    Why not "Dr. and Mr. Smith..." for example? You could also try "Mr. and Dr. Smith..." or if you want to be traditional it would have to be "Mr. and Mrs. Smith..."

    Re: salutations

    Mr and Dr xxxx is the accepted formal usage.

    If [as with my brother and sister-in-law] the wife retains her maiden name professionally, it could also be "Mr xxxx and Dr yyyy".
