What is the difference between dmd and dds?

None. I am not a dentist but as far as i know, the dmd and dds degrees are equivalent. Both are dentists. I believe it is similar to the fact that there are two degrees for doctors, M.D. And D.O.
None. Different schools deliver either a doctor of dental medicine degree or doctor of dental surgery degree. Both are virtually the same. Only the institutions think otherwise.
