Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For Medical or Dental Office Managers, level of experience is overall a somewhat less important part of the salary calculation—more experience does not yield dramatically higher pay—and pay raises are largely incremental. Beginning workers can expect to earn $34K starting out, which grows to $39K after five to 10 years. Between 10 and 20 years, pay reaches $41K. After 20 years of work in the field, Medical or Dental Office Managers typically earn $46K and go on to enjoy (slight) increases in earnings. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up 27 percent of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise 2 percent, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining 20 percent. Between one and nine years is the typical spectrum of experience for those in this line of work—of those who took the survey, more than half land within this radius.
