They pay more. It's specialty. Besides you have to show you are worth what you want.


Depends on where you are working sometimes OS make more in my experience it's the same mostly . If u really look for a practice with all the trimming you make me a little more but not much

I’ve worked with oral surgery and it was a $2 on the hour .

Getting DAANCE certified will certainly help you make the move and make more $$

Based on the various threads I came across, it appears that it’s best to transfer from tax compliance to M&A tax at the senior level.

I’m up for Manager this fall, and presumably the transfer, either internal or external would not happen until then. Would I be setting myself up for failure if I transfer as a manager? I can’t imagine being successful in managing deals and identifying issues at a manager level..

Inflation costs are killing my pipeline. Many of my deals are scaling back greatly because of their rising operating costs.

How do we overcome the inflation objection? I mean obviously the answer is to show how much value we offer, but how do we do that when all of the companies we work with barely have enough funding?

They need our services, which is at least some job security, but their scale back is greatly affecting our projections and quota attainment.


Sorry in advance guys.

In 4 days, I will be completing 60 days of my lay-off from Deloitte. But, I am not at all worried, and taking time to ensure I get on right team/opportunity, which takes my career ahead.

Why can I afford to to so? Coz, I am not on stupid H1B, and just became Canadian citizen 2 months before this pandemic started. Seems like all those 7 years of wait ( i used to call it jail term here due to limited opportunities) was totally worth it in terms of stability it brings.

Happy Canada Day!

I want to go back to work in the dental field. I was an assistant for 10+ years. I miss helping people smile. But trying to find work that I can do within school hours is so hard! Has anyone found anything that is legit work from home? Either remote treatment plan presenting or helping with scheduling? I really need something from home because my husband travels so much. I’m located outside of Chicago if that helps.

What is the average of a salary per hour for a dental assistant here in va ? I here everyone is making 30per hour around this area ??


I've been a dental assistant for 11 years , and I think I'm done . I feel the pay is never enough and 9/10 we do the most work in the office . It's never commensurate to what we do and no matter how much experience you have your still 3-5$ more than someone fresh out of school . It's a skill I'm glad to know that I can always find work but the burnout for nothing isn't worth it. Can anyone relate


I have been working in Austin/cedar park/ round rock as a dental assistant for two years. I’ve just been promoted to office manager at a small private practice. What would be an appropriate hourly wage? Currently no benefits are offered, but may be in the future.

Hello everyone I have 29 years as a dental professional in Texas. I started as a dental assistant back in 1993. As my career progressed as a RDA, I moved to the front office and eventually management. I even taught dental assistants and became the Program Director of a DA program. COVID opened up remote work for me, I manage eclaims, claims corrections and billing for two offices. $20 per hour, no bonuses or incentives, I know I am not getting paid enough! Any input would be appreciated.
