A $450 a Day Dental Hygienist’s Salary Utopia? (video)

A $450 a Day Dental Hygienist's Salary Utopia? (video)The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics lists dental hygiene as one of the top 20 fastest growing occupations with an average mean wage of $33.54 an hour.

However, many dental hygienists work part time and only about 38% percent work full time at a dental practice.

The Wealthy Dentist conducted a survey that asked dentists the average hourly base pay for their dental hygienist.

Dentists were varied in their responses, ranging from statements that dental hygienists are the lifeblood of the of their dental practice to dental hygienists being overpaid leeches sucking the practice dry.

One dentist complained, “I do not know what they are thinking. Do they think they are worth more than doctors? I am paying my hygienist too much . . . and it is the market rate.”

But another dentist reported paying his dental hygienist $55.00 an hour and raved, “She’s worth every penny. She makes me a fortune!”

It all comes down to how much money a dental hygienist can bring in to a dental practice.
