Using a set of five criteria, Dental Products Report looks at each state to see how it stacks up for women in the workforce.

The dental practice may be changing into a female-dominated place, but what about the state in which that dental practice is located? Is it easier or harder to be a female professional in New York than Kansas or Maine than California? You’re about to find out.

Working with WalletHub, we’ve put together a ranking of all 50 states and which ones are great (and not-so-great) for women. To determine the rankings, we looked at the following five categories:

  • Professional opportunities
  • Work/life balance
  • Median annual earnings
  • Economic and social well being
  • Women’s healthcare
