Aim and objective: A number of research projects are done and papers are published in different disciplines. To evaluate their scholarly effect, a bibliometric study is very useful. The present study is aimed at identifying and characterizing the 100 most cited articles on dental stem cells. Materials and methods: The Science Citation Index-Expanded tool of Scopus database was used to prepare a list and record the 100 most cited articles on dental stem cell studies on October 15, 2019. Assessments of the articles were done to note down the general details and facts required for bibliometric and citation studies. The software named VOSviewer was used to develop and record a network of collaboration among countries, authors, and keywords. Results: The articles were published from 2002 to 2017. The most highly cited article received 333 citations, whereas the least was cited 22 times (mean citations 65.76 ± 57.28). A total of 68 journals were involved in publication of the studies on dental stem cells, which were mostly cited. The United States was leading in publication of articles (n = 32) and China was second with 15 publications. The inspection of the document types revealed that there were 59 original research and 39 review papers. A total of 62 out of the 100 most influential articles were funded by 41 organizations. Seoul National University (South Korea) affiliated the most documents (n = 8). Conclusion: This citation analysis gives an overall general view of the progress and the different kinds of research projects happening in the field of dental stem cell studies. Clinical significance: The top 100 list selected in this present study will benefit the researchers and scientists in marking the significant areas of research in the field, which will guide them in their upcoming studies and research works.
