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.
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.
