About the Top 100

Dental Products Report published its first “Trends in Dentistry” issue in December 1984. For almost as long, the magazine has used the December issue to showcase products that received the highest reader response over the course of the year. In an effort to make the Top 100 issue  “something to savor-not just flip through,” we decided that 100 was still meaningful, but how we got to that number had to change. Instead of focusing on 100 products overall, the list includes specific products, the articles and videos that captured your attention throughout the year, top case studies demonstrating products in use and, of course, the women and men who create the products and transform smiles. Our hope is that breaking the Top 100 into smaller Top 10 and Top 5 lists creates a more digestible format that allows you to engage more deeply with the content.
