    The best and worst states to work in a dental practice: 2017

    From 1 to 50, we looked at each state to see how it really stacks up for dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants and dental front office team members.

     

    Minnesota

    Congrats to Minnesota! You'll have to suffer through some seriously snowy winters, but high rankings in education, dentist-visiting residents and financial savvy (eighth, third and first respectively) make the Land of 10,000 Lake's the best state for dentists. The state boasts the fourth lowest rate of uninsured residents, and has the lowest percentage of adults with poor or fair oral condition in the entire country. And the snow must not be getting people down: Minnesota ranked first in overall happiness and general well-being.

    Median income 12 Financial savvy 1
    Dental habits 1 Education 8
    Oral health 3 Safety/crime 11
    Overall well-being 1 % uninsured 4
    Cost of living 31 % on Medicaid 9
    % who visited dentist in last year 3 Total score 84
