The aim of the present study was to evaluate the anti bacterial activity of Glycyrrhiza glabra on selected oral microbes. Antibacterial activity of ethanolic root extract of Glycyrrhiza glabra was screened against Streptococcus mutans, streptococcus sanguis, Streptococcus salivarius, Streptococcus mitis, and Lactobacillus acidophilus using disc diffusion technique. The Minimum inhibitory concentration [MIC] and Minimum bactericidal concentration [MBC] of the extracts were also determined. The results of this study showed that the extracts at different concentrations exhibited anti bacterial activity against the bacterial species tested.
