One of the most known alternative gravitational theories is Brans-Dicke (BD) theory. The theory offers a new approach by taking a scalar field ϕ instead of Newton’s gravitational constant G. Solutions of the theory are under consideration and results are discussed in many papers. Stationary, axially symmetric solutions become important because gravitational field of celestial objects can be described by such solutions. Since obtaining exact solutions of BD is not an easy task, some solution-generating techniques are proposed. In this context, some solutions of Einstein general relativity, such as black hole or wormhole solutions, are discussed in BD theory. Indeed, black hole solutions in BD theory are not fully understood yet. Old and new such solutions and their analysis will be reviewed in this chapter.
