What degree would you get after a dental residency? Would it be a masters since most residencies are 2-3 years... the same length as a traditional masters? Or do you just get board certified in X field dentistry?

Pretty sure you just get to ethically call yourself a specialist. I don't think there is an actual degree, but I could be wrong.

There are other degree seeking programs available to post graduate dentists though.

you either get a certificate, masters, phd, or MD (depending on which os program)
Cool. Between the masters, certificate, and phD.... does that depend on the speciality, or are all applicable for each residency(i.e. The degree depends on the program)?

All residencies will grant you a certificate of some sort, ortho/perio/pros/endo may grant you a master's depending on length of program (typically 3 years vs 2 years no master's), and 6 year omfs programs grant you the MD (Case is the 5 year MD exception).
