Dr. Razdolsky's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Razdolsky "It could be said that Dr. Yan Razdolsky was destined for a career in dentistry. With a father, aunt, and cousin who were dentists, it came as no shock to his family when he, and later his younger brother, entered the dental field. “I guess you could say I grew up in the field,” Dr. Razdolsky says. “It’s contagious.” Since the late 1980s, Dr. Razdolsky has steadily left his mark on the orthodontic field through innovate treatment, a series of patents and hundreds of instructional lectures to fellow orthodontists from around the world. The most appealing aspect of orthodontics is the gratification he feels at the end of each day. “You’re really changing people’s lives with orthodontic treatment,” Dr. Razdolsky says. “A smile is a first impression, and you never get a second chance at a first impression.” Dr. Razdolsky takes pride in knowing his patients will carry that signature for the rest of their lives. And appointments when those braces come off are big events. “That makes it all worthwhile,” he says. Born in Moscow, Russia, Dr. Razdolsky immigrated to the United States as a teenager with his family in search of political asylum. It was February 1977, and Dr. Razdolsky had just graduated high school. The Razdolskys moved to Chicago to be near family who also had emigrated from Russia. He earned a bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering from the University of Illinois. Afterward, he was accepted to the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry, which he graduated from in 1985. While in dental school, Dr. Razdolsky took some orthodontic courses, which really spoke to him, perhaps due to his engineering background. Orthodontics allowed him to apply his knowledge of mechanics, physics, and forces. By 1987, he had earned a graduate degree in orthodontics. Dr. Razdolsky went on to work for a very famous orthodontist on the west side of Chicago. “Prior to working there, I didn’t think that many of the procedures he was using were even possible,” Dr. Razdolsky recalls. “I spent six months there and learned more than I had in two years of orthodontic residency.” Dr. Razdolsky recalls seeing his mentor use a variety of innovative techniques from Europe. “Only years later did I understand how great he was,” Dr. Razdolsky says. “It takes years of continuing education courses just to learn those techniques, and I got to see them on real patients.” Many of those techniques considered innovative back then are mainstream today. That inspired Dr. Razdolsky to develop his own techniques. He held five patents on orthodontic techniques in the 1990s. Dr. Razdolsky is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics. His professional affiliations include the American and European Associations of Orthodontists, World Federation of Orthodontists, the Midwestern and Illinois State Societies of Orthodontists, the American Dental Society, the Illinois and Chicago Dental Societies, Academy of General Dentistry, and the Alpha Omega International Dental Fraternity."

Patient Comments (3)

Since I left the office, I couldn't wait to post a review. Yan is the second orthodontist I've visited and I was shocked at how much more knowledgeable he was than the first one. I wish I had known of Dr. Razdolsky before I got braces years ago, because I would have absolutely come to him instead....more

I personally didn't like the work Dr.Razdolsky did .When I got my braces off , He didn't care very much when He polished and shaped my teeth. Everyone that sees my teeth tells me my Dr. didn't do a good job since Dr. Razdolsky didn't take enough time to shape my teeth to make them look even.I...more

Dr. Razdolsky is personally involved with each patient's treatment. My son, now 17, just had his braces removed and he is eager to show off his beautiful smile for the first time in years. My 13 year old daughter is not quite done yet, but the results are obvious already. If your kids or you are...more
