Michael’s Answer

Location, location, location. Small town America, your net income might only be $40,000 (after student loans, overhead, taxes and other expenses).

In the big cities, you might net $80-100,000, but with higher expenses and long (10-14) hour workdays.

One suggestion would be to take your degree and serve in the military (Army, Navy, Air Force or Coast Guard) as a military officer and DDS, for 4-6 years and gain experience, and work on salary while the Government pays all of your expenses while you pay off some of your loans.

There are many factors that come into play when it comes to a salary and those most notably are skills, work experience, location, certifications, etc. In Ohio, the average salary is $155,035 per year as of September 25, 2020, but the range can fall between $138,438-$181,288.

If you visit www.glassdoor.com you can type in the job (dentist) and location (maybe where you live now or where you would like to live/work) and it will show you the average salary in that area. Good luck!

Jorge’s Answer

You can find basic salary information from websites like Glassdoor. (https://www.glassdoor.com/Salaries/dentist-salary-SRCH_KO0,7.htm) You can make more money if you own your own practice, at which point, you are pretty much an entrepreneur. Then you have to be good at marketing, and know how to provide great customer service and have success scaling it by hiring more dentists to work for you.
