If so, it should equal "one hundren and six score", but both seem a bit odd.

Or just "eleven score."

I would think that, if dozen was used, it would be the highest denomination (and similarly for score.) So "one hundred and ten dozen" should probably be "eighteen dozen and four."

Update: Then again, in deciding on what to accept as input, you should probably be liberal as possible and accept even bizarre things like "one thousand one hundred twenty score eight dozen and four" for 1500.
