Doctor
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The title Doctor (abbreviated Dr.) is used for anyone who holds a doctorate and also, in certain countries, for members of certain professions whether or not the academic qualification of doctorate is held.

In the United Kingdom, Australia, the United States and many other countries physicians are almost exclusively referred to as "doctors".

As an example of inverted snobbery, in the UK surgeons are referred to as mister (unless they really do have a doctorate).

In South Africa and Australia dentists and vetinarians are referred to as doctor.

The list of professions and the countries in which their non-doctorate members are commonly referred to as doctors is far from complete.
