The consensus on wet vs dry is that there is no consensus.
There are studies that show that pure wet food diets are more prone to dental plaque buildup. Then again, the same applies to pure dry diets due to the abrasive kibble making gums tender.
Manufacturers all sell wet and dry food, and I'm sure they are both lucrative, so I wouldn't give much credence to conspiracy theories though, and just be normally skeptical about marketing like anything else.
From my own research and experiences, as long as there is an attractive water source nearby and they are using it regularly which you can easily monitor, there is no problem with some dry kibble in their diet.
Just like with us humans though, you have most just eating a balanced varied diet to those that absolutely insist on fringe diets like atkins, vegan, or raw and all have some well documented success stories, so obviously there is more than one way to skin a cat.
