Introduction: To determine the periodontal status and treatment needs using CPITN in a group of adult diabetic patients attending OPD in a private dental clinic in Ahmedabad. Materials and Methods: One hundred and two diabetic patients were screened by a single examiner according to the WHO criteria using a mouth mirror and CPITN probe. The patients were selected from the routine OPD after obtaining verbal consent for the same, and about 76 patients were included in the study, which was carried out for 9 months. Results: Results showed that the highest number of patients had code 3. The majority of sextants had code 2 and 3. Amongst all, 42 patients had a TN score of 2 and 33 had TN score of 3. 56–65 age groups had the worst periodontal status among all groups and required the highest periodontal treatment. Conclusion: The periodontal health of our diabetic patients reinforces the need to establish a comprehensive oral health promotion programme for diabetic patients with a multidisciplinary approach.
