EFDA Student in Port Saint Lucie, Florida said: Sorry if you feel this is personal i just like to know from real DA's and not averages online. Also where do you work and how many ppl are in your office?
I started at $12 right out of school. Small, private office with no health insurance. I moved around and was up to $19 7 years later. This was at another small private office with no health insurance, but an employer paid IRA and paid holidays, sick time and vacation time. I recently started a new position at a corporate dental office. I make $18 now, but they have excellent benefits including health insurance with plans from $60-$85 a month. Also, life insurance, vision insurance, free dental for you and your family, etc. plus, it's a 40 hr week when I was working 36. Bigger office too. One doctor 2 full time hygienists, 4 front desk, 2 assistants.
