Is it doctor or doctor's appointment?

In the phrase “doctor's appointment,” the noun “doctor” is being used genitively to describe the type of appointment, while in “doctor appointment,” the noun is being used attributively (that is, adjectivally) to do the same thing.

Keeping this in consideration, is it dentist appointment or dentist's appointment?

To further make my case, you never say that you have a dentist's appointment. You probably say that you have a dental appointment or a dentist appointment instead. Do the same with the doctor; it's a medical appointment or doctor appointment.

Secondly, does doctor's office have an apostrophe?

For example, “the doctor's office” indicates that the office belongs to one doctor. Placing the apostrophe after the s with a plural noun, “the doctors' office,” shows that the office belongs to more than one doctor. Remember, the apostrophe indicates that the noun is possessive, not plural.

What do they do at dentist appointments?

During a dental exam, the dentist or hygienist will:
  • Evaluate your overall health and oral hygiene.
  • Evaluate your risk of tooth decay, root decay, and gum or bone disease.
  • Evaluate your need for tooth restoration or replacement.
  • Check your bite and jaw for problems.
  • Remove stains or deposits on your teeth.
