    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.

     

    Rhode Island

    Rhode Island has jumped up the ranks from 22nd in 2015, to have the fourth best dental habits in the country. Although the tiniest state ranks in the top five in the country for visits to the dentist, the fact that the cost of living is so high (42 out of 50 where the cheapest is the highest rank) drops their overall ranking. That also may be why, despite having a respectable ranking when it comes to median income, Rhode Islanders have median financial savvy and low overall well-being. Other bonus: Rhode Island has the fourth-lowest crime rate. And hey, they were number one of the 13 original colonies!

     

    Median income 19 Financial savvy 21
    Dental habits 4 Education 21
    Oral health 20 Safety/crime 4
    Overall well-being 31 % uninsured 3
    Cost of living 45 % on Medicaid 14
    % who visited dentist in last year 5 Total score 184
