It is obvious the staff at Frankel Dentistry love what they do. The smiles, the laughter and the high standard of care reflect on something deeper. A vocation toward patient care and a commitment to spread the word that Healthy Mouths promote Healthy Bodies.
Our question was simple, how did you choose a career in dentistry?
Marie started her career path in banking. Her education shows a strong accounting background specializing in savings and loan. Her career took a switch to dentistry when she was in her mid-twenties. She started out in her home town but marriage brought her to Toledo, Ohio. Her interview with Sheldon Frankel was nearly two decades ago. Youngtown’s loss was our gain and she has been managing Jon Frankel Dentistry in a variety capacities ever since. Maries says she applied for a job and was hired. It seems dentistry found her.
Melissa Neiderhouse, D.A., E.F.D.A., B.S.
Mel has a genetic predisposition for Dentistry. Two of her uncles are dentists and both suggested she become a Dental Assistant. After one year of college she began training as a Dental Assistant. She didn’t stop there. She continued on to become an E.F.D.A. and recently completed her Bachelor of Science degree. After 15 years she continues to enjoy all aspects of dentistry but finds smile transformations particularly gratifying. By the way Mel knows really knows smiles. After hours she is a Cheerleading Coach.
Debbie Oliver, R.D.H., Hygiene Manager
As a young mother Deb was concerned about her daughter, Danielle. Danielle had a dental disorder known as Amelogenesis Imperfecta. The enamel on her permanent teeth did not form properly. As Deb did research on her daughter’s condition she found she was interested in a Dental Career. She checked out the Dental Hygiene Program at Owens Community College and knew right away it would be an ideal career for her skill set. She thanks her daughter Danny and Jon Frankel (the only dentist she has or would ever work with) for the ideal career path.
