The purpose of this article is to share with the dental research community milestones and creative insights that make dental research what it is today. We have been involved in dental research for some 40 years and have been fortunate enough to see astounding advances in the field of craniofacial biology. Each of us has been influenced by different mentors during our careers and we have pursued different but complementary research initiatives. Now, an exciting new international collaboration is underway using the unique materials available in Adelaide and Oulu and innovative 2D and 3D imaging techniques for data acquisition in Liverpool. Together we are developing new study designs, recording new dental phenotypes and applying novel aetiological modelling methods, utilising association and linkage approaches. In this paper we review some key influences and achievements that have led to our present collaboration, set out plans for the future and offer to collaborate with others.
