After earning a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) or Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree from an accredited dental school, general dentists can choose to pursue additional training in specialties ranging from pediatric dentistry to dental public health. As the American Dental Education Association (ADEA) explains, post-doctorate study in a dental specialty generally requires 24-36 months of schooling and hands-on training.
