    I am quite sure there is no difference. Just a matter of semantics.

    Same degree. Some schools award DMD others DDS. All three Boston area schools award DMD. I think most schools award DDS. It's just a different name for the same degree.

    I believe it was stated earlier in another thread that DMD stands for:

    "Driver, More Dom PĂ©rignon"
