Jane in Victoria, British Columbia said: I guess that depends where you live. In Canada, the wages are a bit higher to compensate for the high cost of living.
Most dental assistants with experience get $20 or more per hour. Just out of school you get around $18. I've been an assistant
for 7 years, and they were paying me starting out wage, so I feel that was wrong.
$18 out of school? Are you sure? I'm only getting paid $9, others with experience is only getting $10. Not only that, my cheap boss, which is the dentist is trying to get us to mop & sweep his office. For $9 an hour he could could kiss my ass.
