were chosen from those who had received new sets of complete dentures that were constructed in the prosthodontic clinic of Queen Alia Hospital within a two-year period. Personality evaluation was conducted via the personality questionnaire [NEO-FFI] , which is a 60 item profile covering five domains of personality, and was completed by the psychologist at the same hospital. Denture satisfaction, on the other hand, was graded using a five item scale with five- Likert type responses each, and was completed by the prosthodontist. Correlation between the two factors was determined using Pearson's correlation analysis. Weak statistical correlation was found between the two main elements of study: personality factors and denture satisfaction.
