A compound odontoma is the most common form of odontogenic odontomas and is typically found in the maxillary anterior region. This paper describes a case diagnosed in a 41 year old healthy male patient. Two treatment options were presented to the patient including a referral to an oral and maxillofacial surgeon for an evaluation or periodic monitoring of the odontoma.
