Dinosaurs were a group of reptilian organisms that inhabited the Earth from 230 to 65 million years ago. The group went extinct at the end of that period, possibly due to a meteorite impact in the Gulf of Mexico. (ENT: "Azati Prime")
Doctor Noonian Soong kept several dinosaur models, including a model skeleton of a Triceratops and a large Tyrannosaurus rex skull, in his laboratory on Terlina III. After he died in early 2367, Data gave the model dinosaurs to the brothers Jake and Willie Potts. (TNG: "Brothers")
The hadrosaur lived in the Cretaceous period. It was the most highly evolved cold-blooded organism to develop from the Eryops and is believed to have vanished when a mass extinction occurred at the end of the Cretaceous. The hadrosaur is most likely a direct evolutionary predecessor of the Voth. (VOY: "Distant Origin")
The skeletons of two prehistoric animals (one definitely a dinosaur, the other most likely a ground sloth) were on display in the Voyager section of the Kyrian Museum of Heritage. A pterodactyl in flight was also on display, hanging from the ceiling. (VOY: "Living Witness")

The novel First Frontier has an alternate take on the dinosaurs, that Troodon was evolving into a sentient species. They were rescued from extinction by the Preservers and became a species known as Clan Ru. They attempted to alter time, using the Guardian of Forever to allow their species to remain on Earth. However, in altered timeline, they repeatedly destroyed themselves in atomic warfare. Ultimately, Captain Kirk and the crew of the Enterprise managed to reset the timeline and things occurred as they had before the Clan Ru's tampering.
