The article describes a case of surgical management of compound odontoma in a one-year-old beagle. Upon presentation, the dog had a one-month history of a right rostral maxillary mass, but the overall health of the patient was excellent. Intraoral dental radiographs revealed numerous radiodense structures within the borders of the tumor, suggestive of elemental tooth structures, or denticles.
