Synonyms of "Dentist" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between I don’t like going to the dentist. and I don’t like going to a dentist. and And, are the both sentences used by the native speakers ? ?
A: in fact, this works with other nouns too like “a person” and “the person”
For example:
A person at the back shouted (someone in the back)
The person at the back shouted (that specific person at the back, identifiable)
Q: What is the difference between I went to the dentist a week earlier. and I had been to the dentist a week earlier. ?
A: The first is the simple past tense, whilst the second is the pluperfect past. You use the pluperfect to say that something has occurred before another thing in the past. (The phrase which gives this information is then put in the perfect or simple past tense.)

eg. "I had been to the dentist a week earlier (pluperfect) than I ate that lunch (simple past)."

Whereas "I went to the dentist a week earlier" is fine on its own as a sentence in the simple past.

As a note, in informal spoken language use, I'm not sure many people would mind you not using the pluperfect properly, but I wouldn't count on it in a test.
Q: What is the difference between He is at the dentist. and He is in the dental clinic. ?
A: 同じ意味です
Q: What is the difference between The dentist said I needed to have a tooth pulled. and The dentist said I needed to pull a tooth. ?
A: both sentences will be understood, but the first one is more appropriate in this case

"The dentist said I needed to have a tooth pulled"
-someone else (the dentist) will pull out the tooth for you.

"The dentist said I needed to pull a tooth"
-may sound like you will pull your own tooth out.
Q: What is the difference between I’m at the dentist and I’m in the dentist ?
A: At the dentist could mean you are outside like in the parking lot. In the dentist means you are inside the building.

Corrected and more natural sounding: "I went to the nearby dentist today.

I was glad to hear that and afterward I went shopping before returning home at 9pm."
