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.
