One of the most frequently asked questions that we hear is "What is the difference between the degrees of D.D.S. and D.M.D.?" The answer is that they are educationally the same. DDS is the abbreviation for Doctor of Dental Surgery, DMD is the abbreviation for Doctor of Dental Medicine. It only depends upon which institution granted the degree in dentistry.
