Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For Orthodontic Technicians, level of experience appears to be a somewhat less important part of the salary calculation — more experience does not correlate to noticeably higher pay. Salaries for the relatively untried average out to around $26K, but survey participants with five to 10 years of experience earn a significantly higher median of $36K. For Orthodontic Technicians, 10 to 20 years of experience on the job amounts to an average salary of $38K. Orthodontic Technicians who surpass 20 years on the job report pay that isn't higher than those with 10 to 20 years.
