    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.

     

    Kansas

    The fine folks of this Midwestern state have it pretty good. Their cost of living is in the nation’s Top 10 (#8 overall) and few people are on Medicaid compared to the rest of the country. Average crime and overall well-being rankings were balanced out by high education levels and financial savvy, which brought Kansas up four places from its 20th-place finish in 2015.

     

    Median income 27 Financial savvy 15
    Dental habits 18 Education 14
    Oral health 22 Safety/crime 28
    Overall well-being 23 % uninsured 27
    Cost of living 8 % on Medicaid 5
    % who visited dentist in last year 17 Total score 204
