Salary Question

Hi, my name is Jen and I'm a Dental Assistant. I currently live and work in upstate NY, I'm contemplating a move to NYC, and I hope to find a position down there as a DA. I was just wondering if anyone in this community has any helpful info/advise about the NYC Dental Industry, such as salaries and working conditions and stuff.

A little background info on me; I have been a DA since 1998, have been practicing for 8 years, 4 years in the USAF, 4 years private practice (3 years off for college) and I currently hold DANB certification. Still waiting on my NYS license (damn bureaucracy!) and I'm 2 Gen Eds away from an Associates Degree in Dental Assisting (an Associates, not a Certificate; can't say the military never did anything for me!). I've done restorative, endo, pros, just starting to assist in implant procedures, not a lot of pedo, and virtually no ortho experience (incidentally, both fields the military doesn't really do much with regards to). I'm proficient in both conventional and digital radiology, and I make darn good temp crowns.

That's all I can think of right now; any info that people could give me would be most appreciated.
