    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.

     

    California

    Prospects in the Golden State look bright, as it ranks number nine in median income and fifth in overall well being ... at least until you look at the exorbitant cost of living and low oral health ranking. While you may be blinded by the stars in Tinsel Town, you'd also have to be blind to not cringe at Cali's near-bottom-of-the-barrel ranking for percentage of patients on Medicaid. At the very least, the people of California can take solace in their high ranking for financial savviness!

     

    Median income 9 Financial savvy 12
    Dental habits 34 Education 29
    Oral health 45 Safety/crime 23
    Overall well-being 5 % uninsured 25
    Cost of living 48 % on Medicaid 25
    % who visited dentist in last year 27 Total score 305
