    If thinking of the dentist sends chills to your bones, know that you are not alone. Dental fear and anxiety is a common phobia among Americans. Dr. Frankel has put together 4 tips to help you overcome your dental anxiety.

    1.) Schedule a Consultation

    Meeting with Dr. Frankel, another doctor, or a hygienist without his or her surgical mask on will help build a more trusting relationship and help ease the anxiety of visiting the dentist.

    2.) Ask Questions

    When it comes to your dental health and well being, no question should go unanswered. Knowing the answers to your questions will take away much of the fear you have about certain procedures and allow you to feel more comfortable in the chair.

    3.) Bring a Family Member Who Will Help You Relax

    No one wants to do something that makes them afraid alone. Having someone near that you trust goes along way when conquering your fears. If you can’t bring someone with you, try listening to music or mediating while in the chair. This may help you lose focus on what you are anxious about.

    4.) Ask for sedation.

    Don’t forget, a healthy mouth promotes a healthy body. Taking care of your small dental problems now will decrease your risk of more complicated issues in the future and help eliminate your phobia. At your next appointment, let us know if there is anything we can do to specially care for your dental needs.

    Louise Kahle, Owner of Sassy Boomer GIrls

    23 years ago, Dr. Jon Frankel walked into the bank and walked out with a life long patient, Louise Kahle. Louise had just moved to the Toledo area and was working at the bank. She was in need of a new family dentist, and Dr. Frankel became that man. To this day, Louise is a dedicated Frankel patient and loves the fact that she even has Dr. Frankel’s personal cell phone number in case she ever has a dental emergency.

    But Louise Kahle’s life took a new turn 12 years ago when she left her job in the corporate banking world and began helping women discover their “sass.” “Before starting Sassy Boomer Girls, I was always doing what I thought I had to do,” said Louise. “Now I am doing what I want to do and having so much more fun.”

    A self-proclaimed “late bloomer,” Louise continues to discover more confidence daily. From this confidence, she developed sass. According to Louise, “Sassiness is a way of life. It can be found deep within one’s core. It eludes joy.” Once found, women must discover a way to express their sassiness to the world. One way is through personal style and not caring what anyone else thinks. “Heck, that is why I dyed my hair blue,” said Louise.

    At Sassy Boomer Girls, Louise’s mission is to get women to “look as good as they feel.” She believes that every woman’s closet tells a lot about who she is and how she feels about herself. Therefore, Louise’s passion is to help women update their closets to display their confidence and inner sass. But why not hear it from Louise herself in this quick video.

    Louise recently expanded her services to include color analysis, which allows women to know which colors flatter their skin tone and a small jewelry line. More information about Louise and her services or to book an appointment can be found on her website www.sassyboomergirls.com

     

  4. Beachbody, the company the brings you P90X, Insanity, and Turbo Kick, has a Frankel smile. That’s right, Angie Green, one of the trainers that you will see on many of the videos of Charlene Johnson brings her Frankel smile on set.

    Angie Green

    Angie Green began her life as a fitness instructor while in college at BGSU. Upon graduating with her Masters, Angie accepted a position at the University of Toledo REC Center in 2001. However, it was when she decided that she wanted to work for Charlene Johnson that her life took an amazing new turn. After an extensive tryout, Angie was selected to be a member of the demo team for TurboKick.

    After Angie had her son, she needed a new family dentist. That is when she joined the Frankel Dentistry family. “I love it at Frankel Dentistry,” she said. “I am very pleased with they treat my son and take care of all our needs.”

    Angie, however, is beginning a new adventure. Being a Beachbody trainer, means there is a lot of traveling. In fact, not too long ago, Angie traveled to train the Toronto BlueJays in an Insanity workout.  Therefore, Angie is no longer working at UT. Today, her new adventure is focusing on her Beachbody career not only as a star of the videos but also a coach.
