Are you talking about a doctor (Assistenzarzt) now or a dental assistant?

If you refer to the low salaries of actual new dentists, that is indeed a disgrace, all things considered, but the same applies to other doctors, particularly if set against the hours they work.

An Assistenzzahnarzt can start with an annual salary of as low as 65k in some places, though it can also be 80k or so. They do tend to move up the income latter fairly quickly though.

I know MDs who stayed in research and earned a whopping 3500 a month. Just saying.

Sorry,.I was talking about Assistenzzahnarzt. Well yeah, sounds fair enough for a beginner.. apparently an assistanzzahnarzt does almost everything as a zahnarzt (dentist) except that he cant own a private practice nor does he have the main authoeity in all patient cases, for example he gets somewhat supervised and questioned by the main dentist?
