Our Mission

The mission of DENTAL ADVISOR is to provide the dental profession with evidence-based and clinically relevant information on dental restorative products, infection control products and dental equipment. DENTAL ADVISOR reports objective clinical evaluations, product comparisons, comprehensive long-term clinical performance studies, and unbiased laboratory test results.


Dr. John Farah and Dr. John Powers created DENTAL ADVISOR in 1983, and the first issue was published in 1984. It was the first science-based publication of its kind, featuring product ratings, long-term clinical information, and comparative product tables. Since its early days, DENTAL ADVISOR has continued the tradition of challenging dental professionals to learn and provide suggestions regarding products and equipment, ultimately improving the level of products and care available to the patient.
