Abstract

Salaries and benefits are a major concern for dental hygienists and their employers. In 1998, the University of Tennessee Dental Hygiene Department conducted a survey of dental hygienists licensed to practice in Tennessee. Objectives included (1) to determine the current salary range and benefits of practicing dental hygienists, (2) to determine the factors which influence salaries and benefits, and (3) to compare the salaries and benefits of dental hygienists across the state. Results revealed an average compensation of $175.00 per day. While most full-time dental hygienists receive paid vacation, only 33 percent receive health care benefits. There were various factors influencing salaries and benefits, including the method of compensation, region of the state in which one practices, years of experience, and ethnic background.
