    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.

     

    North Dakota

    Dropping one spot from 2015, few financial concerns and the country’s lowest percentage of residents on Medicaid push this sparsely populated state to 11th on the list. Though North Dakota has the 16th highest median income, these neighbors of Canada have an above average cost of living. Another downside: We hear there's not much to do up there in the Peace Garden State, which might contribute to its abysmal 44th place finish on overall well-being. Ranking right in the middle at 25th for dental visits, North Dakotans has the fifth best dental habits in the country.

     

    Median income 16 Financial savvy 3

    Oral health 9 Safety/crime 16
    Overall well-being 44 % uninsured 21
    Cost of living 26 % on Medicaid 1
    % who visited dentist in last year 25 Total score 189
