Hi, am and seventeen and thinking about becoming a dental hygienist. Would like some idea of how much the average salary for a dental hygienist. I would like to have a job that seems cool and I like working with people but I still want the job to at least pay well enough to make a good living on. I have thinking a lot about dental hygienist because I really like my dental hygienist. She is really nice and she says that she really likes her job. I did not think it would be right for me to ask how much she makes. So information on this would be great.
