What do you consider a real doctor? I think real doctors are those with PhD's. A medical doctor is a physician to me. If an MD can call themselves a doctor, certainly a DDS can.

A good chiropractor is hardcore, certainly higher up than a GP. They actually have to work on cadavers in chiropractor school. Not to mention the fact that they make me feel like a million bucks. There is nothing wrong with being a Dentist. Did you know that dentists are most likely to be named "Dennis"?
