"I have several years in office administration including county schools and in a large real estate office. What I like best about working at Rider Orthodontics is watching our patients grow up during their time here. They are at the age to change quickly and become young adults. I enjoy good books, classical music, water sports and playing trivia. My favorite quote:  From a movie I just saw, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel: "Everything will be OK in the end, if it is not OK, it is not the end."



Rose Vaughn, Treatment Coordinator:

Rose has been the Heart of our “R Team” for over thirty-three years. At your very first appointment you will meet Rose. She knows everything about everything related to orthodontics and she will give you her undivided attention so feel free to ask questions about appointments, treatment and financial arrangements.

"I came to work for Dr. Rider directly from the CPCC dental assisting program. Dr. Rider was participating in the CPCC program which allowed the dental assistants to visit his office. I fell in love with his office and staff and still love it today! What I like best about working at Rider Orthodontics is Dr. Rider is a great leader and teacher. He took a chance on an 18 year old kid and developed me into the person I am. He has allowed me to learn any aspect of the office that I have desired. Our patients and staff are like family and friends to me, so coming to work is fun! I love helping Dr. Rider create beautiful smiles :-) I have been married to Gary Vaughn for 34 years. We have a 24 year old son, Clayton. I enjoy Facebook, music, working in our yard, bird watching, and taking care of our home. My favorite quote: "A government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul." (author unknown)
