Septic tank cleaning guy makes more than Dentist
For all you morons out there that think dentist make tons of money get a load of this. This evening I had my septic tank cleaned. It took the guy about 30 minutes and the bill was $200.

I did not tell him what I did for a living but he said he had been working about 8 years and saved about $170,000. He said he was going to work another 8 years and could retire with social security and about $400,000 in savings.

I asked him what he was making and he said about $85,000. That was my take home as a dentist with 25 years experience last year.

WTF is going on? The next asshole that comes in a wants me to pull a tooth for $100, I am going to refer him to the septic tank guy.

He does wade in shit all day. Doesn't that count for anything?
Well it seems so real I can see it
And it seems so real I can feel it
And it seems so real I can taste it
And it seems so real I can hear it
So why can't I touch it?

Re: Septic tank cleaning guy makes more than Dentist
I agree with with the other poster, he's dealing with some nastey things. .......and I just paid $700 for a 1 hour root canal...

Do you not do many of them?


Also- I never pondered the idea of who makes more, don't assume. : p

You have been screwed. A single canal root canal takes at least 2 appts and at least 4 hours including anesthesia. My fee is $320. It must have been a molar and it is impossible to do 3 canals in an hour. Either he did a pulpotomy (partial) root canal and is not finished, you live in California.

Re: Septic tank cleaning guy makes more than Dentist
Dentists are a bunch of obnoxious assholes.They think that they are Gods and they make us wait and wait just to prove in their own sick minds that they are better than us mere mortals.I guess they have this complex because they aren't bright enough and don't have the capacity to become REAL doctors...LOSERS

Seems reasonable to me. A septic tank cleaner has to be competent, safe, and exercise sound judgment.

Re: Septic tank cleaning guy makes more than Dentist
Where do you do denistry Canada?

I pay $1,400 for a crown.

It's over $300 to get my teeth f'ing cleaned.

And all the root canal specialists around here want cash up front no insurance. The kind the regular dentists won't do? $1,000.

Re: Septic tank cleaning guy makes more than Dentist
The people who do the exceedingly icky jobs most people would never want to do should be compensated accordingly. Nobody gives respect and admiration to the Roto-Rooter Guy. Who would want to take their Septic Tank Cleaning father to Career Day at school? There isn't a lot of bragging about being a shithole janitor. I won't begrudge anyone getting paid well to do the job that I wouldn't do no matter how much you paid me.

Standard dentist V's a cosmetic dentist… move up in your field. What's it cost to install a set of porcelain veneers 20K? and how many hours work is involved in that?

How is his job any less valuable than yours? Can you empty your own septic? Apparently not.

Re: Septic tank cleaning guy makes more than Dentist
My husband does septics & sewer cleaning. They have to take your sewage to the treatment plant and pay .02-.05 per gallon for disposal. Average tank being about 1,000 gallons. The septic truck alone costs about $170,000 and up depending on size, etc. Figure in employee, fuel, insurance, overhead and everything else it's not bookoo profit.

Although, I will admit there's probably 70-100 sewer cleaners in our county and we all do well. Plenty of chit to go around. The sewer machine they carry into your basement weighs about 325 pounds and your pushing in and pulling out 100' of cable (also not light), it beats you up and you do get covered in chit. Sewer gas is lethal.

Your chit is our bread and butter ;)

Re: Septic tank cleaning guy makes more than Dentist
Oh, and did someone say vacation? What's that? We're 24/7 service. Would you come to my house and pull my tooth at 3:00 a.m.? Imagine your basement flooding with chit and they tell you, take a pill and call me in the morning. Sorry, but my husband works his butt off and deserves what he makes. We can't go anywhere without that pager going off. There's no 9-5 around here. He had an infection before from sewer splatter. His whole face was swollen. It is dangerous.
