Dentist Symbol

The standard symbol for dentistry. Based on the symbol of the greek god, Ascepius, it consists of a snake wrapped around a physicians staff, a series of leaves and berries, all contained within the greek symbols Delta for Dentistry and Omicron for odont, or tooth. Not pictured here due to constraints of cutting the decal, typically there are 32 leaves and 20 berries symbolizing the 32 adult teeth and 20 baby teeth of a typical person.

A dentist, also known as a dental surgeon, is a surgeon who specializes in dentistry, the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases and conditions of the oral cavity. The dentist's supporting team aids in providing oral health services. The dental team includes dental assistants, dental hygienists, dental technicians, and, in some states, dental therapists.
