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.
Though the Cavs and the Indians have given Ohioans reasons to hope (the less one thinks about the Bengals and Browns, the better), Ohio doesn't fare very well in our rankings. That is because the Buckeye state ranks very low (38) in percentage of the population on Medicaid and even lower (42) in overall well-being. The state does demonstrate excellent oral health at #8, but factors like lower median income and education level pull down Ohio’s overall ranking.
|Median income||34||Financial savvy||28|
|Overall well-being||42||% uninsured||15|
|Cost of living||18||% on Medicaid||38|
|% who visited dentist in last year||26||Total score||290|
