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.
While Utah ranked in the bottom half for insurance coverage and oral health, this mountain state ranked 15th for visits to the dentist. High education levels (go Cougars!) and above-average median income contributed to a high ranking for overall well-being, but a high number of uninsured citizens and low financial savvy brought Utah down to the 18th spot overall.
|Median income||13||Financial savvy||32|
|Overall well-being||4||% uninsured||35|
|Cost of living||17||% on Medicaid||4|
|% who visited dentist in last year||15||Total score||226|
