“Professor Ambrosina Michelotti is one of the most important researchers in the field of Orthodontics, Temporomandibular Disorders and Orofacial Pain. I’m following her publications since I first read the revision article about the role of Orthodontics in Temporomandibular Disorders, published in 2010 on the Journal of Oral Rehabilitation, which helps to elucidate in a very didactic way the concepts based on scientific evidence that link these two areas. As I am involved on the same field of research, I became very enthusiastic of her work and competence. When in 2011 we had the opportunity to meet at a congress of the European Academy of Orofacial Pain, I had the chance to face another and even more important characteristic of Professor Ambrosina: her sympathy, happiness and cordiality. Since then, we have met in many congresses and recently, in last June, Professor Ambrosina attended the Sociedade Brasileira de Disfunção Temporomandibular e Dor Orofacial (SBDOF) meeting in São Paulo, where she lectured for more than 700 participants. I would like to highlight that Professor Ambrosina was one of the members of the team of professionals responsible for updating the Diagnostic Criteria for Temporomandibular Disorders (DC/TMD) last September in Newark, USA. And finally, I would like to thank the Dental Press Journal of Orthodontics for the opportunity of coordinating this interview, and also the professionals who contributed to this text. I am sure that DPJO readers will appreciate this interview, due to the broad scientific and clinical experience of this great lady of Orthodontics, TMD and Orofacial Pain. Enjoy it!
