Anna Razdolsky

Operational Manager

Most of Anna’s work is done behind the scenes. Her duties include overseeing the smooth operation of delivering beautiful smiles, handling the budget, recruiting and training, inspiring our personnel, and of course, keeping the doctor on his toes! Anna’s favorite thing about orthodontics is the smiles that are born from the science! What she likes best about working with her husband is his infinite eagerness and passion toward his work, patients, and staff. Anna is always very enthusiastic, and like Dr. Razdolsky, always has a glowing positive attitude, with a “can do” approach. She is proud to be part of a family practice that utilizes and constantly updates its technologies and procedures to stay in the forefront of orthodontic care.

Anna started this practice with her husband, Dr. Razdolsky, in 1985. She has a bachelor’s degree in math and computer science from the University of Illinois in Chicago, and started the Master of Engineering and Management program at Northwestern University. Before beginning the practice with her husband, she worked for Baxter Pharmaceutical Corporation in Deerfield, and at RR Donnelly & Sons Printing Company in Chicago. At these positions, she developed her talent for designing computer software and enhanced her marketing and management skills.

Anna played a major role in the global diffusion of the Distraction Osteogenesis technique and the promotion of the Razdolsky Osteodistraction Devices (ROD appliances).

Anna has been honored by the U of I President’s Council with an Award as a Lifetime Member. She also received the Parent of the Year Award at Montessori School of Lake Forest for her commitment to school and volunteer work. 

She loves kids and is committed to educating everyone about the importance of oral health. That’s why she founded Forever Smiles Publishing in 2016 to help children and their parents understand the value of oral care and orthodontic treatment through storytelling.

Anna was born in Ukraine, and has lived in the Chicago area since 1977. During her free time, she enjoys doing volunteer work at schools, supporting sport teams, traveling, reading, dancing, and most importantly, spending time with her family.
