Dental Workforce Wages and Job Count Dashboard

Explore state-level earnings and job count trends for general dentists and dental staff personnel.

See how wages and job counts for your state's dental workforce have changed over time

The dashboard below represents wages and job counts (or supply) of dental hygienists, dental assistants, and general practitioner dentists in each state for the years 2001-2022. Wages are hourly for hygienists and assistants and annual for general dentists. For more information on how we adjusted earnings data for inflation, see our Data & Methods (PDF) document.

Use the view buttons to toggle between the wages view and the job counts view of the dashboard. Use the drop-down menu to select a specific state. Data are from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

For a count of all general practitioner dentists and specialist dentists by state and other demographics, see HPI's Supply of Dentists report (XLSX).
