    There is absolutely no difference between the two degrees.

    I thought DMD's had additional schooling beyond DDS's. Seems like this was discussed in another post in the dental forum about 1 to 2 months ago.

    Again they are exactly the same degree. Both require 4 years of dental school. There is absolutely no difference in the training of both degrees. The only difference is in the letters
