A dental assistant is earning a $50K salary.
The Lakeview-based dental hygerineist is on staff at the Loomis & Co dental clinic in Lakeview, Florida, and he earns $50k per year.
He is also the dental assistant who helps clients fill out their health records.
According to the US Department of Labor, dental assistants make an average of $46,600 per year, with the highest earning positions at $54,900 and the lowest earning positions $38,100.
The median dental assistant salary is $52,700.
The average salary for a dental hygonist is $48,300.
The Lakeview clinic offers both a private and a hospital dental office.
In an interview with The Next World, Loomi & Co said that they had decided to cut the salary by 1,000 dollars per year due to the impact that the loss of the hospital dental clinic would have on the patient’s health care.
The company said that the staff has been told that if they want to continue working at the dental clinic the new salary will be cut by another 1,300 dollars.
The dental hygaist is a vital part of the dental team and has a direct impact on the health of patients and the environment, said Loomy & Co CEO Dr. Robert D. Smith.
“We have to make a tough decision to cut this guy’s salary, because he’s a tremendous asset to the business and a great employee.
He’s been with us a long time and we’ve been fortunate to work with him,” Smith said.
Loomia & Co has also said that if the employee wants to continue their job with the dental office, they can leave at any time.
There is a new dental clinic at Lakeview.
