I Have A Problem With Calling With dominating Hands Like AK,Aq,Aj,Kq,Etc. But Hate When It's A Dry Board And I Have To Call Or Fold Knowing To Myself That MY Hand Is Still Ahead. Should I Play These Hands Differently?

I would advice play differently with different opponents if they loose players it likely that dry board might hit them more often , if they nitty if you think you still ahead you can call of 1 bet and fold to 2nd or just gettin pre if you think they would call with worse or you still will be flipping. I usually 3b even w ace high or bottom pair when i feel im ahead of their bluffing range ,but i don't recommend that lol. Sometimes you trust yo guts sometimes you wait for better spots, sometimes you can't really be scared to make wrong decisions
in order to win.

You'll be better off posting hand histories for folks to discuss rather than asking about generalities. Show us a hand example demonstrating the situation you're trying to describe.
However, your comment seems illogical. If you know your hand is best, then you must focus on the best line to get chips in and never fold. What makes you say you have to call or fold there?
