Hi! I'd like to ask for your help. I'll be very much obliged. :) I'm just not sure what tenses I have to use. One must use the right form of the verb in brackets.
Yesterday I came to my dentist. I was waiting for him in the reception. When his secretary came, she had offered me to read a magazine. I refused as I was waiting for him for fifteen minutes and have read all the magazines. Are there any mistakes?

Welcome to the forums.

There were no brackets.

Yesterday I came [correct tense; wrong verb] to my dentist. I was waiting [wrong tense - simple past] for him in the reception. When his secretary came, she had offered me to read a magazine[...offered me a magazine to read.]. I refused as I was waiting [wrong tense] for him for fifteen minutes and have read [wrong tense]all the magazines.
