Saluting Our Readers



At every opportunity, while on business for the magazine or presenting lectures throughout North America, I have been asking questions to get a real feel for how the magazine is faring amongst you, as my peers. I can honestly and proudly report that the magazine is highly appreciated and respected for its many interesting case report clinical articles. All the comments I have heard, from literally hundreds of conversations, have confirmed directly that Dentistry Today has a strong reputation for being a reliable source of clinically relevant information. In addition to this anecdotal information gathered randomly in the field, it should be noted that Dentistry Today also contracts out professional readership studies (using scientific sampling and methodology) to assess how we are doing with our readers amongst our competing publications. Polling dentists on exactly what is being read helps analyze what interests our readers and for planning future content. If you are interested in receiving a readership study, call us at (973) 882-4700 to request a copy.

The Dentistry Today team constantly strives to produce the best clinical content with every issue. We are acutely aware that without loyal readers, any publication would cease to exist. We thank you and salute you for making us so successful!
