When it comes to using Topaz programs, there is no right or wrong order. It is entirely up to you how and when to incorporate Topaz into your workflow. In general, I would encourage anyone to make sure their image is as “clean” as possible before making any color, detail or special effects adjustments. This means using DeNoise and / or DeJPEG to remove any noise or image artifacts first, so you know that your subsequent image adjustments will be applied to a clean image.  After that, which program(s) you use would depend on the final vision you have for your image. One thing that I typically do, which may work for you as well, is to use Topaz Detail last, adjusting any final intricate details. And remember, you can also run the same filter twice on an image to create stronger effects or lower the opacity / fade to lessen the effects.  If you are using multiple filters and know exactly what you want for that image, I suggest making a duplicate of your background layer and applying all of your filter adjustments to that new layer.
