Does a dishwasher require a dedicated circuit?

Because of the power it needs, a dishwasher should have its own circuit, separate from the two individual appliance circuits that are positioned above your countertop. Is that correct? Dishwashers use either 115- or 120-volt power. 125-volt, 15-amp circuit is what the dishwasher circuit should be.
