  1. 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.

    The Maumee location has exciting news as well! To better serve they are expanding. The expansion should be complete by year’s end.

    The Maumee expansion will make scheduling appointments more convenient.

    Always Better! Serve All! Gratitude!

  3. Children study their parents, grandparents and siblings. They often “try on” the behaviors and mannerisms of those they love. Attitudes about the dentist are no exception.

    Parents watch what you say. You may be causing dental anxiety in your children. Frequently when a parent is “afraid” of the dentist that fear is passed on to the child.

    By setting a strong example for your children and teaching them proper oral hygiene, you may eliminate dental anxiety in your children. It is also important to make sure that your dentist is right for your family. Frankel Dentistry is truly “kid-friendly”. Many young patients tell ask their parents when CAN they go to the dentist next.

    Neat, clean place. Friendly and polite associates. Brittany did a great job and did everything she could to make my shy son feel comfortable. Dr Hill made sure I understood everything and gave me time to ask questions. The gentlemen that returned my call, I believe his name was Zach helped me get our appointment pushed back from 8:20 am to 10:00 am, so that I was able to sleep in a little longer on my day off. I have 5 kids, work a full time job and part time job so I greatly appreciated that flexibility. Great job team!! Keep up the good work. No complaints at all. LS

    Great experience. My kids don’t dread going to the dentist with such a friendly staff and TVs to distract them. LR

  5. National Smile Power Day

    Smile! It is good for you.

    June 15th is National Smile Power Day! Smiling is such a simple act that has a lot of health benefits. Here are some reasons why you should be smiling not just today but every day.

    Reduces stress

    You have probably heard about the negative effects that stress causes your body. Smiling is a great way to reduce that harmful feeling. By forcing yourself to smile you are telling your body to release endorphins. These are the body’s natural feel-good chemicals that tell our body to be in less pain. So the next time you are feeling stressed out or overwhelmed, just remember to smile!

    Lowers blood pressure

    As you just read, endorphins are our natural feel-good chemicals that can reduce our stress levels. When we are stressed, our blood pressure rises and can cause damage to our bodies. The physical act of smiling causing our endorphins to rise which can lower one’s blood pressure. Maintaining a healthy blood pressure level can lead to an overall healthy body. Keep smiling and keep that blood pressure down.

    Makes us attractive

    People are drawn to a natural smile. It creates an open and positive feeling that is inviting to others. When we don’t smile we can look tired or worn out, making us seem unapproachable. Put a smile on and test it for yourself.

    Makes us feel happy

    The physical act of smiling tricks our brains into thinking we are happy. The muscles involved with this action tell our brain that humor is occurring which can then create actual feelings of happiness. Even a forced smile tells our brain to be happy. So the next time you are feeling down, slap on a smile because your brain won’t know the difference.

    Smiling is a powerful tool. It can affect our mental health by sending a message to our brain and letting us know that “Everything is okay.” Our physical health can be improved with this simple action. Make smiling apart of your daily routine and see all the different benefits that it can have on your body.

    As always professional & comfortable! I need a bumper sticker that says, “I love my dentist!”

    PR

    I have been going to this office for about five years now and they always provide great care. They make sure you are comfortable and they also take your questions and concerns very seriously. I would highly recommend!

    KD

    I am a past patient visiting from out of state. I had an emergency situation and Tatyana was extremely helpful. She found an appointment for me the same day and made sure she called back to confirm. Dr. Smith was very personable and explained everything that was going on – and helped put my mind at ease.Fortunately, it was nothing but my confidence in the practice that they’re still there for me when I’m in town was completely reassured. Definitely highly recommend!

    ANON

    Kind and friendly as always! They seem to really care about you ! Gentle and thoughtful ! That’s me saying that, from a person that never liked going to the dentist . It always brought on so much anxiety till I found Dr Frankel and Karen !

    BA

    Great experience starting with the welcome phone message from Zach! We felt comfortable and valued by everyone we interacted with on your team! Thank you for your outstanding service. We look forward to our next visit.

    BW

    I can honestly say I am no longer afraid of the dentist. After many traumatic experiences at many different dental offices, I decided to try Dr. Frankel’s office because it seems to be the popular place to go. I had a filling fall out that was done by a different dentist and they got me in right away for an emergency appointment. All of the staff were so friendly, they made me feel completely comfortable and went at my pace. I went back for a cleaning and they were very thorough, and again very friendly. I went in today to have a filling replaced, this was the 6th time and third dentist to replace this filling. I was seen by Dr Smith who was so friendly, always smiling, and pulled up my xrays so he could show me what he was planning, as well as why I have been having so many problems with this tooth. He was very patient and took the time to answer all questions I had. He asked me regularly how I was doing, and told me what he was doing before doing it. I walked away feeling good about the work that I had done, and I even had some good laughs!

  8. Our Story

    Toledo is more than a great town. It is a town that supports small businesses. Dr. Sheldon Frankel opened the doors to Frankel Dentistry in 1946 knowing this was going to be home. Originally from Manhattan, New York, Dr. Frankel graduated from Ohio State Dental school and settled in with his wife, Toledo native, Ervine Frankel, a beautiful, Toledo Hospital trained registered nurse.

    The Frankels grew their family and dental practice. Eldest daughter, Karen, became a dental hygienist graduating from the four year Ohio State Dental School program. Youngest son Jonathan graduated from Ohio State Dental School in 1996 and joined Frankel Dentistry with his father’s same always better attitude.

    This is a small business that serves all by giving back twice a year with Free Dentistry and paying it forward by buying back Halloween candy and sending it to local troops. They have defined the best dental experience and continue to perfect it through high tech dentistry and continuous education for all staff from doctors to assistants to call center specialists and insurance verification employees. Frankel Dentistry wants to change lives a smile at a time.

    Call for an appointment and be guided to the best dental experience. From the minute you walk in the door until the moment you walk out, you know you and your dental health are their top priority. You will find smiling faces and hear laughter throughout the office.

    This local small business remembers it’s roots. A plaque honoring Sheldon Frankel, DDS greets all entering the Toledo location. To serve the community more there are two locations, Toledo and Maumee. Frankel Dentistry exemplifies small business done right. They are grateful to serve by encouraging dental health. You can almost imagine the late Dr. Sheldon Frankel smiling at the progress his small business has made in Toledo, Ohio.

  10. Dr. Jonathan Frankel in celebration of National Tooth Fairy Day is offering some important dental hints. Children with good oral hygiene habits are more likely to enjoy a lifetime of dental health.




    National Tooth Fairy day: February 28th is National Tooth Fairy Day and just like the magical fairy, Jon Frankel knows how important it is to educate children on good dental hygiene care. Here are some tips on how to make brushing fun for kids:

    1. Put on some music – Play your kid’s favorite song while they are brushing their teeth. They will love the music and their teeth will be happy to be clean.

    2. Play a game – Sometimes playing a game like “Simon Says” while brushing makes it more fun for children of all ages and helps them learn proper brushing and flossing techniques.

    3. Positive reinforcement – Reward your children for good dental habits. Positive reinforcement urges kids to continue to develop good behaviors. But, be careful; don’t reward them with foods that will damage their teeth, like too much juice or sugar.

    4. Let them choose – Let your child pick out his or her own toothbrush and toothpaste by doing so, you will create excitement with your children about brushing their teeth. Just be sure that the new toothbrush is ADA approved.
