I believe it’s supposed to be “Dr. Pengoala, DMA.” It gives you your proper title, as well as indicates what degree you have (for people who know).

My business cards have my companies logo and then my name, title, phone number, address, fax number, email address and our website.

Well you could always use this…

Sorry, couldn’t resist! 😛

I would include your name, degree, business name (if any), phone number and email, and then the location you teach lessons from. Also, do you have a website? I’d include that too.

@pengoala:  I really like those! Would you get different back designs or just one?

@vorpalette:  Not to dispute with you on this, but I would double-check. My sister graduated from optometry school a couple of years ago, and she made a point of correcting my dad when he was overdoing it. She said you’re supposed to use either “Dr. (Name)” or “(Name), OD”, but it’s not correct to double up on the credentials and put “Dr. (Name), OD”.

I don’t know if it’s different for medical vs. academic doctorates, but if you’re concerned about the correctness of it, I would double check.

@pengoala:  Umm … you know, I don’t, and I really should, because I am within a year of finishing a Ph.D. and so it won’t be too long before this question is relevant to me as well!

Maybe start by contacting the secretary in the department where you studied? Secretaries know everything! They are probably up on the finer points of academic protocol – or at least they would know how to find out. You could also check with some of your former professors … or maybe if you still have your graduation program, look at that? I know those are very formal, and universities take pains to get it right on those occasions … hope that helps!

No, you shouldn’t do “Dr.” and the “DMA”.  It’s redundant.  Just pick one.  I’d go with DMA since that’s the important part for your job.

ETA:  I have a Ph.D. and use “Beckster, Ph.D.”
