Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Denver Dental Hygienists with more experience do not necessarily bring home bigger paychecks. In fact, experience in this field tends to impact compensation minimally. Those in the early stages of their career can expect to make around $69K; however, individuals with five to 10 years of experience bring in $77K on average — a distinctly larger sum. For Dental Hygienists in Denver, 10 to 20 years of experience on the job amounts to an average salary of $81K. 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 $86K on average.
