Are you a doctor after you defend your dissertation?

The candidate must still defend the dissertation, and the dissertation must be approved by the university faculty.

You pretty much give an outline of your thesis, what you’ve done, and what you have remaining to do. If your committee agrees, then you schedule your defense and go on with it.
