Wages do not stop growing after 20 years on the job but they do accelerate at a slower rate, and Dental Hygienists in Denver tend to earn $86K at this point in time. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up 15 percent of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise less than 10, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining 23 percent. Age distribution in this workforce is concentrated between one and nine years of experience; more than half of respondents fall in this range.
