    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.

     

    Alaska

    Juneau that Alaska is the top three for median income? It’s true! The northernmost state also ranked #18 for overall well-being ... but came in at a lowly 46th for oral health. In addition to all the caribou and ice, residents also battle the high cost of living on the tundra, as Alaska ranks 46th for cost of living and an uninsured rate that’s second highest in the nation. Fortunately, Alaska also is in the top 20 for lowest percentage of its population on Medicaid, so there is a snow-covered silver lining! 

     

    Median income 3 Financial savvy 33

    Overall well-being 18 % uninsured 49
    Cost of living 46 % on Medicaid 19
    % who visited dentist in last year 29 Total score 340
