Always a pleasant trip going to Frankel Dentistry. Everyone is so kind and professional. I know I am getting the best care for my teeth when I see Dr. Frankel or any of his associates. I would like to give two pats on the back and a big ATTTA boy/girl to the entire staff for a job well done.

My wife and I have been patients at Frankel Dentistry since the early 1970’s. I don’t think anything else needs to be said.

First time there and I felt comfortable and I don’t like the dentist. Julie was great. And was gentle on my teeth. Will DEFINITELY be going back to let her work on my teeth.
January 7, 2021
I was very impressed with my initial exam and x-rays. The x-rays were processed immediately – only a few minutes. The professional conducting my exam put the photos on the tv screen in front of me and used a mouse pointer to highlight the areas of concern as she explained the issues (possible root infection , tartar build-up, filling inclusions..) Very thorough. I came out with a clear understanding of the issues and treatment plan.

I am writing this review to compliment my dental hygienist. I wish I could remember her name. She was so friendly and kind. She made my experience very enjoyable. I am thankful for your business.

A healthy mouth promotes a healthy body. Toledo, Ohio dentist Dr. Jon Frankel reminds us that, especially now, keeping a strong immune system is important. One way is to keep your teeth in tip-top shape. The doctors, healthcare providers, and staff at Frankel Dentistry created a 2021 dental health questionnaire. It is a great way to find out where you can improve.
When was your last dental visit?
(You need to be seen every 3 to 6 months.)
Do your children enjoy visiting the dentist?
(Kids who like going to the dentist are more likely to enjoy a lifetime of dental health.
How old is your toothbrush?
(It is best to replace your toothbrush every 3 months.)
Where is your dental floss?
(It is vital to floss at least once a day to clean between your teeth.)
Do you scrape your tongue?
(Tongue scrapers are a great way to clean your mouth. After once you will make it a must!)
Are the seniors in your life visiting the dentist?
(After 60 going to the dentist at least every 3 months is recommended.)
If you have dental insurance benefits, have they changed?
(Many employers/providers change benefits annually often in January.)
Do you like you smile?
(Smiles bring confidence, communication, and inspire you to brush and floss.)
Losing an adult tooth due to decay, gum disease, or injury can be upsetting. The thought of wearing a partial denture is an unwelcome life-style change.
A permanent dental bridge compromises the health of the adjacent teeth.
Fortunately, the art and science of dentistry has come to the rescue.
Dental implants are as close as it gets to natural teeth. A titanium root is fused to the bone of your jaw. Once fixed in place an attachment is placed. A crown looking just like your original tooth ( and sometimes better) is cemented to the attachment.

A Toledo, Ohio dentist at Frankel Dentistry overheard one of his healthcare professionals sharing that her family made fun of her gift-giving. It was not funny to the seasoned dentist. His dedicated employee was giving electric toothbrushes.
Electric toothbrushes are not only a generous gift, but they can also keep folks healthy. It is well documented that a healthy mouth promotes a healthy body. During the current COVID-19 pandemic it is more important than ever to maintain a healthy immune system. Optimizing oral health with daily dental hygiene and regularly scheduled dental visits is key. Daily oral care is essential. There is no better time than now to perfect flossing and brushing.
The doctors and healthcare providers at Frankel Dentistry have seen marked improvement in the dental health of their patients who floss daily and use an electric toothbrush. They often recommend Philips Sonicare.

Toledo Dentist Jon Frankel, DDS celebrates dental hygienists. Dr. Frankel knows dentistry. His father, uncle and two cousins served the community through dental care as dentists. His aunt and sister have practiced dental hygiene for decades. Dentistry is in his DNA.
The hygienists at both the Toledo and Maumee locations of Frankel Dentistry report that the doctor, healthcare provider, staff team works together seamlessly. It is the ideal dental practice for career dental hygienists. They are not shy to boast how proud they are to work at Frankel Dentistry.
Weekly meetings, monthly reviews, bimonthly training, and room for advancement make their careers in dental hygiene exciting. The collaboration of advanced technology and direct communication between doctors, healthcare providers, and patients take this dental practice to another level.
Patients notice the difference. They often mention that to their surprise they look forward to dental visits. One patient explained dental hygiene in an interesting analogy. “ If exploring my mouth was like the Lewis and Clark Expedition on the Oregon Trail, my hygienist would be Sacagawea. The trail scout and guide reporting findings to Dr. Lewis and Clark.”
When asked why they chose careers in dental hygiene the Frankel crew was quick to answer. It is easy to see how much they enjoy what they do. It is important and they know it.
Hygiene is the best career in two ways. You have the privilege of helping
people gain and maintain oral health while sharing the experience of them feeling
better about themselves.
love building people’s confidence through their smiles.
adore working with children. Parents who bring in their children at an early
age are giving them a beautiful inheritance. These children are in position to
enjoy a lifetime of oral health. A healthy mouth promotes a healthy body.
Hygiene challenges the mind and warms the heart. It is ever evolving in diverse
arenas: psychology, science, business, and art. Stretching oneself while
enhancing the well-being of others both emotionally and physically. You must be
grateful to enjoy a career that gives so much.
am a hygienist who started as a patient! I was a patient at Frankel Dentistry.
My dental hygienist impressed me so much that I became one! Once I graduated and
passed my boards I joined Frankel Dentistry. It is eighteen years later, and I
still love what I do. I am the Toledo location Dental Hygiene team leader, one
if the Treatment Plan Concierges and actively seeing patients. I love what I do!
I am grateful to be changing lives smile at a time. After 15 years I still love what I do and cannot imagine working anywhere else.
There seems to be a lot of confusion regarding prophylactic pre-medicating (taking a prescribed dose of antibiotics) before dental treatment.
At Frankel Dentistry a medical clearance specialist calls the patient’s primary care physician, internal medicine specialist, cardiologist, or orthopedic surgeon to verify if a single dose of antibiotic need be taken minimally one hour or the night before dental procedures.
This once common precaution currently pertains to cardiac patients with restorative surgery to heart valves, a history of infection of the sac around the heart, heart transplant patients, individuals born with unrepaired heart disease, those with hearts repaired with shunts or those with leaky valves. For more information, check: https://www.todaysrdh.com/cutting-premedication-confusion/
Patients with joint replacement such as knee, hip, or shoulder may or may not require a pre-dose of antibiotic. It varies from one orthopedic surgeon to another. It keeps the Frankel Dentistry medical clearance specialist busy assuring the health of our patients.
Dental Hygienist, Brittney Gates adds, “Recently we have found many of our long-time patients think that a pre-med is only for anxiety. We would like to remind all our patients with heart issues repaired or not and joint restoration or replacement to play it safe. Take your pre-med if your doctor recommends it.”
Since 1946 Frankel Dentistry has been changing lives a smile at a time. It is not just the patients who are smiling. The doctors, healthcare providers, and staff seem to be continually happy. The best dental experience they provide is not only for their patients but each other. What makes smiling go viral at this Ohio dental office?
Weekly meetings, monthly training, continuing education opportunities, and quarterly events help the employees at both the Toledo and Maumee locations really get to know each other. Core processes include conflict resolution and communication refinement. The entire office is currently looking at Kim Scott’s Radical Candor communication model.
Frankel Dentistry takes time to learn how to enjoy their patients and each other!
Core Processes are key at this midwestern dental practice. These processes have a life of their own. They grow and improve, changing as needed. Using the EOS model for business organization brings the freedom of knowing what is expected and how to live a stress-free work life. Being accountable is fun once you hone your talents in a position you want, get, and have the capacity to excel at.
Frankel Dentistry has clear expectations!

Clinical studies continue to expand the correlation between a healthy mouth and a healthy body. Please feel free to contact their office at email@example.com for their brochure on the impact of dental health on overall health. If you ask the employees at either location what their passion is, the answer will be unanimous, Changing Lives a Smile at a Time. This is no small thing.

be rude but ask to look in the wallet or purse of a Frankel Dentistry team
member. You will find a business card just waiting to be shared. Referred new
