    Well, it is only a DMD program, which are known to be clinically weak.

    Well...in the last 2 years, NSU graduates have achieved a 100 % and 98 % pass rate respectively on The Florida dental licensure exam...I would be shocked to hear of any other dental school in the country doing better.

    Relax - The only difference is one letter. It's not determined by curriculum but rather what the schools wants to call it.

    :beat: +pissed+ Now, now, guys, DMD and DDS are equivalent degrees. They provide the same clinical exposures. Seriously, all of you, you should do a SEARCH first.

    This is the most annoying thing on SDN, aside from why should I go for a DDS and not an MD. . . . SEriousssly. +pissed+ :beat:

    actually you guys, a DMD can legally not pay taxes, whereas a DDS has to pay regular taxes times 2 cuz DMD's don't pay any taxes. however, a DDS gets a whole sheet of scratch and sniff stickers at graduation for free!

    This guy is full of it. Actually "DDS" is supposed to be the weak link because it stands for "Doesn't Do Sh!t"
