daktari yangu wa meno


Explanation:
daktari = doctor

-angu = my (the prefix "y-" indicates that "daktari" is an "n-class noun")

-a = of (the prefix "w-" indicates that "daktari" is a human being. Since "daktari" belongs to the n-class, "ya" instead of "wa" would also be possible)

meno = teeth, the plural of "jino"
