Dental Hygienist Salary Survey 2014

Difficulty in finding a job as a dental hygienist in Idaho

Observation: Idaho provided the minimum of survey responses, 14. So we suspect there may be a few dental hygienists who disagree with these numbers. But it is worth nothing that almost 60% of those who responded think it is “very difficult” to find a job.

Length of time since last pay raise in Idaho

Observation: The national average for receiving a pay raise within the last year is 26%. So Idaho is doing very well in this regard.

Most common hourly pay rate in Idaho

$36

Observation: 33% said they earn $36 an hour. 67% earn rates in the $35 to $38 an hour range.

Descriptions of pay arrangements based on production or commission

  • I earn 43% of my hygiene specific production. That is, any work I do like X-rays, cleanings, sealants, fluoride applications — anything I do. If I am behind and ask someone to take my X-rays, I would not earn anything for that production. I am not paid if a patient no shows/cancels, or for clean up, set up. I work for a discounted fee office as well, so our prices are generally lower than anywhere else.
