Interesting how "all other specialties of dentistry" (#15) make less money than "general dentists" (#13)

So, specialties excluding ortho, oral surgery, and prostho actually make LESS money than general dentists? I thought pedo's usually make more than a general dentists?

They obviously don't report correct numbers:laugh::laugh::laugh:

I like Forbes it typically a little off.

It might not take into account the type of office. Ie: a single pedo or endo with a small family practice, compared to G.P. small family practice, but with 3 hygenists.

According to the article:

"The survey covers full- and part-time workers who are paid a wage or salary. It does not include the self-employed, owners and partners in unincorporated firms, household workers and unpaid family workers. "

Considering many dentists and probably more specialists own their practice and are self-employed, the statistics could be slightly (or significantly) skewed.

This is true...if the list included self-employed/private practice doctors and dentists, the salaries would probably be quite a bit higher.

makes sense...

so these salaries are for dentists who work at institutions or for someone else and get a paycheck, as opposed to owning private practice.

*Note:* these are non-socialized medicine figures.

Amen! This actually bad news for me. It means that more and more people are looking to get into dentistry. I have to work much harder. But, this is free market capitalism right here. Hope it doesn't change anytime soon.:D

Anyone else notice that #2 Surgeons' highest paid workplace is "Office of a Dentist"?? Are they referring to oral surgeons, because they have their own spot at #5! Lol, what do you make of that?
