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.

Hey Becca You're best best would be to go to a really cool site www.salary.com and type in DA and the state where you live - they pretty much give you an idea on how much a DA would make starting and also as a seasoned DA. **Good Luck**
