Drs. Langer were among the first trained to place dental implants. Over the last 30 years they have placed more than 45,000 dental implants in over 8,000 patients with a documented success rate of 97%. There is not a dental situation that these doctors have not seen nor already treated in their careers.
One of the most frequently asked questions that we hear is "What is the difference between the degrees of D.D.S. and D.M.D. ?" The answer is that they are educationally the same. DDS is the abbreviation for Doctor of Dental Surgery, DMD is the abbreviation for Doctor of Dental Medicine. It only depends upon which institution granted the degree in dentistry.
