    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.

     

    Idaho

    Idahoans presumably enjoy a never-ending supply of potatoes and one of the cheapest places to live, in terms of cost of living—the state ranks sixth in the nation! But, that’s combined with a ranking in the bottom 10 of median income. The Gem State does rank 12th in oral health, but it has a large population of uninsured people and ranks low in financial savviness. But hey … potatoes are delicious.

     

    Median income 40 Financial savvy 35
    Dental habits 23 Education 33
    Oral health 12 Safety/crime 18
    Overall well-being 24 % uninsured 39
    Cost of living 6 % on Medicaid 19
    % who visited dentist in last year 30 Total score 279
