It was with great honor and pleasure that I accepted the invitation to coordinate this interview with Dr. Vaden, for whom I have a deep admiration, especially for his work as a clinician and educator. His clinic life started in 1972 in his office in Cookeville, TN, where, he has been attending children and adults. Over the years, he has been trying to pass his orthodontic experience through more than 120 articles published, as either an author or co-author of 10 chapters of textbooks, in addition to more than 200 lectures carried out in several countries, including Brazil, where he has been five times. He is married to Dr. Beverly Hedgepeth and has a daughter, Meg, a lawyer in New York. He and Beverly live in a farm in the area of Buck Mountain, Vanderbilt, TN, where he raises Angus cattle. In his spare time, he works the land with a John Deere tractor that he had repaired by himself. Along with well known professors we could prepare questions that express the brilliant opinions of our interviewer on several topics related to contemporary Orthodontics. Have a nice reading!
