Ameloblastic fibrodentinoma is a rare, benign, mixed odontogenic tumor composed of odontogenic epithelium, immature connective tissue and is characterized by the formation of dysplastic dentin. An incidence of 0.1% is reported for this benign odontogenic tumor which indicates the rarity of this lesion. In the present review, a case of ameloblastic fibrodentinoma of the mandible in an african male is presented which was managed by surgical enucleation of the lesion along with the removal of impacted tooth associated with it.
