As a team member of Jon Frankel Dentistry for six years, Melissa, “Mel,” always has a bright smile on her face and a witty line to lighten any situation. It is her constant positive energy that has earned her this week’s Employee of the Week.
Away from the office, Mel enjoys spending time with her two daughters and her husband; hanging with friends; swimming in their pond and visiting the lake.
She is very proud of her two daughters ages two and four. Her eldest daughter paves the way for the younger one. In fact, just last week the older one was in the office getting her teeth cleaned. After the cleaning, the younger one climbed right into the chair wanting to get her teeth cleaned as well.
The younger daughter is also quite the little firecracker. Recently, she was chosen as the cutest baby at the fair when she announced to the crowd, “Welcome to the fair!”
Originally from Oak Harbor, Mel was a cheerleader in high school and is actively involved with her Alma Matter as the Varsity Cheerleading Coach.
Back in the office, Mel is not only a certified EFDA, she also holds a Bachelor’s of Science degree from the University of Toledo. Additionally, Mel is the Manager of the Dental Assistants at Jon Frankel Dentistry, which means her job duties include helping the dentists with many procedures, filling teeth, scheduling, and much more. However, when you ask Mel what her favorite part of her job is she quickly states, “The patients, they are all really cool and just a pleasure to work with!”
But as Dr. Frankel points out,” Mel is an important part of our team! She is always smiling and comforting our patients. She understands them and makes them feel right at home.”
