Do they get paid good money and good benefits? What is their salary?
How much can a dental assistant make in a year?
Depending on your location...it's about $53,000 a year. Just go Yahoo Search it (or Google it) and type in "Dental Assistant Salary"
I'm sure their benefits are markedly similar to those of legal secretaries, lab technicians, dental hygenists, etc. It would largely depend on the firm and whether or not they provide good benefits to the owners %26amp; management---
It would be very competitive---and for that reason alone, I'm sure they would have to be appealing to applicants---forcing the firm to offer very good benefits.
