Hi Everyone... I have a question... I am a dentist who has been practicing a year and a half... I was married in May and was kinda on the fence about changing my last name... I would like to keep my last name professionally ...it would mean a lot to my parents... plus my license and diploma have my last name... but would like use my husbands name for personal things... How does this work? I remember when I applied 4 my DEA number it states ur last name HAS to match ur Social security card... Would I have to hyphenate my name? Then does my Rx pad have to say both names too? And then what happens with kids? Sorry... I have no idea what to do!! Any advice out there? Thanks!
