    Abstract
    Dental fluorosis is the most prevalent form of fluorosis in India affecting millions of people all over the country. As estrogen receptor 1 , collagen type 1 alpha 2 , bone γ-carboxyglutamic acid protein , secreted protein acidic and cysteine-rich , vitamin D receptor , and matrix metallopeptidase 2 genes play critical roles in bone metabolism, bone formation, mineral metabolism, and mineralization, variants in these genes could influence susceptibility to DF. The present study was aimed at evaluating the association between 15 single-nucleotide polymorphisms in the six candidate...
