Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Across the entire workforce, experience and pay tend to be weakly linked—those with more experience do not necessarily bring in much higher salaries. After five to 10 years, starting salaries jump from $34K to $39,749. Those who spend a decent amount of time in this profession—one to two decades—usually make about $40K. Though salary increases are not as strong, pay continues to grow slightly for Dental Financial Coordinators after two decades on the job, and average earnings come to $42K. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up 24 percent of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise less than five, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining 21 percent. In this field, workers tend to have anywhere from one to nine years of experience—of those surveyed, more than half land within this range.
