The American Medical Association and the College of American Pathologists (CAP) are aware that the General Dental Council (GDC) has, since 1995, allowed its members to use the title "Dr." so long as it is made clear that this is merely a courtesy title and no inference is made about the individual's actual medical credentials.
In the United Kingdom, are dentists addressed as "Dr." or "Mr."?
Keep in mind that not every person using the title "Dr." is a medical doctor; for example, a Dentist Kings Norton or someone with a PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) degree may use the title "Dr."
Can dentists safely utilise Dr.
Ans. And, sure, of course! Like medical doctors, dentists have a terminal degree or doctorate. To get their MD degrees, dentists also spent five years in medical school.
