Out of the 50 states plus D.C., Wyoming ranks 38th overall. Wyoming ranked 46th overall in dental habits and care. Despite the overall low ranking, the Equality State does rank 3rd in dentists per capita and 4th in lowest percentage of adults with poor or fair oral condition.

Louisiana, Montana, Arkansas, West Virginia, and Mississippi rank the worst. Meanwhile Connecticut, Minnesota, D.C., Illinois, and Wisconsin rank as the best states for dental health.
