Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between DDS and DMD?

DDS stands for Doctor of Dental Surgery, and DMD stands for Doctor of Dental Medicine or Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry. While the titles are different, the degrees are actually the same, and both DMD and DDS dentists graduated from accredited dental schools. Students seeking DDS and DMD degrees are required to follow the same educational curriculums.

Is a dentist a doctor?

A dentist with a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree or a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree is considered a doctor in his or her field, but not considered a medical doctor or physician. DMD and DDS dentists are licensed to perform surgical procedures and prescribe medications.

Do dentists go to med school?

Dentists don't go to medical school to obtain their dental credentials. They typically complete four-year undergraduate programs then move on to dental school. The curriculum is similar in medical and dental schools for the first two years of the program, and dentists who plan on practicing oral surgery can get MD degrees through medical-integrated dental programs.
