Jon Frankel Dentistry

  1. Best Gift Under the Tree

    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.

    Dental Health is important

    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.

  3. October is Dental Hygiene Month

    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.

    Frankel Dentistry has served the Toledo, Ohio area since 1946.


    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.

    Love what you do. Serve all.

    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.

    Dr. Frankel and Dr. Puhl lead the Always Better approach.

    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.”

    Your guide (dental hygienist) and doctor keep your smile healthy and beautiful.

    Patients are scheduled to see their dental hygienist every 3 or 6 months. Exams with the doctor are minimally an annual event. To better understand the role of a dental hygienist check this description post on the American Dental Association website: https://www.ada.org/en/education-careers/careers-in-dentistry/dental-team-careers/dental-hygienist.

    Frankel Dentistry Dental Hygienist love what they do.

    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.



    Rebecca:

    Dental 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.

    Olivia:

    I love building people’s confidence through their smiles.

    Sarah:

    I 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.

    Pamela:

    Dental 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.

    Deb:

    I 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!

    Jenny:

    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.

  4. There seems to be a lot of confusion regarding prophylactic pre-medicating (taking a prescribed dose of antibiotics) before dental treatment.

    Do I need an antibiotic 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.

    Medical Clearance Specialist contacting patient’s physician or specialist before appointment.

    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/

    Frankel Dentistry shows the love.

    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.

    We will check if you need prophylactic premedication.

    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.”

  5. Dental Practice Makes Happiness Go Viral


    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?

    Core Process are Documented and Accessible

    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!

    Dr. Frankel Offering Latest Updates

  6. Early September has traditionally been back to school time. Back packs and bus rides were a sign Mom and Dad would have more time to take care of themselves. Often parents would schedule dental appointments before the upcoming season of holidays and deadline for yearly dental insurance benefits.

    Healthy Smiles

    We now face a new normal. Home schooling, sports or no sports, and masks for all have changed our lives dramatically. The doctors, healthcare providers, and staff at Frankel Dentistry are concerned dental health needs may be omitted from the newly minted family calendar.

    Seniors Visit Every Three Months

    They suggest brushing and flossing be placed on the daily checklist or agenda. Children and adults should be scheduled once every six months for dental checkups. Seniors aged 60 and older are best seen every three months. Those with health complications such as diabetes or periodontal disease need well care visits every three months as well.

    Use Your Dental Insurance Benefits


    Calendar reminders to trade out old toothbrushes every three months are also helpful according to Dr. Jon Frankel, owner of Frankel Dentistry.

    He adds. “A healthy mouth promotes a healthy body. Keeping up with dental care is an important preventative practice. We see it every day.”

  7. Global Hug Your Kids Day


    The third Monday in July is Global Hug your Kid Day. Toledo, Ohio dental practice Frankel Dentistry is all about kids. The doctors, healthcare providers, and staff may not be hugging their young patients, but they do applaud parents who bring in their children for regular dental exams and cleanings.

    July 17, 2020

    “Children supported by their parents in visiting the dentist inherit a lifetime of dental health”, states dental hygienist, Brittney Gates. “We are seeing more and more children who simply love the dentist”, shares owner/dentist  Dr. Jon Frankel. When asked why, the same answers echoed throughout the office.

    I love the dentist!


    • Modern Technology for all areas of dental treatment
    • Televisions in each operatory
    • The best treasure chest in the Midwest
    • Parents who care
    Hugs, Smiles, Health

  8. Dental Floss


    Toledo, Ohio dentist, Dr. Jon Frankel, wants to remind folks to floss. More time at home leaves no excuses for slacking in oral hygiene. “Make it a daily practice”, states Frankel, who admits to flossing daily in the shower.

    Jonathan Frankel, D.D.S. Toledo, Ohio

    Thorough tooth brushing and flossing disrupts the biofilm that leads to decay and gum disease. A healthy mouth promotes a healthy body. Important information in a time when a comprised immune system might lower resistance to viral infections.

    Daily Flossing


    The doctors, healthcare providers and staff at Frankel Dentistry are passionate about patient education. While demonstrating how to floss, it seems they learned a lot of nontraditional uses. Dental floss, it appears,  is the dental world’s version “duct tape.”

    Dentistry’s Duct Tape


    The many uses, and reason to always have an extra roll or two available heard at this popular Ohio dental practice include:

    Securing a button on a coat or jacket.

    Slicing watermelon.

    Substituting plumbers’ putty in a pinch.

    Removing a ring stuck on a finger.

    Trussing a turkey.

    Cutting a cake.

    Sizing a ring.

    Hanging up Halloween decorations like spiders.

    Cleaning between the tines of a fork.

    Replacing a hair tie.

    Frankel Dentistry has been changing lives a smile at a time since 1946. They love what we they do and it shows. The patients, doctors, healthcare providers, and staff are always smiling (even under their masks). There is always laughter throughout the office.

    Floss. Brush. Wear a Mask!

  9. Caring for others has been a key element in a Toledo, Ohio dental office. Asked about their values, to a person, the doctors, healthcare providers and staff at Frankel Dentistry will tell you, they are: Serve All, Always Better and Gratitude.

    Frankel Dentistry


    COVID-19 did not close this dental practice. They remained open to serve those in dental pain, many having been referred by urgent care centers and Emergency Rooms. Following the CDC guidelines and adapting to a new normal was immediate. Systems were designed and implemented. This is a dental practice that thinks like a family.

    Wondering what insights these thoughtful folks might have, we inquired, “What is a helpful hint for families during the pandemic”?  We were not surprised to find the answers were quick and useful.

  10. Space Age Dentistry has arrived.


    The future is here.

    Space age technology is part of dentistry today. When Dr. Sheldon Frankel opened Frankel Dentistry in 1946, he was making gold crowns with the lost wax technique. He melted down the gold and poured it into a plaster cast embedded with a wax model of the crown. Pouring the molten gold into the plaster cast melt the wax. The gold-filled void held the new crown. While the crown was created,  the patient cautiously wore a temporary crown for 2 or more weeks.

    CAD/CAM Designed and Manufactured Dental Crown

    Now CAD/CAM (computer aided design and manufacturing) is used daily. Images of the prepared tooth are uploaded into the computer with a camera wand. The doctor designs the crown in the computer. It is routed to a milling system in the office. Milled then polished and shined, the new crown is seated in the patient’s mouth. All done on the same day.

    Art and Science are wed in current dental technology.

    I’m a new patient at Frankel Dentistry. My first appointment was in January of 2020. I’ve been so happy with the care that I’ve received from them. The staff and doctors have been so friendly to me. I was so pleased to see that the practice uses the state-of-the-art dental equipment for their procedures. My last visit was for a crown. It was amazing to see Dr. Smith measure and make my crown right in the office lab, all in one appointment. I had a perfect fit crown installed with no grinding to fit it. It just dropped into place with a perfect fit. I’m very happy with my new crown. Thank you, Dr. Smith and staff. WH
