The cost of living in Alabama is well below the national average. Housing is the biggest factor in the cost of living difference, with the median home cost of $175,000, compared to the U.S average of $216,600.
The median home cost in Alabama is $175,000, with a low property tax rate of 3.3, well below the national average of 10.35. Cities like Birmingham are going through a housing revitalization with lots of historic buildings being transformed into beautiful condos and apartments.
There are 138 school districts in Alabama, accommodating more than 700,000 students. Alabama is also home to prestigious universities such as the University of Alabama, Auburn University, and the University of Alabama-Birmingham, which is also home to the state’s only dental school.
There are opportunities for ownership and partnership in the region with existing practice owners who have experience developing and growing dentists into successful business owners. There are also multiple Large Group Practices throughout the region, meaning an office isn’t owned by a practice owner yet, creating opportunity for new dentists to acclimate within the Aspen Dental model and determine if the path to ownership is the right fit.
As a dentist in this region, you’ll work in offices that provide a full range of dental and denture services, emergency dental and specialty dental services, as well as cosmetic dentistry services. Some examples include: crown and bridge, fillings, sore gum relief, root canal therapy, digital radiology, advanced screening for oral cancer, veneers, dental implants, tooth whitening, and the ability to become certified in offering Invisalign treatment. If a mentor is what you desire, you’ll have access to successful and experienced dentists who have been trained on how to best hone your clinical and leadership skills to help you achieve your goals.
Student Loan Reimbursement packages are also available for many locations throughout this region to help you pay down your debt faster so you can focus on what you do best: practicing dentistry.
