It is the same for male and female in Turkish. "Dişçi" means dentist in Turkish for both female and male and "m" is the possessive suffix.

Benim Dişçim


Explanation:

"Benim Dişçim" or shortly "Dişçim".
In respect of Gramarical structure, Turkis is a member of a language group including only a few languages in the world such as Hungarian. For that reason Grammarical rules of Turkish is different than some european languages such as English, French, German, etc.
In accordance with Turkish Grammar, affixes can mean a lot of instruments of a sentence and make them unnecessary. I this phase: BENİM disciM.
The first word with capital letters and the suffix with the capital letter at the end of the phrase do same mean. For that reason the full verioun is used when the possessive pronom has a strong mean in the phrase. Otherwise the posessive becomes a short suffix at the end of the noun.No familin or masculin problems are there in Turkish Grammer. Same way regardles of male or female. If you have more information:

dişçim


Explanation:
The exact translation would be; "diş hekimim" or "diş doktorum". But native speakers would use it in the first proposed way; "dişçim". The second and third propoals may be used according to the text, especially in a formal text.

This is a turkish origin word derived from the word "diş" and in turkish, words do not change according to the gender of the person they are used for. Neither are they classified as feminin and masculin.
