Logistic regression is commonly statistical methods used in empirical study including categorical dependent variables .In accurate study of reviews dental carries   associated with some variables as sex, drink milk, smoking, Extract teeth and diabetics. Aim of study is examine common practices of the results and interpretation of logistic regression data .Determinate some variables (dependent variables that was effect on denial carries. In results and by used two methods as enter methods and steps wise forward to determine sex and extract teeth which more dependent variables on independent variables (yi) dental carries.
