    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.

     

    Pennsylvania

    Whether they’re fans of the Stillers or the Birds, Pennsylvanians rank precisely in the middle of the pack when it comes to dental health. While Pennsylvania ranks in the top 15 for lowest number of uninsured people, that good rating is offset in our rankings by a high cost of living (#35) and a lower overall well-being ranking (#38). However, the residents of the Keystone State do rank in the top 10 for financial savviness, so at the very least that should help with the cost of living. Either way, a state responsible for cheesesteak and Yuengling is alright by us.

     

    Median income 21 Financial savvy 9
    Dental habits 25 Education 28
    Oral health 25 Safety/crime 9
    Overall well-being 38 % uninsured 14
    Cost of living 35 % on Medicaid 19
    % who visited dentist in last year 21 Total score 244
