By the way, who’s a dentist’s favorite patient…a hockey player! It is not just the sports guards. It is an exciting sport with exceptional athletes. What could be more fun?
This past weekend, Dr. Frankel and Dr. Puhl took their group to enjoy one of Toledo’s best activities; a Toledo Walleye hockey game! Spending time with CatTrick and Spike brought this dental office together. Doctors, healthcare providers and staff filled an entire section with the best smiles. Taking a group of dental employees to a hockey game might seem strange, right? But not to Dr. Frankel. Supporting and enjoying the Toledo area and each other is what this dental practice is all about.
At Frankel Dentistry, they consider their employees part of their family. This bond is seen by the get-togethers organized by Dr. Frankel and Dr. Puhl. Past activities have included kayaking, ax-throwing at Axe 419, staff dinners, and attending ProMedica’s Summer Concert Series featuring Diana Ross.
The time they spend outside of the office is always fun. They eat. They laugh. They dance. They smile. They celebrate. But most importantly, they have a good time. The fun times and stories are shared with families and friends. Frankel Dentistry has been making great memories since 1946.
Have you been thinking about a smile makeover, but don’t know where to start. What about veneers?
Did you know that Dr. Frankel has changed the lives of hundreds of people with a smile makeover using veneers! He is truly Toledo’s smile makeover expert.
What are Veneers?
Veneers are beautifully crafted, custom-made porcelain sheaths that restore crooked, malformed, or damaged teeth, allowing for a balanced, enhanced and unique smile while restoring strength and functionality.
Many people consider veneers because they provide a natural-looking tooth appearance; gum tissue tolerates porcelain well; porcelain veneers are stain-resistant; the color of a porcelain veneer can be selected such that it makes dark teeth appear whiter; veneers offer a conservative approach to changing a tooth’s color and shape because they generally don’t require the extensive shaping before the procedure that crowns do, yet offer a stronger, more aesthetic alternative. Call today to schedule a complimentary consultation to learn more.
Why Frankel Dentistry?
Placement of such small, porcelain materials takes much skill, precision and artistry of a well trained cosmetic dentist, like Frankel Dentistry. With his expertise, he will quickly be able to fix such problems as worn enamel as well as chipped, discolored, misaligned, irregularly shaped, cracked, or uneven teeth, giving you a beautiful, natural-looking smile that you would like to show off to all your friends and family.

A Toledo, Ohio dentist shows thanks by giving. Every year for the last 8 years Frankel Dentistry has opened their doors the Wednesday before Thanksgiving offering free dental care on a first come, first seen basis.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year for a Toledo area dentist…Free Dental Day! On November 27th, the day before Thanksgiving, this Toledo office opens its doors to those in need of dental care free of charge. The event started about eight years ago when Dr. Frankel came up with the idea to give back to his community through his passion for dentistry. “No one should miss out on Thanksgiving because of dental pain, which is why we invite those in need of dental care to take part in this opportunity,” says Dr. Frankel. This is our practice’s holiday tradition.
“It is a real honor to be able to help those in need of dentistry who may be a little down on their luck,” said our office manager Zach Duckworth. This year’s Free Dental Day was a huge success! We were able to see 83 patients with a total cost of over $36,000 of treatment. This event wouldn’t be possible without our wonderful staff who all volunteer their time to be apart of this day.
The doctors, healthcare providers and staff feel extremely blessed to have this wonderful opportunity to give back to our community through dentistry. Changing lives a smile at a time is this practice’s passion. “I am so pleased I got up so early this morning because I met everyone I needed to meet to have my smile back!” said a patient. “I am so happy and I feel so much better already. Thank you guys so much. You’re all angels!” she continued.
Patients participating in Frankel’s Free Dental Day started lining up at 3:30 a.m. Everyone was thankful to Tim Horton’s located on Monroe Street for donating coffee.
We all know that children may get money from the tooth fairy, but did you know that children can receive candy from a dentist? That’s right! During the month of November, kids trade in their Halloween candy for cash during our Annual Candy Buyback. Frankel Dentistry has been offering this opportunity for over ten years. Dr. Frankel wants to remind kids that while Halloween is a fun holiday, eating too much sugar can lead to cavities and unhealthy habits. Candy, as well as hurting children’s teeth, can lead to hyperactivity and weight gain. Our Annual Candy Buyback is an opportunity not only to educate young children on the importance of oral health, but it is a way to promote the significance of giving back and show what power a community has.
Every year, Dr. Frankel donates all the treats that have been collected to a local group to be sent to Toledo troops serving overseas. This year, we collected over a ton of candy for our troops! This large donation would not be possible without the help of our wonderful community. Frankel Dentistry would like to say a big thank you to the residents of Elmore, Ohio who brought in over 20 pounds of candy and collected no money. Their generosity reflects our shared value to serve all. We are grateful to all those have donated candy to our Halloween Candy buyback. It is hard to believe that this has been our annual event for over 10 years. That’s a lot of sweet community support!
We would also like to highlight a few of our wonderful children who not only brought in 10 pounds of candy but added a personal touch to their donation. A young boy wrote a letter to be sent to the troops with his large donation. In the letter, the gentleman sends thanks to the troops with his kind words and sweet treats. It reads, “Two Twix for both of your fighting arms, a big Sour Patch Kids for your power, Sweet Tarts for your boldness, and a Reeses Cup for your sweetness.” Talk about a sweet kid.
Next year if you are in the Toledo, Ohio area and have excess Halloween Candy. Drs. Frankel and Puhl have a sweet solution. Donate your candy!

In the past, she has been a pharmaceutical sales representative and a personal shopper. Her vocation has always been serving through dentistry. Once she became part of the Frankel family, it was meant to be. She began her Frankel Dentistry career by reminding patients of their recare and later by providing dental patient care as a dental hygienist. Currently, she serves by delivering dental education in treatment consultations and through marketing. When asked why she has stayed so long, Pamela was quick to answer, “I have always enjoyed caring for others. Dental health promotes general health. Dentistry is a perfect fit. It is always getting better through either science, art, psychology or business. Most importantly, I was so impressed by Dr. Sheldon Frankel. He was not only an exceptional dentist but an incredible person as well. He shared his caring wisdom with patients and staff alike. I am still at Frankel Dentistry because of him.”
The celebration was held at Toledo’s Beirut Restaurant. The back room was filled with Frankel Dentistry and Frankel & Puhl staff. It was meaningful and fun to see the woman dedicated to communication become speechless. The night was filled with positive words from staff and Drs. Jon Frankel and Amber Puhl.

Everyone knows the importance of starting the school year off right. Picking out the right backpack, getting all the school supplies, and selecting the right lunch box is already on your children back to school list, but what about a back to school smile? Scheduling a trip to the dentist should be on every parent’s summer to-do list. This will not only help your child get the best and healthiest smile but a trip to the dentist office also acts as a reminder of how important oral health is. Taking proper care of your teeth can be hard for children but educating them from an early age will help them ace their oral exam. Here are some tips on how you can help your children’s smile be the best it can be.
Regular Dentist Trips – Maintaining regular dentist visits is important for many reasons. Dental hygienists will keep their mouth healthy and happy. Your dentist will be able to catch or prevent early signs of trouble. They will look for any signs of mouth, head, or neck cancer. Dentists will also be able to give you the best advice for your kid’s specific needs.
Pack the Right Snack – Parents know the importance of a healthy snack choice for their children but educating them on their diet is also important. When it comes time to pack a school lunch, try giving them a swing at it. Letting your kids pack their own lunch can be very rewarding to them. Giving them healthy options to pick from will give your kids a better understanding of what a healthy snack should look like. Avoid any sugary items that could harm their teeth.
Make Brushing Fun! – Brushing your teeth twice a day is very important. Kids should be brushing their teeth every morning and night for at least two minutes. Play a song while your children brush. That way you know they are reaching that two-minute target. Let your kids pick out their tooth care products. Picking their favorite color and favorite flavor can get them excited about brushing their teeth.
Frankel Dentistry has been serving the community through dentistry since 1946 with an always better philosophy. The doctors and staff consider it a privilege to offer the highest standards of dental care.
