Why this petition matters

Started by D. Ortho

We all deserve to be treated with dignity at work and to be fairly compensated for our skills and qualifications. After investing considerable time and money in training and accreditation, Orthodontic Assistants are right to expect a working environment that is safe, professional and fosters secure careers. Unfortunately, all too often many Ortho practices are plagued by inadequate pay, irregular raises (if any)and benefits, unsafe conditions and broken equipment, and a lack of respect for the hard work and dedication of Orthodontic Assistants.

Orthodontic assisting is female dominated I can't help but wonder if it were a male dominated field would pay would be higher?  We love our CAREER choice maybe with representation we can be heard and understood.
