    Ok, I couldn't resist being the first one to open this forum. Anyway:
    A question came up in another forum. What is the difference between DMD and DDS?

    If I remember correctly when you get a DDS then an MD = DMD. Some schools offer a join program that leads you directly too DMD.

    Here is a quote from a book I have on medical and dental schools under the dentistry section. "The D.M.D. and the D.D.S. degrees are equivalent degrees that are awarded to dental students upon completion of the same types of programs." Some dental schools award one, some award the other.
