    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.

     

    Vermont

    Tucked away way up in New England, the Green Mountain State came in second among the states for the lowest percentage of uninsured. Frequently snowed-in Vermont also ranked first for the least crime and fifth for education level. All that tasty maple syrup led Vermont citizens to frequent the dentist, ranking fourth in terms of visits—but it also landed them in 34th place for overall oral health.
