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.
High cost of living and poor overall oral health push Colorado down the icy slopes to 17th on the list. However, with high median income and education levels, and a high ranking of overall well-being (11th, third and third of 50, respectively), Colorado boasts a below-average number of Broncos that are uninsured. And hey, we hear the scenery is breathtaking.
