Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) and Doctor of Dental Medicine (D.M.D.) have no differences. These are only indications of the degree awarded upon graduation from their respective dental school. Dentists with either degree have the same education.
Universities have the prerogative to determine what degree is awarded. Both degrees use the same curriculum requirements set by the American Dental Association’s Commission on Dental Accreditation.
Generally, three or more years of undergraduate education plus four years of dental school are required to graduate and become a dentist. Additional post-graduate training is required to become a dental specialist, such as an orthodontist, periodontist or oral and maxillofacial surgeon.
Visiting the Dentist
At a dental visit, you are being examined by a doctor of oral health capable of diagnosing and treating conditions that range from routine to extremely complex. NYSDA and the American Dental Association believe that understanding the skill and knowledge your dentist must possess, their delivery of health care, and the degree to which dental disease is almost entirely preventable are essential to ensuring more Americans enjoy lifelong dental health.
Dental x-ray examinations provide valuable information for Dr. Perry. Even if you aren’t in any pain or distress, x-rays can show a dentist what is happening beneath the surface of your teeth and gums. If you have questions about your x-ray exams, be sure to talk with Dr. Perry about any concerns.
The amount of radiation that we are exposed to by dental x-rays is very, very small. Especially in comparison to the daily amounts of natural radiation we are exposed to, there isn’t much concern surrounding dental x-rays. Paired with protective aprons and guards, your dental x-rays are a safe and effective way to look closely at your oral health. Dr. Perry uses digital dental radiography from carestream dental.
