In brief: Not the routine ones

Going to the dentist does not affect most lab test results.
People with existing heart valve lesion are at risk for infection in the heart. If you have any heart disease you should tell your dentists so that preventive medication may be administered.

In brief: Not directly

If a dentist prescribed a pain reliever for relief of pain, Codeine can show in a blood test.
Get a note from your dentist to explain that some narcotic was prescribed if you need to explain a blood test.
