What is the difference between a DMD and a DDS?
Really there is no difference between a DMD and DDS. US dental schools confer on their graduates either a DMD or DDS degree. These degrees indicate no particular difference in training and dentists with these degrees , have identical licenses and can treat the same dental conditions. Their abilities to write prescriptions are identical. DMD stands for Doctor of Medical Dentistry and DDS stands for Doctor of Dental Surgery.
