Dr. Alison Rufo Widmann received her DMD from the Medical College of Georgia, now known as The Medical College of Georgia at Georgia Health Sciences University in Augusta, GA. Her undergraduate studies were at Augusta College and the University of Georgia. A native of Augusta, GA, Dr. Widmann began her dental career alongside her father, Dr. Raymond Rufo, in 1986. “It was a wonderful experience to practice with my father and to learn how to listen and develop loving and caring relationships with patients,” recalls Dr. Widmann.
Dr. Widmann continued the practice after her father retired 3 years later and then eventually sold the practice when her husband’s occupation relocated the family.
She completed the continuing education program with the Dawson Academy and has additional training in removable partial and complete dentures. Dr. Widmann has enjoyed extending her patient base to children. Her twenty-plus years in providing dental care have led her to the practice of Dr. Angela Hedlund. “Dentistry is a science and an art where proper function of the masticatory system produces optimum esthetics,” marvels Dr. Widmann.
Dr. Widmann enjoys cooking, teaching, and sewing. Having homeschooled her children during their elementary years of school, Dr. Widmann taught high school chemistry and health at Veritas Classical School in Alpharetta, GA. On her mission trip to Guatemala, Dr. Widmann treated patients alongside native dentists. She enjoyed serving as seamstress for the Perimeter Academy of the Arts Ballet. She is a member of Perimeter Church. She has been a volunteer in children’s ministry at Perimeter, served on the women’s retreat committee, and is passionately engaged in her Bible Study group. Her family has lived in Peachtree Corners in North River Crossing for fourteen years. Dr. Widmann has 2 children, Graham and Pearl. Graham is a recent graduate of Berry College and Pearl is attending Berry College.
