    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.

     

    Utah

    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
    Dental habits 24 Education 11
    Oral health 39 Safety/crime 32
    Overall well-being 4 % uninsured 35
    Cost of living 17 % on Medicaid 4
    % who visited dentist in last year 15 Total score 226
