Abstract Oral diseases such as tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss can significantly affect the overall health of the individual. Tooth decay is a polymicrobial disease in which nutrition, microbial infection and host response play an important role. Enterococcus faecalis is one of these bacterial agents. Medicinal plants have fewer side effects compared to chemical drugs. Those have been easy to access from the past and have been used as drugs in the treatment of various diseases. This natural source has effective ingredients which cure diseases. The efforts in this reviewing study were on reporting anti-Enterococcusfaecalis medicinal plants. Searching for articles in this reviewing study were done with words such as Enterococcusfaecalis, Medicinal plants, dental diseases and phytotherapy. Search was done from databases such as Scopus, ISC, SID, Magiran and some other databases. Accordingly, 13 medical plants which are effective on Streptococcus faecalis are used.
