    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.

     

    New Jersey

    The Garden State is more than just a home for New York sports teams: It's also a great state for dentists. Jumping up from an overall 16th place finish in 2015, New Jersey placed fourth for both best oral health and median income. Perhaps thanks to the regularity of tooth-loss-related escapades of the NHL's New Jersey Devils, the state ranked ninth for visits to the dentist. However, a low ranking for insured residents and abysmal dental habits dropped this small state off of the podium.

     

    Median income 4 Financial savvy 8
    Dental habits 44 Education 10
    Oral health 4 Safety/crime 2
    Overall well-being 6 % uninsured 26
    Cost of living 23 % on Medicaid 19
    % who visited dentist in last year 9 Total score 155
