2. Dentists

Dentists are also among the highest-paid people in the United States, with oral surgeons at the top of the list, earning an average of $243,000 per year. This is in contrast with the $230,000 earned by orthodontists, the $197,000 earned by prosthodontists, and the $188,000 raked in by regular dentists who clean teeth and fill cavities. Dentistry is also a lengthy university journey, though.
