Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Experience and pay tend to be weakly linked for Dental Hygienists in Seattle, Wash. — those with more experience do not necessarily bring in higher earnings. Workers in their first five years can expect to earn $84K, but people who have been around for five to 10 years earn a noticeably bigger sum of $91K. Seattle Dental Hygienists with one to two decades of relevant experience report an average salary of approximately $94K. Survey participants who have spent more than 20 years on the job report a predictably higher median income of $98K, demonstrating that compensation is roughly commensurate with experience in the end.
