Smile if this is you: Dentistry tops U.S. News & World Report’s list of 100 jobs in greatest demand 

Annual ranking looks at median salary, future job prospects, unemployment rate and work-life balance


Dentists and dental hygienists are among the top ten jobs in U.S. News' annual ranking.

We have certain standards when it comes to our work.

Pay is just the beginning. We want to be fulfilled. We want job security. We want a chance to establish ourselves.

It takes both careful research and preparation to secure any job. U.S. News & World Report's Best Jobs of 2013 can help.

This annual ranking bases its selections on the Labor Department's predictions of the occupations that should have the greatest hiring demand from now until the year 2020.

The list looked at employment growth as well as other factors to determine a job's overall score. Those other considerations were: median salary, future job prospects, the unemployment rate, and the occupation's estimated stress level and work-life balance.
