Dentists should not be called "docs'

Discussion in 'Clinical Rotations' started by nobadwords, May 24, 2002.

  1. First off, this has totally been one of those subjects that has pist me off.

    I personally think that this "doc" calling to anyone in a white coat is ridiculous! Dentists arent docs, even in the traditional sense. An MD, wherever, you go...be it the US, Caribbean, whatever you are an MD in the traditional sense. This nonsense of having dentists being called dentists is simply something that they themselves started to please their egos.

    I just cant stand these dentist punks who in undergrad think their the sh&t. These guys were pulling barely 3.0 and got into these dental schools. What the heck! I mean the whole profession is a joke. I dont even think its a profession, all they do is clean teeth. EVeryone knows that no one goes to college saying "i want to be a dentist". Its just one of those things that ppl who cant hack it up to be an MD resorts to.
