Dear Doctors: How to Write Your Name Your Signature
—-#1) For official correspondence the official form of your name includes the post-nominals for your degree:
—-—-(Full Name), (Post nominals for your degree)
——-——Cynthia Brodart, D.V.M.
————-John Smith, C.P.A.
————-John Smith, Ph.D.

Use this on checks, signage at our office, in professional listings – anything relating to your professional practice. This is also the form others use when they write to you at the office or write your name when they make out a check to you.
—-#2) The social form of your name used on social correspondence – e.g., when you are listed as the host, bride or groom on a wedding invitation or others use when they send you a personal card – is:
—-—-Dr. (Full Name)
——-—-Dr. Cynthia Brodart
——-—-Dr. Kevin Millard
——-—-Mr. John Smith

Doctors present the official form of their name to the public: (Full Name) (Pertinent post-nominals for the service offered). The social form of their name does not include their degree: Dr. (Full Name). In both official and social salutations and conversations patients use Dr. (Name).
