Dear Mindi
Basically they are both dietitians, but a clinical dietitian sees patients and prescribes diets to these patients. Other dietitians work in communities and are called community dietitians, or if they work as consultants to food companies then they would be called something like 'Nutrition consultants'. So the name 'clinical' refers to those dietitians who consult to patients.
