Just for doing what you love.

Have you ever thought about what you could do with an additional $500,000 or more over your career? What a difference it would make in you or your family’s life? A bigger nest egg for retirement, the ability to travel more, a nicer home or car, or wherever your dreams take you.

Moving to the Louisville area and becoming a hygienist with Mortenson Dental Partners (MDP) could give you the opportunity to earn more for doing what you love. We offer a base compensation rate between $35 – $45 an hour plus generous bonus opportunities. Our hygienists make an average of $44 per hour.
