    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.

     

    Washington

    If you don't mind living in the shadow of a volcano, Washington State is a slightly above-average option for dentists. Ranking 18th in visits to the dentist, this coastal state in the top 10 of median income, and boasts a well-educated population with excellent oral health. Despite that oral health ranking, Washington still ranks 36th in dental habits, and has a significant population on Medicaid. Plus, the cost of living ranks near the bottom of the list, at number 37. Turns out it’s expensive to be a Seahawks fan.
