    Dentists hold the right to call themselves Dr .... Do you agree that they should use this title before their name?

    I don't believe that anyone without an academic doctorate should use the title.

    I'm British so I don't even know what a dentist is.




    Americans actually believe this.

    It's certainly a relevant and controversial subject
    I expect the use of the term doctor will soon be outlawed and restricted to medical graduates and PhD holders only, so call yourself Doctor whilst you still can!

    I don't really say anything to address him. I find whenever he ever talks to me/ask me question's it's when he's working on my mouth and I can't talk.

    He insists on calling me Stace so I call him by his first name.

    He doesn't mind.

    Unless they have a doctorate, I don't.

    I call mine 'Ms' as that's how she introduced herself to me.
