Not Necessarily. A dmd is a dental degree and can refer to any general dentist or dental specialist. An oral surgeon has completed a specialty program (additional training beyond the dds/dmd degree). Some oral surgeons also have md degrees which make them dmd md or dds md.
DMD. The degree of "DMD" simply means that person has graduated from dental school. It is no different than having a "DDS." An oral and maxillofacial surgeon has additional training beyond a DMD or DDS, and some oral and maxillofacial surgeons are conferred a medical degree (MD) as well. Hope that helps.
DMD oral surgeon. A dmd is a dentist. A dds is a dentist. They are both degrees conferred when you graduate from dental school. Some schools confer one or the other, although most schools now confer a dmd. Since an oral surgeon is a dentist, he would have a dmd degree.
