Video: Dental Hygiene Practitioners would make $13.87 an hour
The Washington State Dental Association has put together a short economic analysis of a proposed dental hygiene practitioner found in HB 2226 and SB 6126. This analysis lays out the revenue and expenses a dental hygiene practitioner would have if he or she treated Medicaid patients in a signle chair clinc. WSDA believes that practitioners created in HB 2226 and SB 6126 are not economically viable without extensive government subsidy. This is one of many reasons why we are asking legislators to vote NO on HB 2226 and SB 6126.
