Dreaming of a dentist, since the emphasis is on the mouth, may signify that we are having difficulty in articulating our own Spiritual truth - that in which we believe. Because of its association with pain, a visit to the dentist in dreams may highlight fears or hurt that we have hidden. A dentist may signify that a particular type of healing is appropriate, such as the removal of 'decaying' information. In everyday life the development of teeth is thought to be a step towards speech and, therefore, correct communication. A dentist in dreams suggests that a degree of care is needed in what we are saying to others.
