    if you look in the dental forum, there are a bunch of answers to FAQs like yours:

    i didn't click on any of the links posted, but they probably say something very similar (perhaps even in more detail) than this.

    Normally I don't close threads until it is absolutely necessary, but this topic has been beat to a bloody pulp so many times before that I see no reason to let it happen again. A quick search will yield many, many threads dedicated to this eternal question. As others have pointed out, the difference is only in the letters; there's no special training in one versus the other, there is no truth whatsoever that one can only do certrain procedures, and so on. Both spell "dentist". Closing.
