Abstract: Through a local dental clinic 32 exfoliated human teeth samples related to 32 persons of a phosphatic fertilizer plant environment were collected from two categories, workers of the plant, and non-workers but residents of the plant township area. For comparative study, seven exfoliated teeth samples from uncontaminated subjects were also collected. Other environmental receptors like, air, water and soil samples of the study were also analyzed for fluoride content. Plant workers have shown a higher presence of fluoride in their exfoliated teeth compared to non-worker and uncontaminated category. Levels of fluoride content were found to be: worker category, 248-8891; non-worker category, 259-4852; and, uncontaminated category, 35-157 g/g of dry weight of teeth samples.
