    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.

     

    Missouri

    The Show Me State proudly shows off a respectable cost of living ranking, coming in at 11 out of 50 states. But there's a long road ahead of Missouri in terms of health and well-being: This starting-point state for the Oregon Trail is ranked 41st in overall well-being and 43rd in visits to the dentist, which may explain why they rank 32nd in dental habits. Missouri does, however, boast a top-five ranking in terms of percentage of their population on Medicaid. While it's not the worst option for dentists, it might be best to harness your oxen and take your wagon elsewhere.

     

    Median income 36 Financial savvy 50
