    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.

     

    Ohio

    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
    Dental habits 28 Education 34
    Oral health 8 Safety/crime 19
    Overall well-being 42 % uninsured 15
    Cost of living 18 % on Medicaid 38
    % who visited dentist in last year 26 Total score 290
