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.
Whether you love beer, good food, pine trees, wine or “artisan” products, Oregon has you covered. Much of its population is also “covered” (sorry) by insurance, as it ranks 18th nationwide in insurance coverage. However, the Beaver State ranks 36th in overall well-being, and 39th in cost of living, both lower numbers that brought its overall ranking down in model. The state does rank high in education level (at 12), but that’s balanced out by lower than average financial savviness and crime/safety scores.
|Median income||26||Financial savvy||38|
|Overall well-being||36||% uninsured||18|
|Cost of living||39||% on Medicaid||45|
