Status: de facto

A place where a professional dental surgeon ("dentist") who specializes in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases and conditions on oral care is stationed.

How to map

If the extent of the dentist facility is uncertain, use the tag amenity=dentist on a node node placed around where the facility is. If the dentist is the sole occupier of a building, with no grounds like a dedicated carpark then use the amenity=dentist on a closed way (area) area drawn around the perimeter of the building. If the dentist facility occupies grounds including a building, carpark, etc. then tag on closed way (area) around the whole grounds, potentially with a building=* way inside.
