Hello, I'm new here and I couldn't get a straight answer from google :)
I've been working in the dental field about a year as a receptionist and the doctor has been hinting that she would like me to become the office manager. It's a smaller practice, just the doctor, assistant, and I. Is there a big difference in responsisbilities?

Medical and Dental practice or office managers actually manage and run the office so there'll be duties there that, as a receptionist, you wouldn't be doing.
