It's used both ways: "El Dentista" for a male dentist, "La Dentista"
for a female dentist.
On the other hand, "Doctor", can have male and female usage:
But, there's other words, like "radio", which seems male but it's
actually a female subject: "La radio".
And also "agua" which seems female, but it's a male subject: "el agua".
