IDT Readers’ Choice Technology Awards

Showcasing popular technology products from the past year

As CAD/CAM dentistry becomes more widespread, the number of exciting and useful products on the market continues to increase. As you make your purchasing decisions from among the plethora of options, it could be useful to see what products your peers have found interesting.

With this in mind, every July IDT recognizes technology products that drew the most engagement from our audience over the past year. We identified 30 products based on Reader Service Card and other data from throughout the year, and created an online poll to determine the 10 winners of the 2016 Readers’ Choice Technology Awards.

A total of 771 votes were recorded over a three-week period at the end of May. The winners, in no particular order, are presented here.
