What does it mean when you dream about a dentist?

Owning to childhood associations, dentists in dreams often symbolize anxiety and fear of pain. They represent the principle of inflicting pain “for your own good.” The primary activity of dentistry is drilling and removing decayed matter, and replacing it with new dental material an activity that, in a dream, may be a metaphor for other situations in one’s life.
