Becoming a dentist in the US is not an easy task. It requires years of schooling and efforts. The US has a great dentistry market, hence a large number of students are pursuing dental care degrees in the country.

The dental care field is paying a lot to dental experts. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the employment of dentists is projected to increase at a much faster rate in the coming time. As per the predictions, there would be around 11,600 extra high salary jobs in dentistry from 2018 to 2028 with an increase of 7 percent.

Bureau of Labor Statistics has also carried out a study on dentistry and found the top ten states where dentists are earning the most money. To carry out the study, only the dentists with the detailed occupation recognized by the BLS were included.

The study found that the national average annual wage of a dentist is $175,840. It is three times the average salaries of other occupations and nearly $51,960 plus. The average salary of dentists has increased by 6.8% in the country in the last five years. It was at $164,570 in 2013. This study has also found that in some states, the average dentist salary is $200,000 while in other states it is $50,000. According to the study, people are also looking out to get a dental implant grant from most reputed dentists in the US.

Dentists in Delaware, Alaska and Rhode Island are at the top three positions with average salaries of $264,440, $259,350 and $254,190. The supply and demand of customers are influencing the salaries of the dentists in these three states. There is less income tax in these states which is allowing them to earn well while practicing dentistry there.

Rural America needs help with Affordable Housing

America has been facing the issue of affordable housing in major cities and fast-growing urban areas for so many years now, that we almost take it for granted. But what we did not see coming, as a nation, was the same problem sprouting in rural America. This is what is going on, right now, as people from all financial spectrums struggle to find a house that they can afford. Here is why and which solutions should be looked at.

Not enough Jobs, Education and Health Care Availability

What explains housing difficulties is the same as in all other economic sectors: The offer is not sufficient for the demand. And why is that, in rural America? The answer is simple: There are not enough jobs to be handed out in these parts. Also, the children lack sufficient education, and the people are not provided with good health care facilities. Therefore, you don’t find contractors that want to build more homes to invest in the future, in these regions, even though there are more people living there, every year.

Also, most of the houses that exist need to be renovated. They require new facade systems, in order to become more energy efficient. The people that live in these parts, barely make enough to make ends meet, and they have to pay higher energy bills, simply because they can’t afford new aluminium windows and doors, that would greatly reduce their costs. New sustainable materials need to be added outside their walls, to protect their home from high or low temperatures outside. But instead, they are simply fighting each other to find a house that they can live in, at an inflated price, and that won’t even provide them sufficient protection in the warmest and coolest months of the year.

Public Investment is required to start the Process

Money is at the core of the problem. To built more houses, or to renovate the ones that already exist in rural America, a large investment will need to be made. Since it is clear that private owners are scared to enter into this rebuilding of the land by themselves, the different levels of governments need to envision new help plans that will make all this possible. But it isn’t the only investment they must make.

Today, wages are not growing as fast as they were before. We find ourselves in uncertain times, thanks to the COVID-19 crisis and the current war going on in Ukraine. Having a larger part of the population to buy a house, is simply impossible in view of these issues. And yet, this is exactly what rural America needs. Therefore, young adults need to be helped, in some ways, in order to create a larger group of potential home buyers. This will help kick-start the market of housing in rural America, which hopefully will create a dynamic that will continue on, with wealthier individuals investing in construction, in these areas.

Affordable housing has become a necessity in rural America. Otherwise, small towns will continue to disappear. This is not a long-term solution for a growing America, that wants to lead by example.
