How much does a dental assistant make per hour ?

Researching dental assistant jobs and I am wondering how much they make per hour. Anyone who is a dental assistant that can offer me any insight would be great.

Generally $25-$45/hr and they usually only work around 30ish hours a week at two different dental offices. That's the norm. I'm a nurse and nursing sucks. No jobs and high abuse rate. Worst field ever. I wish I would have been smart and gone for Dental Assisting.
