Paid Vacation

I have been working in the same dental office for 25 years. I am the only hygienist. I work 30 hours a week. I get paid holidays a pension plan and 2 weeks paid vacation. I am trying to get another week paid vacation. My dentists challenged me to find a hygienist that gets 3 weeks paid vacation. If their is anyone out there in my similar situation with 3 weeks vacation please come forward. Thank you

I just started at a new office where I get 1 wk sick days, 1 wk vacation after a yr of work, 2 wks 2nd yr and then 3wks… so after 3 yrs all together 4 wks. I get paid holidays, uniform allowance, $75 shoe allowance, quarterly bonuses if the whole office is doing well, 100% dental and health insurance.I was working for an office 32-40 hrs a wk and got nothing even tho I saw 10 pts a day and sold products. I consider myself very blessed to find this job after searching for two yrs.

I have never been given benefits, paid holidays, a pension plan or paid vacation at any office I’ve ever worked at. That’s just my experience.

Hi Kara…I work for a dentist that gives us 1 week paid vaca and 1 week paid sick time for first 1-3 years working for him. After that it’s 2 weeks paid vaca and 1 week paid sick time. That is where I am at right now. However the other hygienist I work with has been working here for 16 years and she gets 3 weeks paid vaca and 1 week paid sick time so basically she is getting 4 weeks off paid per year right now….

I used to work at an office that received 4 weeks paid. We had to take the time off that was planned by the doc but she always let us know at the beginning of the year when these weeks would occur. I have a friend who is a dentist. She does this same thing with her employees.

I get 3 weeks paid vacation and 12 sick days a year along with 11 paid holidays. My employer gives me 25 hours off paid for Continuing Education and reimburses me for classes, food, lodging and mileage. I also receive $450 annually for uniform allowance and a $2400 yearly bonus on my date of hire. For your 25 years of dedication to the practice you need 3 weeks of vacation!

I am starting a new job that has all part time hygienist and no vacation. If you need time off you need to find someone to cover for you. Not sure I will last long in this office. Last office I had 4 weeks ear.
