Globidens ("Globe teeth") is an extinct genus of mosasaur lizard.
Globidens alabamaensis was the first species of Globidens described, in a publication by Charles W. Gilmore (1912). It is used as the type specimen for Globidens.
Globidens belongs to the family Mosasauridae, which consists of several genera of predatory marine reptiles prevalent during the Late Cretaceous. Specimens of Globidens have been discovered in North America and parts of Africa and Asia (Indonesia). Among mosasaurs, Globidens is probably most well known for its highly rounded, globe-like teeth.
