Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Orthodontic Technicians with more experience do not necessarily bring home bigger paychecks. In fact, experience in this field tends to impact compensation minimally. Relatively untried employees who have less than five years' experience make $28K, but folks with five to 10 years under their belts enjoy an appreciably larger median of $36K. On average, Orthodontic Technicians make $38K following one to two decades on the job. Respondents who claim more than 20 years of experience may encounter pay that doesn't quite reflect their extensive experience; these veterans report a median income of around $39K.
