Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For Certified Orthodontic Assistants, experience does not seem to be a major factor in determining pay. Those in the early stages of their career can expect to make around $32K; however, individuals with five to 10 years of experience bring in $39K on average — a distinctly larger sum. After working for 10 to 20 years, Certified Orthodontic Assistants make a median salary of $40K. People who have worked for more than 20 years report a median income of $42K, which is barely higher than the median for folks with 10 to 20 years of experience.
