Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Experience does not seem to be a strong driver of pay increase in this role. Those in the early stages of their career can expect to make around $87K; however, individuals with five to 10 years of experience bring in $92K on average — a distinctly larger sum. Dental Hygienists in Seattle, Wash. with one to two decades of relevant experience report an average salary of approximately $94K. In the end, the overall pattern seems to be that more experience generally corresponds to higher pay; a Dental Hygienist with more than 20 years of experience can earn $98K on average.
