Other MEDICAL Professional SALARIES 

Dentists are Different

A 2003 Survey of Dental Practices reported net income from dentistry-related sources. Dentists differ from physicians in that 90% are in private practice.

In 2002, the average practitioner’s net income was $174,350. The average dental specialist’s net was $291,250. These figures represent a 0.7% and a 5.8% increase over 2001, respectively. Net income rose steadily since 1986, when general dentists made an average of $69,920 and specialists an average of $97,920.

But, by 2010, according to PayScale.com, the average general dentist earned $98,276 – $157,437; a decreasing trend allocated as follows.

Salary $92,689 – $147,682
Bonus $1,996 – $19,727
Profit Sharing $1,038 – $27,514
Commissions $480.74 – $32,500

So Are Chiropractors

According to Salary.com, the median salary for strictly office-based chiropractors was $78,994 in 2005; while Collegegrad.com reported the median annual earnings of a salaried chiropractor as $65,330 in 2002; with the middle 50% earning between $44,140 and $102,400.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimated chiropractors earned an average salary of $84,020 in 2004. A Chiropractic Economics survey in 2005 suggested mean salary at $104,363.

Another survey, for 2007, in Chiropractic Economics is available here: http://www.chiroeco.com/article/2007/Issue8/images/CES&ESurvey2007.pdf

And, a range of $44,511 – $82,826 was reported in 2010 by PayScale.com, allocated as follows:

Salary $42,106 – $78,129
Bonus $1,008 – $10,205
Profit Sharing $973 – $8,139
Commission $750 – $10,113

Future Doc!

Podiatrist’s Potential Rising

The salary range for a podiatrist, or Doctor of Podiatric Medicine, in 2006 was reported as $128,000 to $292,000 according to http://www.allied-physicians.com/salary_surveys/physician-salaries.htm.

This robust growth was likely due to expanded education, training, and general allopathic and osteopathic acceptance by the medical community, as well as by insurance companies, employers, patients and various governmental agencies and third party payers.

Increased surgical sub-specialization, in-patient hospital and ambulatory out-patient surgical center activity were also positive compensation factors.

  4. Vast Majority of Docs will get a Pay Bump under MIPS—But it Won’t be Much

    Most doctors and other clinicians did okay in the first year of the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). More than 90% of the doctors and clinicians who participated in MIPS will receive a pay bump based on their performance in 2017, said CMS administrator Seema Verma in a blog post about the program implemented under MACRA in which clinicians receive either a positive, negative, or neutral payment adjustment based on their performance. However, it won’t be much.

    Even those with the highest performance scores only earned a 1.88% positive adjustment. That left many physicians disheartened. Overall, 95% of participants avoided a negative payment adjustment, Verma said. That leaves only 5% of participants with a negative 4% payment adjustment. 71% earned a positive adjustment and an adjustment for exceptional performance and received a 1.88% adjustment, 22% earned a positive payment adjustment only and received a .20% adjustment, and 2% received a neutral adjustment (no increase or decrease).
