      In modern academic medicine, seldom do we see longevity. Richard Haug was an exception. He served as the Consulting Editor of the Atlas of the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Clinics of North America for over 15 years, truly a phenomenal accomplishment. During this time, he oversaw numerous Atlas of the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Clinics of North America issues and worked with countless editors and contributing authors. His dedication to this publication was evident to all of us who had the opportunity to work with him, as he set the standard for what the Atlas of the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Clinics of North America is today.
      I am humbled today to introduce myself as the new Consulting Editor of the Atlas of the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Clinics, a recommendation made to the publisher by Rich prior to his untimely death this past year. I am excited and eager to take on this challenge. I look forward to working with future guest editors and contributing authors and will do my utmost to build upon the strong foundation that Dr Haug has provided.
