    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.

     

    New York

    New York jumped up significantly from our 2015 rankings—from number 36 to number 20. That’s despite having the second-highest cost of living, and ranking 45th in patients on Medicaid. However, those numbers are evened out by high numbers of New Yorkers who practice good dental habits (#7) and are financially savvy (#5). New York also, perhaps surprisingly to viewers of literally any crime show, ranks in the top five for low crime concerns and community safety, though some of that is no doubt thanks to the upstate folks. And, if this survey were entirely ranked upon the best pizza, they would be number one without a doubt.

     

    Median income 15 Financial savvy 5
    Dental habits 7 Education 13
    Oral health 30 Safety/crime 5
    Overall well-being 27 % uninsured 19
    Cost of living 49 % on Medicaid 45
    % who visited dentist in last year 17 Total score 232
