    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.

     

    Michigan

    That State Up North might be known for their sports and their beer (along with, you know, a world-class research institution in Ann Arbor), but it’s also one of the cheapest places to live in the country. That fact is tempered by the fact that Michigan is in the bottom 10 of overall well-being, and ranked 44 in safety and crime. Michigan does have pretty solid oral health (its rank is 11th in overall oral health and 12th in dental habits), but the state’s problems drag the Wolverine state into the middle of our rankings.

     

    Median income 33 Financial savvy 26
    Dental habits 12 Education 27
    Oral health 11 Safety/crime 44
    Overall well-being 40 % uninsured 12
    Cost of living 3 % on Medicaid 27
    % who visited dentist in last year 16 Total score 251
