Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Certified Orthodontic Assistants with more experience do not necessarily bring home bigger paychecks. In fact, experience in this field tends to impact compensation minimally. Although individuals who have less than five years' experience earn $31K on average, people with five to 10 years benefit from a notably larger average of $36K. After working for 10 to 20 years, Certified Orthodontic Assistants make a median salary of $40K. Respondents who claim more than 20 years of experience may encounter pay that doesn't quite reflect their extensive experience; these veterans report a median income of around $43K.
