  1. Connecticut
  2. District of Columbia
  3. Massachusetts
  4. Hawaii
  5. New Jersey


  • 51. Arkansas
  • 50. West Virginia
  • 49. Louisiana
  • 48. Mississippi
  • 47. Texas

The report said, “Arkansas has the worst dental health, followed by West Virginia, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas. These states have higher numbers of residents taking days off work for dental pain, which suggests that poor dental health can have a direct impact on economic productivity.”
