Should you call a dentist a doctor?

After completing their formal education, a dentist receives a type of medical degree. In fact, a dentist is known as a doctor specializing in oral health who has earned a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree or a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree. A suitable doctor is one who has a doctorate, a doctorate, a doctor, a DDS. For someone else to be called Dr.

is to denigrate the achievement of a doctorate or similar and must be explained to people so that they understand the difference. Just as you would address your doctor as: “Dr. Smith,” your dentist should be called Dr. Cohen.

In the eyes of many, including insurance companies, dentistry is separate from the field of medicine, even though dentists are essentially doctors with different training. As a result, x-rays and preventive dental care are not typically covered by standard health insurance plans and require a separate dental plan to cover oral care.
