  1. One Day. Eight Dentists. Free Dental Care in Toledo, Ohio.


    Frankel Dentistry

     

    Thanksgiving is a day of gratitude. Family and friends gather together, often to share a traditional meal of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie. What about those who simply can’t smile? They have dental pain.

    Dr. Jonathan Frankel

     

    Eight years ago, Dr. Jonathan Frankel, a native of Toledo, Ohio decided to bring smiles back to those less fortunate. The day before Thanksgiving he opens his Toledo location dental office and offers free dental care.

    “We are so grateful to do what we love at Frankel Dentistry.  Dr. Puhl and I, our associates and staff enjoy serving others”, states Frankel. “What better way is there to show our gratitude and thankfulness than by encouraging others by giving free dental care”,  he asks. 

     

    Free Dental Care

    Each year the Frankel Team starts Thanksgiving a day early by donating their time and talent toward others.  Frankel Dentistry offers dental care free of charge on a first come, first see basis. Come early, the event is scheduled from 7:30 am until 12 noon on Wednesday, November 22nd at 5012 Talmadge Road.

    Olivia Slates, dental hygienist, commented, “Free Dental Day is the highlight of the year for many of us. Our free dental day patients are always so appreciative. The smiles mean the world to us. It just wouldn’t seem like Thanksgiving if we didn’t help those in need”.

     

    Frankel Dentistry has been serving Toledo since 1946. For more information, all the Toledo office at 419-474-9611.

  2. Now you see it. Now you don’t. Dental Insurance Benefits

    Got Insurance? Be Sure to Use it!

    The year is almost over and that means you only have a few months left this year to use your dental benefits. Have you been putting off a dental procedure? Have you been seen for your regular exam yet? Now is the time to make the time to put your dental health first.

     

    Dr. Frankel and Dr. Puhl urge you to take advantage of your dental benefits — you are paying for them! If you have a Flexible Spending Account (FSA), the dollars are just sitting there waiting for you to use them — and this money will expire, so use it or lose it!

    If you have any questions about your benefit policy, our staff is more than willing to go over any questions you may have. Act quickly! The holidays are a busy time, so if you need to schedule treatment, get an appointment on the calendar.

     

  3. Frankel Dentistry Spring Smiles

     

    Spring has sprung and the flowers are blooming and the trees are budding. You can keep your windows open, but that means you need to start your spring cleaning to get rid of the dust and debris from the winter season. To keep your home clean and healthy, it takes work. Did you know your medicine cabinet needs a good spring cleaning too?

    Jonathan Frankel, D.D.S.

    Dr. Frankel Shares Spring Cleaning Tips

    • Get a new toothbrush! Leave those winter germs behind and make sure to start off the season with a clean, fresh toothbrush.
    • Clean out and disinfect your medicine cabinet and bathroom — anywhere your toothbrush and oral hygiene products are stored.
    • Schedule a cleaning with your dentist! It is best to have your teeth cleaned twice a year.

    Got a Sweet Tooth?

    Hundreds of pounds of halloween candy is being consumed this season – do you have the will power to eat it in moderation? Before the holiday season is here, make sure to check your healthy habits and understand how all those sweets affect your teeth. It’s also very important to teach children health habits at a young age and educate them on the effects of sugar on their teeth.

    Everything we eat and drink has bacteria in it, but sugary sweets contain more bacteria. This bacteria can buildup and cause plaque. When plaque builds up and is not cared for with a good oral hygiene routine, it can cause tooth decay and cavities.

    Sugar can be enjoyed in moderation and it’s important to brush and floss your teeth after consumption. Make brushing fun and not a chore — share this video with your children and sing together!

  5. Thirsty? Quench Your Thirst with Water

    Stay Cool and Hydrate with Water

    Stay Cool, Hydrate with Water

    With temperatures on the rise, the heat can leave you quite thirsty! Recent studies have found that children, specifically 12 – 14 year olds,  are consuming sports drinks unnecessarily. These sports drinks are high in sugar and can lead to obesity and tooth erosion and cavities.

    Drink Water

    Children misunderstand the use of the sports drink and consume them socially instead they are intended for endurance training and intense sporting events. Athletes who consume them should be aware of the effects the drinks may have on your teeth and should practice good dental habits.

    Energy drinks also contain a lot of sugar and caffeine and are being consumed by middle-and-high school students too frequently.
    Help educate children and teach children to opt for water or milk to keep them hydrated.
