The hybrid applications are needed in dental research because the result of their operation could be predicted by both modeling of an oral truct and more than two kind of physical simulations. However, it takes long time to perform the hybrid applications, cost a lot of money and needs some experience to deal with them. This paper proposes a new execution procedure of two applications which can reduce the implementation time by considering parallel efficiency of those applications. It can determine which attitude should be taken, sequential or separate execution of two different applications related with each other. Following the execution procedure, the dental hybrid application was performed. As a result of that, desirable pairs of the number of CPUs allocated to each simulation could be found. This means that the adequate procedure should be considered before execution of the hybrid applications, in order to play a compute power producer for dental clinics and hospitals.
