Dental Assistant Salary

     Are you wondering what kind of salary or income you can make as a dental assistant? We at Practical Dental Assisting of Utah want our students to have a job BEFORE they graduate from our dental assisting school in Utah County. The average dental assistant salary and hourly wage varies according to state, city, number of dentists in a specific area, and the type of dental office they may work. We found the following to be a good summary of a dental assistant salary.
  • Dental assistants work in a number of health care professions, but the most popular industries tend to be dental prosthetic services, family dentistry, health care, orthodontics and pediatric offices.  The salaries of these industries are similar as they start out a little less than $12 an hour and may increase to just under the national average of about $16. *
  • The average yearly salary is typically between $24,000 and $35,000. You may start at an hourly rate of a little more than $11 and eventually work your way to more than $16 an hour. *
  • Someone with a Bachelor of Science degree in biology may start off around $10 an hour and may eventually work up to $15. *
  • A certificate of completion can get you started above the average hourly salary with around $12 and can eventually earn you a slightly higher salary than you would have with a BS. *
     We understand the need for a stable and rewarding career. The great fact about dentistry is people are always going to have teeth and will always have dental care needs! The Dental Field is not under threat from our current economy and each of our instructors have years of experience in the field. We are currently updating and extending our curriculum to better educate our students in basic and specialty dental assistant training. Feel free to check out our website and call us with any questions!

Dental Assistant School in Utah

     Practical Dental Assisting of Utah is looking forward to 2011 and to extended courses for Dental Assisting and Dental Administration. We listened to our students' reviews and decided that our 10 week courses were not quite enough time for our students to feel completely comfortable with everything they had learned.
     So, as of January 7, 2011 our courses will be 12 weeks long and will include more time for students to practice in our functioning dental office, weekly review time, and expanded topics such as dental specialties and their procedures!

Dental Assisting School

We are so proud to be a competitive college of Dental Assisting in Utah County! We offer affordable classes in Dental Assisting and Dental Office Administration. We are all booked up for the remainder of this year but are enrolling students for January! Call today and learn how to achieve a great job in a stable career field.

Here’s what a recent graduate had to say about her experience:

“I am so grateful for the opportunity that I had to attend Practical Dental Assisting of Utah! I learned so much about dentistry and about myself. The staff was amazing and was always there to help in any way they could. I have never been a good classroom learner but at PDA of Utah I learned wonderfully! The classes were small so you could really have one on one time with the teachers and the “hands on” learning really helped me to succeed! If I had to suggest any dental assisting program I would definitely suggest PDA of Utah!!! I loved it and will always be a fan!”
