Dentist Salary In Massachusetts

Dentist Salary In Massachusetts

The average dentist salary in Massachusetts is $137,000. This is one of the highest average dentist salaries in the nation. Dentists can earn higher salaries by working in more specialized areas of dentistry, such as oral surgery or endodontics. The highest paying areas of dentistry are general practice and periodontics, which pay an average salary of $131,000 and $120,000 respectively.

Dentists who work in specialty areas can earn up to twice as much as their general practice counterparts. For example, an oral surgeon earns an average salary of $215,000 per year while a pediatric dentist earns an average yearly salary of $146,000. However, most dentists work in a general practice setting and earn salaries that are closer to those of other general practitioners at around $140,000 per year.

In addition to higher salaries for specialized positions within dentistry, dentists also have some flexibility when it comes to location because there are plenty of opportunities for practicing across state lines. Dentists who work outside major metropolitan areas may find themselves earning more than those who choose to stay closer to home because they will not be competing with as many other professionals for patients’ business.”
