In brief: Nothing really.
Dds is doctor of dental surgery and dmd is doctor of dental medicine.
There is no real difference, just depends on where a dentist graduates from.

In brief: Same, both Dentists
Dds stands for doctor of dental surgery, and dmd stands for doctor of dental medicine.
All graduates from an accredited us dental school will have one degree or the other depending on the school of graduation. Historically, before dental education was regulated, there were slight differences between the two degrees. Currently, the degrees are equivalent bearing equal rights and privileges.
