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.
The good news? Arkansas is one of the cheapest states to live in, ranking fourth in cost of living. The bad news? Pretty much everything else… The Natural State comes in dead last for best oral health, safety and crime, and financial savviness, and ranks 49th in median income and overall well-being. At least you can still take pride in your national parks!
