Forever Smiles Publishing
She may not be a dentist... but she definitely knows what
she's talking about when it comes to kids and their smiles.
Anna Razdolsky has worked side by side with her husband, Yan, a noted Chicago area orthodontist and innovator of numerous orthodontic appliances, since his practice opened in the mid-1980s.
Anna 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 has a genuine love and appreciation for books because they weren’t always easily accessible to her. As a child growing up in Donetsk, Ukraine (former Soviet Union), not all books could be purchased effortlessly. Instead, you had to collect 100 kilos of scrap paper and turn it in for recycling. Then you would be given a coupon that was used to get a book. As children, she and several of her friends would pool their scrap paper so they could get a book to share.
Today, thorough her writing, Anna emphasizes the benefits of early orthodontic evaluation, monitoring and care to detect, prevent and eliminate early childhood oral issues and increase children’s health awareness and self-esteem at an early age. Her other reason for writing the books is because during her 30 years of working with children and raising four children of her own, she has witnessed first-hand the effects of good and bad oral health on self-esteem and self-confidence. She wanted to convey that connection through a story that children and adults might relate to.
