This tumor are generally found at mandible, only 7 % appears at maxilla and it may develop asymmetrical face appearance. Surgical management are enucleation, marginal or partial resection, or composite resection. This article reported a management of unusual occurrence of ossifying fibroma at the anterior of maxilla. A 20 years old male patient came with complaint of a gradual growth on his palate since 1 year before admission. Histopathology examination showed a calcifying fibroma. The patient treated with partial resection and placement of surgical obturator. 5 months follow up revealed no recurrence. Aggressive treatment of ossifying fibroma found to be effective but recurrence is unpredictable, therefore follow-up observation should be done over a long period of time.
