It depends on how much other work experience you have, besides the dental. If you have a lot of managerial work experience, then forgo the dental information. But if you don’t, your CV might look empty. Make a list of the reasons to include the dental work info (organisational skills, work ethic, whatever) and try to see if your CV without that info conveys those skills and qualifications. 

If you have an address for where you will live in the state you’ll applying in, put that one. Otherwise, explain that you are planning to move. Otherwise, they’ll assume that you are willing to re-locate only if you don’t find a job in your current state, and that’ll make you less attractive as an applicant because there’s a greater chance that you won’t accept the job if they offer it to you (I’m telling you this from experience).

Good luck with the job search!!

Customize your resume for each position or type of position you are going to apply for.  You can bring in the dental work history if there are skill sets that cross over but it’s not necessary unless it would leave time ‘gaps’ in employment.  As a hiring manager – I hate gaps & I know most management typesI encounter do as well.  As for address, use something local if you can in the new town or include a cover letter to explain your plans.
