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.
Wyoming, home to Yellowstone and the best state flag in the union, took a tumble in our rankings (from 11 to 25). That’s likely because their rank in uninsured people dropped to #41, a significant fall. Additionally, Wyoming ranks just 40th in dental habits. However, the least-populated state does have some silver linings—the state has the lowest percentage of its population on Medicaid and it ranks in the top 20 for cost of living.
