Why Cowtown is the Perfect Place to Build a Practice
A Complement to Dallas
Dallas and Fort Worth are often grouped together as the DFW Metroplex, but the cities are actually incredibly different. Dallas is more urban, and consequently is a more expensive place to live. Fort Worth, on the other hand, is far more laid-back. It’s a more affordable place to live, and you get all the amenities that large metro areas have to offer without the hustle and bustle of an urban area. Being in close proximity to Dallas, you can easily visit and experience Dallas’ arts, food, and culture — but make no mistake, Fort Worth has an incredible arts scene of its own. It’s a win-win.
Did you grow up watching Westerns and riding stick ponies? Then you’re going to love Fort Worth. Known as Cowtown, Fort Worth has a unique, cowboy-inspired atmosphere. And while the city has plenty of saloons and rodeos, it’s evolved in recent years to offer a more modern take on the Western aesthetic. Areas like Mule Alley include hip restaurants offering handmade cocktails and bustling breweries with endless choices of craft beers. It’s where the modern foodie scene meets old world cowboy charm.
Jobs & Population
Fort Worth has one of the largest concentrations of Fortune 500 companies and is the #5 city for job growth among the top 50 metros in the U.S., coming just behind its sister city, Dallas. Fort Worth is now the 12th largest city in the entire United States, and much of its population growth is relatively recent — it saw a 24% increase in residents in the past decade alone. With a low cost of living and endless job opportunities, it’s no wonder people are relocating to Fort Worth. And as the city grows, it needs more resources to meet its demands — including more Fort Worth dental practices.
