(The title of “Doctor” should be spelled out.  However, if the name is unusually long, it is acceptable to abbreviate – Dr.).  According to social etiquette, “Doctor” is a title used for both medical doctors or ministers.  Please note: individuals who have earned a Ph.D are not generally noted in social addressing as “Doctor”.  This title for them is used in academic settings.
