Like most dentists, I first heard the name Jens Andreasen when I was a dental student in the 1970s, but little did I realize, or even imagine, back then the influence that Jens had already had on our profession and especially on the subject of dental traumatology, as well as how that influence would grow on me over the ensuing years. In the 1980s, I had the great fortune to study endodontics under the mentorship of Geoffrey Heithersay in Adelaide, Australia. Geoff and Jens were great friends. Geoff often talked about Jens with insights into his work and papers before they had been published because of their personal friendship. As I became more and more interested in dental traumatology, my admiration for Jens increased exponentially. Then, in 2007, when I was dean of the dental school in Perth, Western Australia, I invited Jens to be a visiting professor. He spent 2 wonderful weeks with our staff and graduate and undergraduate students—what an opportunity that was for everyone here! Jens was incredibly generous with his time, not just during that visit but for his entire career. He lectured all over the world and with multiple visits to many places.
