trazobone  Strep mitis is part of the viridans group of streptococci, most commonly found in throat, nasopharynx, mouth. Gram + facultative anaerobe, catalase (-) and alpha hemolytic +2  
whk123  Also, the image gives a clue (also present in FA strep pneumo section) that it belongs to strep family, strep pneumo ruled out because it is beta-hemolytic so strep mitis is left which eventually is alpha-hemolytic +1  
trazobone  Wait no strep pneumo is also alpha hemolytic. I think you meant to type staph aureus +  
whk123  OMG, where the heck my one line went- EDIT: strep pneumo ruled out because it is not associated with heart issues and dental procedure thing present in the scenario, staph aureus ruled out because it is beta-hemolytic so... Thanks trazobone for bringing this to attention +1  

Strep mutans (of Strep Viridans group) causes dental caries "cavities"
