  2. 5 Ways to Help Your Kids Eat Healthier
    New year, new you, new resolutions — everyone always says they want to eat healthier and kids shouldn’t be an exception. When kids eat healthier, they feel better and have more energy to be a kid. Healthy eating habits are also beneficial for successful oral health. Healthy foods contain the essential vitamins and nutrients kids need to grow. Parents and caregivers need to create an atmosphere where healthy foods are the first choice and junk foods are consumed in moderation.
    Here are 5 ways to help your kids eat healthier foods and less junk food:
    1.  Stock your pantry with healthy snack choices and avoid buying snacks that are void of nutrients and full of sugar such as fruit snacks. Encourage children to choose fruits if they have a sweet tooth — try a smoothie!
    2. Bake more often — there are so many recipes out there that contain fruits and vegetables that are kid-approved. Instead of breakfast pastries, try homemade muffins with oatmeal and fruit!
     3. Limit TV – there are a lot of commercials that promote fast food meals and candy. Spend time together playing games or outside.
    4. Create a family meal plan together — have your children help you plan your meals. Download this example
    Drink Water
     5. Eat together —  eating meals together helps families stay united. Celebrate with healthy snacks like fruit yogurt vs. chocolate sundaes.

  3. Technology meets Technique

    Dan Green, D.D.S.

    Saginaw, Michigan generously shares the best it has to offer. From timber to Stevie Wonder, it may seem humble but this mid-Michigan city is a resource for the finest. We feel fortunate Dan Green found his way to the Toledo area. It is definitely Saginaw’s loss.

    Dr. Green has a strong engineering and design background. Initially an undergraduate student in Mechanical Engineering his desire to help others drew him into studies in biomedical sciences. Although a transplant he has Toledo area roots. He worked at Champion Spark Plug while a student. Dentistry was a natural fit for his innate talents. Dan Green, D.D.S. is a graduate of University of Michigan Dental School.

    While in dental school, it became clear to Dr. Green working with patients hands on while utilizing the constantly changing technology is what he loves to do. Oral Surgery, Endodontics and Restorative Dentistry are of particular interest. He received the Dental Implant Student Award from the American Association Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. He excels at what he enjoys!

    Dr. Green has been married for three years. He and his wife recently moved to Dundee, Michigan. His wife shares his interests and is currently working toward her doctorate in Cell and Molecular Biology at the U of M.

    In his spare time, you will find him exercising, woodworking, exploring his automotive interests or watching movies.

  6. Since 2005, when the Toledo Free Press named Norm Wamer the 9th most influential person in Toledo sports, he has not let us down. Today, Norm Wamer is the staple of Toledo sports radio, broadcasting weekdays on 106.5 The Ticket’s “Front Row” and covering local high school and professional sports events in his spare time. A graduate of Lake High School and the University of Toledo, Norm also calls Jon Frankel Dentistry home.

    We are proud of our dental families’ accomplishments, especially Norm’s. Most people don’t know that Norm has another side to his sporting talent. He also announces for Toledo’s NWA PCW Wrestling. His enthusiasm excites us all. Check him out as he wrestles NWA photographer, Scott Romer, in the video below.

  7. Research has shown over and over again that a Healthy Mouth promotes a Healthy Body but how do you get Dad to the Dentist? The Staff at Toledo, Ohio dentist, Jon Frankel’s office have five great suggestions.

    • Schedule a dental appointment for a grandchild. Have Granddad take the well informed, enthusiastic patient. Young patients often show the way for hesitant adults. We have seen several Grandparents who came in at a suggestion from their grandkids.

    • Remind your Dad to use his well earned insurance benefits before retirement. We hear regrets about lost benefits daily.

    • Have a serious conversation if you suspect dental disease. Health disease, stroke, diabetes, pancreatic cancer and Alzheimer’s Disease have a strong correlation to dental and oral health. It may be a difficult chat but a healthy mouth promotes a healthy body.

    • Give Dad a gift certificate to see his dentist. Often scheduling the first visit is all it takes to motivate patients to revive healthy habits.

    • Remind Dads who snore that dentists offer an oral appliance that prevents snoring. You will all sleep better knowing your Father’s oral health is in check and his snoring has subsided.
