I have chosen to discuss the role of clinical academics in teaching and research, and this will form the main part of my presentation. I want to start however, on an historical note, summarising the impact that former Deans of Dentistry, and some Vice Chancellors, have had on the development of dentistry in the North East. Don't be too worried - I shall be reasonably discreet! Then I will discuss aspects of clinical research before commenting on the resources required for a successful research and teaching programme. In conclusion I will refer to the Adult Dental Health Surveys to demonstrate changes in oral health over the last 30 years.
