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.
Whether you prefer mountains or beaches, Tar Heels or Blue Devils, North Carolina has something for you—unless you're looking for high median incomes or insured rates, which are startlingly low. People in North Caroline do seem to care about dental habits (they rank 14th) but that doesn’t transition to overall oral health, where they rank 31. That could be because they also rank 31st in annual dental visits.
