It is an honor for me to present this interview with Professor José Rino Neto. Famous professor of the University of São Paulo (USP), José Rino Neto has built his academic career founded on solid basis at the University of São Paulo (USP), attending there from dental school (FOB-USP) until his complete training as a professor (MSc, PhD and Full Professor of FOUSP). For this reason, he is a great messenger of the works of memorable professors, such as Sebastião Interlandi and Julio Wilson Vigorito. Besides being a legitimate representative of orthodontic quality in Brazil, our interviewee has particular academic and personal characteristics worth mentioning. His career path has enabled him to create a summarized coherent understanding of ?Dentofacial Morphology?, which lead him to be the clinic coordinator of the Orthognathic Surgery graduate program at USP. We are convinced that orthodontics has gone forward under the critical eyes of this young and wise educator, who ponders over the probabilities of science, in order to achieve permanent success and demystify innovations. The intimate coexistence with his mentors has allowed him to become a skillful professor, who knows how to be strict, yet humble, kind and a true perfectionist in science and in the clinic, enabling him to build noble relationships with his students. Professor Rino kindly granted us with the following interview, where he expresses his reflections about orthodontics as one of the most significant professors in Brazil and based on his own clinic and scientific experience.
