Members don't see this ad.
I have some college friends trying to decide between med/dental school. Aside from all the drawn out discussions of pros/cons of each, I was wondering if there was a site that talks about competitiveness of each dental speciality and the typical salary of each?

Ortho/OMFS are probably the top 1/2 in terms of both salaries and competitiveness.

What about endo, perio, peds, cosmetic, etc?

thanks.

if you or they are not competent enough to do a simple search function on this website, then most likely none of you will be competitive enough to get into a specialty (or dental school for that matter).

Life is harsh! 2007er, obviously you're trying to find which profession will pay the most and how hard it is to get into one that will pay the most. So excuse me if I don't jump to answer your question. It's people like you that will turn dentistry into a profession advertised as a 'get rich quick' scheme. :D

Why can't we all just get along....:rolleyes:

To answer the question dental salaries vary widely among all specialties and amongst all specialists within their certain specialty. All specialties and general dentistry for that matter provide an income in the top 5% of all Americans. Good enough for me. From what I have researched though the two specialties with the highest earning potential are OMFS and ortho in no specific order.
