Streptococcus intermedius is a Gram-positive, obligately anaerobic, nonsporeforming, and nonmotile cocci. S. intermedius is a member of oral flora and is endodontic infection, respiratory infections, infective endocarditis, brain abscess, and liver abscess. Streptococcus intermedius ChDC B718 (= KCOM 1545) was isolated from a human pulpitis lesion. Here, we present the complete genome sequence of S. intermedius ChDC B718.
