It was 27 years ago, during my Masters that I was introduced to this journal, then edited by Peter James. He was one of a succession of icons of Dental Public Health to have filled this role including Denis O’Mullane, Martin Downer and until December, my colleague and friend Mike Lennon. Many of us have looked up to those pioneers with respect and reverence. The journal has always been the place to look for UK based research in DPH, and now it is fulfilling that purpose for on a European scale as well. Of course, a glimpse at the contents page shows that our scope is truly global. So with all this in mind, and as sentimental as it may be, it is an enormous honour to be on the same page as that list of academics and a huge privilege to assume the position of Editor of Community Dental Health.
