Dr. Anna Refai was born and raised in Madison, WI. She became interested in science and how things worked in the body after a traumatic sledding accident broke her mandible when she was just five years old. Dr. Anna Refai pursued a degree in biology at The University of Chicago and graduated with honors in 2003.
Pursuing her love for science and research, Dr. Anna Refai spent her summers researching neurobiology at the Intramural Research Program (NIH) and attending Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine. In 2009, she completed her General Practice Residency (GPR) at the VA Medical Center in Cleveland, OH. There, she learned how to place dental implants and take care of medically complex patients.
She and her husband finally settled in Atlanta, GA, where they had three amazing daughters. After thirteen years of practicing dentistry, Dr. Anna Refai ultimately fulfilled her dream of having her own comprehensive dental practice that provides relationship-based, anxiety-free services. Magnolia Dentistry is her life-long passion and dream.
Dr. Refai loves to run, listen to dental podcasts, and practice Ashtanga yoga during her spare time. She and her husband love traveling and spending time with their three girls.
