    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.

     

    Oregon

    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
    Dental habits 30 Education 12
    Oral health 24 Safety/crime 35
    Overall well-being 36 % uninsured 18
    Cost of living 39 % on Medicaid 45
    % who visited dentist in last year 24 Total score 327
