Dynamic group is also mail enabled DG and it's members are added dynamically when a message is sent to that group.
This DG creation is based on a filter.
If you have a mail enabled DG with a common filter, say location "New York", Then you can create a Dynamic group with this filter and delete the mail enabled DG.
I am not sure if there is a direct conversion possible..

your concern is valid but, unfortunately, you cannot convert so, your only option, is to create new groups with slightly different names
