Also know that many programs are amenable to moonlighting. As said, most places pay you in the 40's (which means different things in different cities... i.e. New York = piss poor vs. Shreveport = aristocrat). As for me, I moonlight roughly 2 days a month and bring in an extra $2-3 grand a month. I know other people at my program moonlight a bit more and bring in a good hunk of change. I also know of residents at other programs working a ton, and bringing in close to 6 figures or so. Either way, you ain't gonna starve, even with a family to support...How much do Oral and Maxillofacial surgeons make during residency? The OMFS Dr. I work for said you dont make very much and then went into his office. Do you guys have any numerical idea of how much they make?
