Dental Hygienist Salary Survey 2014

Difficulty in finding a job as a dental hygienist in Ohio

Observation: 51% indicated that they practice in the Cleveland, Columbus, or Cincinnati metropolitan areas. So it’s an educated guess that the 52% who find it very difficult to find a job — which is six percentage points above the national average — may be closer to where the dental hygiene schools are. Why? The hygienists who think it’s “easy” to find a job is a little above average too.

Length of time since last pay raise in Ohio

Observation: Overall, Ohio hygienists receive raises in about the same pattern as those in other states. But raises within the last year is a little below average, and hygienists receiving raises more than five years ago are a little above average. Ohio hygienists are not necessarily a shining example of being rewarded for good work.

Most common hourly pay rates in Ohio

$28, $30, $33

Observation: $30 an hour is the most common hourly rate in Ohio, but 43% earn in the $33 to $36 an hour range. Overall, Ohio trends below the national average for hourly pay rates.
