How much does the average How much does the average dentist make in the US from min to max? from min to max?
Good question. Dentist do not normally work for a company that is handing them a weekly pay check. It would be based on how many people that they are treating. What they charging for their services and what their over head is. Some may have their own office so they would have more over head then others who work out of a large office sharing their expenses. Even if they do work for a company that paying them, years of experience and what they can or can not do will effect pay.
Keep in mind it is not what you are grossing that matters. It is what you are netting at the end of the year that counts. (Net income: is what you you have made minus what you had to pay order to make it.)
What does it matter if you make 100 if you had to pay 99 to get it.
With that being said: I did search your question and this is what one web site has to says
Most dentists work independently and earn money per treatment or patients visit, rather than having a steady salary. Because of this, it is difficult to asses how much a particular dentist can earn, as this depends on the number of patients he sees and the rates he has chosen to charge for his services. As a national average, dentists earned $136,960 in 2006, which comes to an hourly wage of about $71.96. This is based mostly on general practitioners who work solo.
