Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For Charlotte Dental Hygienists, level of experience appears to be a somewhat less important part of the salary calculation — more experience does not correlate to noticeably higher pay. Survey participants with less than five years' experience pocket $63K on average, but those with five to 10 years of experience enjoy a much bigger median of $68K. People with 10 to 20 years of experience make an average of about $71K in this role. Individuals who report more than two decades of experience seem to make only slightly more than folks in the 10-to-20 year range; the more senior group sees median earnings in the comparatively modest ballpark of $72K.
