    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.

     

    Virginia

    Although Virginia skulks at the end of the alphabet, it’s near the top of our list. The Mother of Presidents might also be becoming the mother of dentists, after its eighth-place ranking! Virginia's high percentage of uninsured and high cost of living may be the cause for the 22nd-place finish in overall well-being; however, high median income means plenty of money for tooth care, and Virginia finished 14th for visits to the dentist and second for best oral health.

     

    Median income 8 Financial savvy 27
    Dental habits 8 Education 7
    Oral health 2 Safety/crime 12
    Overall well-being 22 % uninsured 28
    Cost of living 28 % on Medicaid 3
    % who visited dentist in last year 14 Total score 159
