I've never heard of a dog licking his teeth, but when they growl and bark yes that's definately domiant behaviour. If he starts licking you then yes that's dominant behaviour. I have the same issue with my pug/lab mix. Just keep working at it, it just seems he is stubborn like my pup.

Hopefully my info will work, I have trained dogs since I was a little girl myself. Those are the methods I have done with my dogs beforehand and it worked, so possibly it may work, possibly not, all you need is persistence.
I just wanted to correct that statement - barking and growling does not mean a dog is displaying dominance.
