hammaslääkärini


Explanation:
The word dentist is gender neutral. The ending "ni" indicates my possession; a dentist would be translated as "hammaslääkäri".

minun hammaslääkärini


Explanation:
minun = my
hammas = tooth
lääkäri = doctor, physician
-ni = possessive suffix for 'minun'
'minun' is optional in most cases:
Hammaslääkärini sanoi, että... My dentist said that...
Minun hammaslääkärini on parempi kuin sinun. My dentist is better than yours.
