Dental Assistant Earnings

The median annual wage for dental assistants was $35,390 in May 2014. The median wage is the wage at which half the workers in an occupation earned more than that amount and half earned less. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $24,580, and the highest 10 percent earned more than $49,540.

Most dental assistants work full time. However, almost 1 in 3 assistants worked part time in 2014. Some work evenings or weekends, depending on the hours of operation at the office where they work.
