The average salary in America for dentistry is about $134,000
That guys answer was pretty accurate with the $134K Although that's not right off the bat. when you're fresh out of dental school and ready to start looking for a job you don't just start making 140K a year. you'll start off working under other dentists and build up your experience and clientel at about $90-110,000/yr. WHIch is still very good income. but it takes time to bump yourself up.
