Yes (see Bionet.Cellbio).  They are just called petri dishes.  The others
are referred to as tissue culture dishes and the plastic is treated
differently to encourage adherent cells to stick to the surface.  The
petri dishes that I use in my lab are 60 mm dishes from Falcon (#1007). 
They also come in 100mm but I don't have the product number for those.
