    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****

    Good morning, Chang.

    (1) I think it would be helpful if you said:

    Maria has an appointment at the dentist's office tomorrow.

    (a) Many native speakers shorten that to:

    at the dentist's / at the dentist

    (2) I think that many native speakers are also comfortable with

    an appointment WITH the dentist.

    (3) I would not use "to."

    Have a nice day!
