German term or phrase: DOK-Horizontalebene
The term DOK-Horizontalebene appears in a figure of a dental article,
preceded by the term Frontzahngewoelbe. I am having trouble with the abbreviation DOK. The figure illustrates different
directions of tooth movement; "Der komplette Funktionsraum im
Frontzahbereich".

occlusal plane


Explanation:
According to Herbert Bucksch's dictionary on dental medicine, the "Horizontalebene" is also called "Okklusionsebene"; the proper translation is "occlusal plane".

DOK, apparently, stands for "Deutsche Ortskrankenkasse" (roughly, German General Sick Fund").

I hope this helps. I would have to have more of a context to see whether or not my interpretation of DOK applies here.
