An analysis by WalletHub finds that the dental health of Connecticut residents is better than all but three other states (Wisconsin, Illinois, and Minnesota) and the District of Columbia. We rank third on oral health but tenth on dental habits and care, which is confusing but far better than the converse. The analysis compared states across 26 metrics. Connecticut was highest among states in the percent of adults who have visited a dentist in the past year and third for adolescents. We were tied for the highest dental treatment costs in the US and tied for lowest in the percent of adults with dental pain in the last year.
