results showed that for the three groups studied the most aesthetic malocclusion was the class II division 2. In addition. It was demonstrated that the student group was the strictest group and the one that rated profiles more negatively. Conclusions: The study supports the idea that the perception of aesthetic varies according to different populations. The results show class II division 2 malocclusion as the most aesthetic which differs to similar studies performed in foreign populations.
