ML in Toronto, Ontario said: I will be graduating from a restorative Hygiene program this spring and am wondering what the average salary is in Ontario, Canada. I understand some hygienists are payed hourly and some commission on top of their hourly rate for fillings. Any info would be appreciated before I have to answer the expected salary question in an interview! Thanks
It really depends on where you are working and how long youhave been. Usually when you are starting you receive 2 - $5 on average more than a regular dental hygienist. Some offices are willing to pay more. If you are more experienced you could be getting upwards of $10 - $30 / hr more than a traditional dental hygienist.
You can also keep in contact with the Ontario Restorative Dental Hygienists Study Club for more information. ontariorestorativedhstudyclub.angelfire.com/
