Pinellas Park, Fla. — With the new year well underway, many individuals have already begun searching out new careers regardless of if they are just entering the workforce or are considering switching industries. But for any of those who are still wondering if it is time to take the leap, a provider of a 10-Week dental assistant program in Pinellas Park, FL is encouraging interested parties to consider becoming dental assistants in response to both a large number of open positions in the field as well as the recent increase in hourly wages for dental assistants who have recently graduated.

According to Indeed, the average base pay for dental assistants in Florida has been $17.47 per hour. However, this number does fluctuate depending on years of experience with those with less than a year of experience in the field have been typically receiving an average base pay of $15.35 per hour. Recently, there has been a 10% increase in hourly rates for new graduates. The recent increase in hourly rates combined with the recent shortage of applicants is notable and indicates that those with an interest in becoming a dental assistant would likely receive multiple job offers with competitive salaries.

New Year, New Career! 2022 is the perfect time to make a career move to become a dental assistant in as little as 10 weeks and start earning a great paycheck that will improve your life,” stated Wendy Paquette, owner of the Dental Assisting Institute.
