GROWTH


The US Bureau of Labor and Statistics projects this career to grow 11% from 2018 to 2028 (which is much faster than the average for all occupations) due to the increasing aging population.

FINANCIAL INCENTIVES


In 2019 the median pay in the US was $19.27/hour or about $40,080/year. This varies and can range from $12.00/ hr to $24/ hr depending on location, expertise, and skill.

FLEXIBILITY & FREEDOM


Dentistry is a profession that is typically considered full time at 4 days/ week. This allows more flexibility in both your personal and professional schedule.
