The article describes applying the Analytic Network Process to model the influence of various factors on oral health status. The network model, based on the knowledge of experts, enables us to find the factors which have a profound effect on the health status of the organismâ€™s systems under conditions of interdependence. The outcomes obtained are in conformity with observed data. The procedure described here can be used for research and forecasting the health status of the human organism in general.
