  • moroka -

    a doctor is usually someone in the medical profession, who has received the proper education and license to practice.

    however, a doctor in general is someone who has received a "doctor's degree" from a university.

    A PhD is awarded in a variety of disciplines to someone who has written a dissertation and generally added to the accumulated knowledge in the field, or shed new insights into that knowledge.

    A DDS is awarded to one qualified in dentistry
