Introduction: Molar incisor hypomineralisation (MIH) is currently the most prevalent of developmental defects of enamel among children. Molar incisal hypomineralisation presents itself as a serious clinical dilemma for pediatric dentists and clinical practitioners. It is a global endemic. However, its prevalence in India remains uncertain to find prevalence and pattern of MIH in Delhi Region. Material and Methods: A total of 649 children aged between 7 and 10 years were randomly selected from various schools in Delhi National Capital Region (NCR). The teeth were examined moist under natural light. The developmental defects of enamel were graded using the modified European Academy of Pediatric Dentistry judgment Criteria given by Ghanim et al. 2015. Results: A total of 97 subjects presented with MIH of 649 subjects examined. MIH presented with a prevalence of 15%. Creamy white opacities were the most common of defects present, followed by yellowish-brown opacities. Discussion and Conclusion: The prevalence of MIH in the Delhi NCR region is 15%.
