In brief: One letter

Different schools grant different degrees upon their graduates.
The dds and dmd degrees are identical and recognized as such by all state licensing boards.

In brief: DDS=DMD

They both mean the same thing.
Some dental schools grant a D.D.S. (Doctor of Dental Surgery) degree while others prefer the D.M.D. (Doctor of Dental Medicine) degree instead. The training the dentists receive is the same but the name of the degree is different.
