Iowa is the best U.S. state for children's dental health in 2019, according to a new report from personal finance website WalletHub
. WalletHub ranked all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia based on 33 indicators of oral and overall health.
To rank the states, WalletHub weighed 10 oral health metrics, including the share of children with excellent or very good teeth, cost of dental treatment in the state, and the number of dentists per capita. Iowa came out as the No. 1 state for children's dental health, jumping five spots since WalletHub's last analysis in 2018.
