Background: Malocclusion is commonly seen condition in young adults. This study aimed to assess malocclusion and orthodontic treatment needs among subjects with dental aesthetic index (DAI). Materials and Methods: This study comprised 486 subjects with an age range of 16–24 years of either genders. A careful oral examination was performed and all findings were recorded based on Oral Health Survey—Basic Methods. DAI was used to assess orthodontic treatment needs among subjects. Results: A maximum of 129 (26.5%) patients (male, 47 [22.8%], female, 82 [29.2%]) had DAI score of >36. Missing teeth was the most commonly observed condition, especially in females. There was a significant difference in spacing, crowding, maxillary, mandibular irregularity, overjet, and spacing between both genders. Conclusion: It was found that maximum patients had severe malocclusion with DAI score >36. This indicates the orthodontic treatment needs among subjects.
