Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Dental Hygienists with Anesthesia skills with a lot of experience do not necessarily enjoy higher salaries, as pay increases are mainly incremental. Though starting salaries approximate $64K, they climb to $69K after five to 10 years. Earnings total $71K after one to two decades. Though minimal, Dental Hygienists with Anesthesia skills continue to experience salary development even after two decades, and pay is estimated at $77K. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up 23 percent of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise 5 percent, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining 17 percent. Between one and nine years of experience is the norm for people in this field—more than half of those surveyed fit this bill.
