Dental assistants are in high demand, which makes wages competitive. A dental assistant’s salary is based on wherein the U.S. they are employed. California’s annual average salary is $44,940 while Minnesota has the highest annual salary of nearly $54,000 per year. Overall, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that as of 2020, dental assistants nationwide earned an average annual wage of $42,310, with an average hourly wage of $20.34.

The average wage for dental assistants depends on a few things other than geography, including years of experience, the number of certifications, and the employer.

What People Have Said

Gina H.

San Diego, CA

My Son just recently started the program and it took us a while to find a school that was very hands-on with modern teaching. I went to visit a few schools and found a lot of outdated tools , equipment and techniques and once we visited Howard we knew this was the one! He comes home very excited about all the new things he learns daily. Classrooms are very small, so its real hands on . So glad we made this choice!

Aly P.

Very pleased with this school. You always feel professional in your surroundings as well as all the help you can think of. I would recommend this school to anyone interested in the dental field or those looking to forward their dental education with an RDAEF or an OAP.

Lauren C.

Santee, CA

Great school! They are very supportive of their students, and all of the instructors are engaging and fun. I am only a few months into my program- I will update again once I graduate. I am really loving it so far though, and chose Howard between 4 other RDA programs in San Diego. I’ve already recommended it to several of my friends!
