    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.

     

    Wisconsin

    Wisconsin should be known for its consistency, tastiness of cheese and rankings for dental professionals: America’s Dairyland ranked seventh for the second time in a row. Despite average median income and excellent dental habits, the Badgers landed in the middle of the pack for cost of living and crime, which affected their overall rankings. Wisconsin also ranked 11th in visits to the dentist (with 70.1% of adults visiting the dentist in the past year), had a low percentage of uninsured residents and ranked 16 out of 50 for overall well-being. Milwaukee, here we come.
