A shallow rabbet cut wide enough to remove the chip out would create a recess for a thin inlay strip glued in place. The inlay strip could remain proud of the surface or flushed up. The inlay strip could be of the same wood or a contrasting wood as an accent. If the inlay strip is a contrasting wood, both faces that form the corner could get the same treatment, adding another layer of detail to the project.

Of course, this fix would render the dovetail joint invisible. Also I am not sure whether the inlay strip would crack over time, though if thin and narrow enough I doubt it would.
