Vice-Chancellor, Deans, colleagues and visitors, it is a very great privilege to be invited to present the 50th Founders' and Benefactors' lecture. When I arrived in Newcastle as a lecturer in preventive dentistry in 1972, children aged 5 years living in Northumberland had an average of six bad teeth per child. Now it is much less and it is the purpose of today's lecture to describe the reasons for this success, but also, to indicate that the battle is far from won - the preventable is not yet prevented.
