Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Certified Orthodontic Assistants do not generally earn higher incomes from more experience in the field. Relatively untried employees who have less than five years' experience make $31K, but folks with five to 10 years under their belts enjoy an appreciably larger median of $36K. Certified Orthodontic Assistants with one to two decades of relevant experience report an average salary of approximately $39K. Certified Orthodontic Assistants with more than 20 years of experience report incomes that are only modestly higher; the median for these old hands hovers around $42K.
