How Much Money Do Dentists Earn?

I found these statistics on the ADA's website.  (American Dental Association).

The annual NET income for dentists who owned part or all of their practice was around $190,000 per year for general denitsts and around $305,000 per year for specialists.  (these stats come out of report created in 2009)

I'm sure that situations vary widely for individual dentists.  I think we were meant to take this as some type of average.    It's always difficult to perceive the accuracy or relative accuracy of any statistic.

Never the less, these are NET figures and not gross.    This, of course, would mean that the average dentist earns far more than the average person or patient that he or she might be treating.

If you would like to read this information for yourself, I found it here.

If you are a dentist who is reading this, I am curious to ask:  Do you feel that this large economic difference puts you somewhat out of touch with the economic realities of your patients and their ability to pay for your services?   

What do you as an average person or a dental professional think about these stats?
