Hawaii is very interesting – With a Median Income Rank of 6, and many people to a house (ranking 2nd), Hawaii certainly isn’t going anywhere. Hawaii’s current growth ranks at 18, while its projected growth moves up to 8. So despite the saturation among dentists and specialists, Hawaii still remains a viable spot to own a dental practice.
