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. Survey participants with less than five years' experience pocket $71K on average, but those with five to 10 years of experience enjoy a much bigger median of $78K. People with 10 to 20 years of experience make an average of about $82K in this role. Individuals who report more than two decades of experience seem to make only slightly more than folks in the 10-to-20 year range; the more senior group sees median earnings in the comparatively modest ballpark of $86K.
