Aim and objective: The aim and objective of this paper is to report a combination of various dental anomalies in a healthy pediatric patient. Background: A combination of dental anomalies was reported, particularly in patients with syndromes or chromosomal abnormality. Very few cases of multiple defects have been described in patients with no generalized abnormality. Case description: This article reports the case of a 10-year-old female healthy patient who was found to have multiple dental anomalies which include: (1) bilateral congenitally missing 2nd premolar, (2) bilateral peg laterals, (3) an abnormal sequence of eruption in the lower right side, and (4) delayed eruption of lower left canine. Conclusion: Dental anomalies have multiple effect on the occlusion as well as on the esthetic. Early diagnosis and intervention and collaboration between the different subspecialty are needed. Clinical significance: Pedodontics, orthodontic, restorative, and prosthodontic consultation was taken for the best future proposed treatment that ranges between orthodontics space closure, implants, and esthetic treatment for the peg laterals.
