Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For San Antonio Dental Assistants, level of experience appears to be a somewhat less important part of the salary calculation — more experience does not correlate to noticeably higher pay. Survey participants with less than five years' experience pocket $25K on average, but those with five to 10 years of experience enjoy a much bigger median of $31K. Dental Assistants in San Antonio, Texas bring in $35K after working for 10 to 20 years. Individuals who report more than two decades of experience seem to make about the same as folks in the 10-to-20 year range.
