  1. January 24th was National Compliment Day, a day dedicated to spreading positivity and kindness through the power of compliments. At Frankel Dentistry one of our core values is G.E.T. or Gratitude, Encouragement, and Trust. Every morning at the start of our day we read “BRAVOS”. These are compliments for outstanding  performance written by co-workers. At Frankel Dentistry everyday is Compliment Day!

    A compliment is a simple yet powerful way to brighten someone’s day and lift their spirits. Whether it’s a compliment on someone’s appearance, their work, or their personality, it can make a big difference in how they feel.

    In honor of this special day, let’s take a moment to think about the people in our lives who could use a compliment. It could be a family member, a friend, a coworker, or even a stranger.

    Here are a few ideas for compliments that you can give today:

    • “I love your smile, it lights up the room.”
    • “You’re such a hard worker, it’s inspiring to see.”
    • “You have a great sense of style, I love your outfit today.”
    • “You’re an excellent listener, I always feel heard when I talk to you.”

    Remember, a compliment doesn’t have to be big or elaborate to make an impact. A simple “you look great today” or “I appreciate you” can go a long way.

    So, let’s spread some love and positivity today and every day. Compliment someone today and make their day a little bit brighter.

    At Frankel Dentistry everyday is Compliment Day!

  1. Wearing down your smile by grinding your teeth throughout the night? Unbearable migraines as a result from uncontrollable clenching?
    Our Maumee office, Frankel and Puhl Dentistry could have a solution for you! Dr. Amber Puhl, DDS is now administering Botox to help treat TMJ and bruxism.

    Not sure what TMJ is? Let us break it down for you.

    The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) acts like a sliding hinge, connecting your jawbone to your skull. You have one joint on each side of your jaw. TMJ disorders, a type of temporomandibular disorder or TMD, can cause pain in your jaw joint and in the muscles that control jaw movement. Over 80% of patients suffer from some sort of TMJ disorder.

    What causes TMJ?

    TMJ can be the result of a number of factors. Arthritis, jaw injury, teeth clenching and/or grinding all contribute to TMJ development. During early signs of teeth grinding and clenching we recommend visiting your dentist regarding night guards to protect your enamel and your jaw.

    Signs and symptoms of TMJ disorders may include:

    • Pain or tenderness of your jaw
    • Pain in one or both of the temporomandibular joints
    • Aching pain in and around your ear
    • Difficulty chewing or pain while chewing
    • Aching facial pain
    • Locking of the joint, making it difficult to open or close your mouth

    Botox Can Help!

    You have undoubtedly heard of Botox injections used to enhance lips, cheeks, or to smooth out wrinkles across the forehead or around the eyes. But you may not be familiar with Botox treatment for TMJ. When the Botox is injected into the temporalis and masseter muscles, it limits muscle function and relieves facial pain, headaches, and swelling associated with TMJ.

    Always Better! Frankel and Puhl Dentistry is adding Botox as a treatment option for patients who suffer from TMJ disorders. Continuing to learn and grow to best serve our patients is very important to us. After training and continued education with the American Academy of Facial Esthetics,  our very own Dr. Amber Puhl, DDS will be offering botox treatment!

    Struggling with tension headaches and jaw pain from TMJ? Botox could be your answer. Visit us online or call today to schedule an appointment.

    The truth is, we love our careers and we love our workplace. Everyday we come together with individuals who are devoted to serving others, passionate about excellent patient care, and are simply hard workers. We are fortunate enough to have built a team where everyone is willing to go above and beyond for the next. Working in healthcare allows us to touch the lives of hundreds of patients and truly make a difference. We’ve said it hundreds of times but… a healthy mouth promotes a healthy body! The mouth is the gateway to the rest of the body. Practicing a strong oral health care routine and caring for your mouth can help spread infection and prevent gum disease, tooth loss, diabetes and heart disease. We are grateful to serve others and make a difference through healthcare and excellent patient care.

Frankel and Puhl opened our night highlighting peaks in our year past, acknowledging our employees whose dedication should never go unnoticed and introducing our newest partners Foundation Dental and Firestone Dentistry.

  1. Cold on the Outside but Warm on the Inside

    Imagine it is mid-holiday season. Everyone is busy. Life is hectic. A local television station digital platform asks for volunteers. Volunteers to be on video sharing the reason they like their workplace.

    Frankel Dentistry Owners

    Would you volunteer?

     

    It is a testament to Frankel Dentistry that nearly 20 employees were willing to take the time, shake off their timidness and step out of their comfort zone.

     

    Take time and think it over. Do you enjoy your workplace enough to go on the record?

     

    Frankel Dentistry is 100% Employee owned. The doctors, dental healthcare professionals and staff walk, talk, and breath owner mindset.

  1. Best Workplace

    There are a variety of ways to determine best workplace. Awards and accolades are nice but going to the source is ideal. Asking the doctors, healthcare providers, and staff about Frankel Dentistry reveals why this is absolutely the best place to work in Toledo.

     

    Kenyetta has been with Frankel Dentistry for over 30 years. 28 years ago, she left for a month after being courted away by another company. She was back within weeks.

    “There is nothing like Frankel Dentistry. It is gratifying to serve the community and each other. Dentistry as a profession is unique. You help others with how they look and feel. A healthy mouth promotes a healthy body. Frankel Dentistry takes it to another level. We are constantly improving through systems, technology, and an incredibly caring culture. I couldn’t imagine working anywhere else.”

    Debbie was a dental hygiene student at Owens Community College. A Frankel Dentistry Dental Hygienist was attending an event where hygiene students offer academic presentations. She invited Deb to visit Frankel Dentistry. Twenty years later Deb is the dental hygiene team leader, practices dental hygiene, and educates patients with complimentary consultations.

    “I don’t know how to put in words how Frankel Dentistry has impacted my life. I was a patient. Drs. Sheldon and Jon Frankel impressed me with their passion to change lives a smile at a time through the highest standards of dental care. I sought out a dental hygiene program. Owens Community College has an outstanding program, and I was thrilled to be accepted. It was serendipitous when I met Pamela at the annual table clinics. I have a career I love, working with people I like and respect. I have had opportunities to grow professionally and personally while helping others. Recently, Dr. Frankel gave the practice to the employees. I feel fortunate to work at Frankel Dentistry. It is home.”

     Deb Oliver

     

    A Frankel Dentistry human resources employee made a call to a local business for service. The operator solved an ongoing issue. The interaction left her feeling better. She recognized this as part of the Frankel Dentistry culture and asked him to visit the practice.

     

     

    “I hated my job. I worked in a call center for years. The employees were dissatisfied. The systems were inefficient. It was exhausting. A Frankel Dentistry team leader needed the services of my company. She was impressed with my customer service and asked me to visit Frankel Dentistry. I had no expectations but was so unhappy I took a leap of faith.

     It was a life changing choice. I started in the call center at Frankel Dentistry. I currently am the office integrator which is another name for manager. I am happier, more energetic, feel I truly make a difference in the lives of the doctors, healthcare providers, staff, and patients I work with. My family has noticed I am more available.

    Dr. Frankel changed my life and the lives of my wife and children. I know my career helps others with their personal health and well-being. It just doesn’t get better than that.”

  1. Afraid of the Dentist?

    Afraid of the Dentist?

     

    It is common for people to fear the dentist. According to Cleveland Clinic 36% of the adults in the U.S. fear the dentist. https://my.clevelandclinic.org/health/diseases/22594-dentophobia-fear-of-dentists#:~:text=How%20common%20are%20dentophobia%20and,in%20females%20than%20in%20males.

    Find a dentist who listens.

    At Frankel Dentistry we have found that understanding, compassion, and communication are life changing for patients with dental fear. Patients are offered complimentary consultations to design a plan toward dental health. Oral and I.V. sedation are options for those with more severe anxiety. Many times, patients are gently directed through their treatment and find their fear slips away.

    Complimentary Consultation

     

    The first step toward dental health can be a tour of the office. Frankel Dentistry has systems in place to introduce you to your dental care providers before treatment begins.

    A healthy mouth promotes a healthy body. Regularly scheduled visits allow small issues to be addressed before they become big problems.

    Don’t let dental fear steal your smile or jeopardize your overall health. Find a dentist who understands dental anxiety.

     

  1. Preventive Visits Cover Issues Like Sleep Apnea

    Oral sleep appliances and snore guards are life savers for many. What is the difference? How do I know if I or my loved ones need either?

    Are you tired? Do you fall asleep anytime your sit down for more than a minute or two? Do you snore or gasp for air at night? There is one way to know if you are suffering breathing difficulties when you sleep. Have a professional sleep study. There are markers such as tooth wear, snoring, or gasping for air while asleep but the most accurate diagnosis of sleep apnea is through a sleep study.

    Proper Sleep Enhances Your Mood and Smile

    Your doctor can prescribe a sleep study. Once you have a diagnosis you will rest easy. If you do have sleep apnea you may chose to use a C-PAP machine. If you have mild sleep apnea or are non-compliant with your C-PAP you may be a candidate for an oral sleep appliance. This is an oral device that repositions the jaw and opens the airway.

    Snoring has ended relationships. Many people have found relief with a snore guard. It is different but like an oral sleep appliance.

    Please ask you dentist for more information and wake up bright and fresh.

  1. The last Saturday of September is Family Health & Fitness Day USA. What better reminder to teach your children to brush, floss, and visit the dentist? The dentists at Frankel Dentistry often hear parents comment on how happy they are to bring their children to this Ohio dental practice. Kids love Frankel Dentistry. A pleasant dental visit can lead to a lifetime of dental health. Frankel Dentistry has recently received the following feedback from patients.

     

    “All four of us came in last night for our family’s dental cleanings. Olivia took care of my daughter and me. She takes her time with us, always so friendly and sweet! She is not just an awesome hygienist – she’s a friend we can’t wait to visit every 6 months!”

    “I cannot say enough good things about my daughter, Hadley’s hygienist. She is always so sweet and so patient and amazing with kids. Hadley looks forward to going to the dentist and even asked if she could color her hygienist and dentist pictures. I will not go anywhere else!!!”

  1. September is here! Can you believe how fast the 2022 year has gone by? As we start to enter the fall season, we want to remind you to not only visit the dentist to ensure optimal oral health but to continue to work on your self-improvement. September is Self Improvement month and it’s the perfect time to revisit your personal goals and take steps to be who you aspire to be! 

     

    This month, all our Frankel Dentistry team members are sharing their personal goals for the year! #AlwaysBetter! We are excited to get a jump start on positive, healthy habits that will help us create the lives we want to live! Here are just a few to help inspire you!

    A member of our finance team, Jerica, just purchased a home and has prioritized remodeling the space into something she adores!

    Brilliant and career driven, our new doctor Dr. Dhaliwal, hopes to become implant certified to allow her to change the lives of even more patients!

    Smiles in the front hope to start helping smiles in the back! Our front desk extraordinaire, Yasmeen, is taking steps to become a dental assistant and become part of our clinical team! 

    Happy and Healthy! It seems as though prioritizing and devising a healthcare plan is our most common goal. Dozens of us like Lisa, Megan, Hava, Dr. Frankel, Ashley, Brittany, and more are workin’ on their fitness!

    Little actions lead to big actions! Your self improvement goal can be big or small. Alexa wants to keep her car clean, Joellen wants to stop biting her nails, and Kylee wants to drink more water!

     

    With an #AlwaysBetter attitude, our Frankel Dentistry team is excited to work towards bettering ourselves to help better others! Little actions, little words, a little bit of love and encouragement are all things that combine to achieve a greater goal!

     

    What are some of your personal goals for September or even for the rest of the year?
