Wisconsin ranks as the 2nd best state with overall dental health. It ranked 3rd in dental habits and care, and 7th in oral health. The only state to rank higher than Wisconsin was Illinois which landed in the #1 spot.

The Quad Cities Has Great Oral Health

To many people's disbelief, the Quad Cities actually has really great oral hygiene and health.

Just a few spots down from Wisconsin and Illinois, Iowa lands as the state with the 12th best dental health on WalletHub's list. Sure, some of us need to visit the dentist more often than others but that's the case everywhere. Some people also don't have the money or insurance to do so.

If you start paying attention to other's teeth in Iowa, you'll notice they aren't as bad as you assume.

Toothless Wonders Live In The South

It's not a stereotype if it's true, right?

The states with the worst dental health are primarily in the South or the states you would think are at the bottom.

Florida, Kentucky, Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi take up the bottom 10. Arkansas is the state with the worst dental health. No surprise there.

You Could Own The Greatest House In The State Of Wisconsin

There's a home in Wisconsin that everyone in the state would call the best house on the market. The house is reasonably priced for the amount of money you could get out of it. Why does this house sound like a gold mine? Because it sits and looks directly at the heart of Title Town U.S.A., the legendary Lambeau Field, the home of the Green Bay Packers.
