True story: I have worked as an assistant for quite a long time now. The other day a woman said that she chose my Dr. over another one was because he has a DMD and the other had a DDS. Out of curiosity I asked her why she thought one was better. Her reply: I just want to go to a dentist that can write me a RX!!! I was just dying! The reason I was dying is because this was the THIRD time I have heard this. Wow! I can't believe this isn't made more clear out there in the public. Oh well. I am just glad I will have a DMD .
