Nineteen years ago, a young Jon Frankel adopted his father’s dental practice with big dreams of turning the small, family practice into one of the largest and best privately owned dental practices in the greater Toledo area. At the same time, Marie interviewed with Dr. Frankel for the financial manager position. Since then, Marie has been the longest reigning employee at Jon Frankel Dentistry. According to Dr. Frankel, “Marie and I have been through it all, but this practice would not be what it is today without her.”
When a patient walks into the Toledo office, he or she will normally find Marie sitting behind the desk immediately on their left. She will have tons of paperwork spread out in front of her, and upon first glance, one would probably think she is the busiest person at the office. However, no matter how busy she is, Marie will always look up, smile, and say “Hi.”
There is no doubt about it, Marie is definitely busy. Her job duties of financial manager include financial consultations, processing insurance claims and fees for treatment, as well as employee payroll. But, there is much more to Marie besides her years of dedication to Jon Frankel Dentistry. Originally from Youngstown, Ohio, Marie and her husband moved to Toledo so he could pursue his career opportunities. While in Toledo, Marie attended Owens Community College. Today, in her spare time, she enjoys being active. From running, to biking, to intense gym workouts, Marie enjoys the thrill of physical exercise. In fact, she has even competed in a dual-athalon, where one runs a mile, bikes fifteen miles, then runs another three miles.
Dr. Frankel is very thankful for everything Marie knows about the practice and the staff and has said, “We are lucky to have Marie on our team and I appreciate all her hard work and dedication throughout the years.”
