Chainsaw Dental Sculpture

The dentist office no longer exists. All that's left is an empty lot.

Giant Wooden Dental Sculpture

On Main St. (County Rt.553) across from the firehouse and the Telford Inn in downtown Mantua, NJ is Howard Cetel, DDS's dental office, with a giant sculpture of a tooth, toothbrush and dental mirror on the front lawn. It appears to be chainsaw-carved. and it was definitely a tree in a former life. The carving stands about 12 ft. tall and has been there several years.
