Dr. Amini has taken care of 7 cavities, one root canal, two crowns, and has been guiding me through TMD. She started out as a dental review last year for the Army Reserves but I was impressed in her yearly review this year and her ability to be agressive in taking care of issues now to reduce the severity later. I am greatful that I landed in her chair through the Reserves.

Dentists - A dentist is a person qualified by a doctorate in dental surgery (D.D.S.) or dental medicine (D.M.D.), licensed by the state to practice dentistry, and practicing within the scope of that license. There is no difference between the two degrees: dentists who have a DMD or DDS 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 is required to graduate and become a general dentist. State licensing boards accept either degree as equivalent, and both degrees allow licensed individuals to practice the same scope of general dentistry. Additional post-graduate training is required to become a dental specialist.
