The third-ranked job, occupational therapist, also came in third last year. Like dental hygienists, occupational therapists tend to work a 9-5 schedule and to determine their own level of commitment. They help people in physically demanding jobs like construction, get back to work, as opposed to physical therapists, No. 5 on the list, who treat more general injuries. Their median annual income is $75,000 and the BLS projects a growth rate of 33% from 2010-2020.
