New Mexico Dental Health

Question:

How does New Mexico’s dental health compare to other states?

Answer:

The most recent dental health survey was conducted in 2015, and did not place New Mexico on either the best or worst list. The state with the best dental health was Minnesota followed by Wisconsin and Illinois. The state with the worst dental health was West Virginia followed by Alabama and Montana. I encourage everyone to visit a dentist at least once a year. Maybe we can make the best dental health list after the next survey.
