    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

    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.

     

    Median income 17 Financial savvy 18
    Dental habits 40 Education 25
    Oral health 35 Safety/crime 17
    Overall well-being 17 % uninsured 41
    Cost of living 16 % on Medicaid 1
    % who visited dentist in last year 28 Total score 255
