What is DMD?

f you're looking to find a dentist you may notice that while most are listed with a 'DDS', some may be listed as 'DMD'.

They both mean the same thing:
  • DDS (Doctor of Dental Surgery) and
  • DMD (Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry or Doctor of Dental Medicine) are the same degrees.

Dentists who have a DMD or DDS have the same education. It's up to the universities to determine what degree is awarded, but both degrees use the same curriculum requirements.
