Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For Certifed Dental Assistants with Pediatrics skills, 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 $30K on average, but those with five to 10 years of experience enjoy a much bigger median of $38K. Certifed Dental Assistants with Pediatrics skills with one to two decades of relevant experience report an average salary of approximately $41K. People who have worked for more than 20 years report a median income of $44K, which is barely higher than the median for folks with 10 to 20 years of experience.
