Archive: Apr 2020

  1. Toledo dentist, Dr. Jon Frankel, has served the Toledo community through dentistry with an always better approach since he graduated from dental school in 1992. Frankel Dentistry has been setting the standard for dentistry since 1946 when Dr. Sheldon Frankel opened the doors.

    Best Dental Experience since 1946


    Dr. Sheldon Frankel was innovative. He was the first dentist in Toledo, Ohio to use an electric hand-piece. The doctors, healthcare providers and staff at Frankel Dentistry are grateful to continue changing lives a smile at a time with this always better philosophy.

    Dr. Frankel has gone the extra mile to place HEPPA 13 filters throughout the both offices, Maumee and Toledo, as well as has had UV lights installed in the furnace and duct work to mitigate the COVID-19 virus.

    These offices follow the infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). They closely follow these agencies so that they are up to date with any new rulings or guidance. Their infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ suggestions.

    Serving through dentistry is a privilege


    To keep their dental family safe, there are some changes. Here are some of the changes they are putting in place according to Dr. Frankel and Dr. Puhl.

    • Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask screening questions. You will be asked these same questions again when you are in the office.
    • We have a hand sanitizing station that we will ask you to use or we may request you wash your hands when you enter the office.
    • We will take your temperature before your appointment.
    • Our reception area will no longer offer magazines and children’s toys. These items are difficult to clean and disinfect. 
    • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing.
    • Call the office upon arrival. We will come out to get you.
    • Please wear a mask when arriving for your appointment.
    • Please do not bring anyone else with you to your appointment.
    • Our office will continue to use rubber dams for your protection, which now is mandated by the CDC and ADA guidelines.

    It is good to know that there are those stepping up to the challenges of our new normal. Dr. Frankel and Dr. Puhl know what to do and how to do it.

    They really are changing lives a smile at time in Toledo.

  2. Facing quarantine as a nation is a challenge. A Toledo, Ohio dental office employs nearly 90 people. Most of them are confined home while a skeleton crew of professionals are serving those with dental emergencies. These Frankel Dentistry front-line professionals are keeping the hospital emergency rooms clear for Coronavirus patients. What are their stuck-at-home co-workers doing while stationed indoors?

    Patients know that the Doctors, Healthcare Providers and Staff at Frankel Dentistry are an energized group. We were wondering how these high-powered professionals were doing while safely tucked into their homes. It might not surprise you that they continue to be quite productive.

  3. Toledo has an unspoken treasure. It is not the Toledo Museum of Art, the Toledo Symphony, or the Toledo Zoo. It is not the Toledo Mudhens or the Toledo Walleyes. It is something you sense but cannot explain. It’s the people. Frankel Dentistry is a perfect example of what puts Toledo, Ohio on the map.

    Serve All is a strong value at Frankel Dentistry.

    Since 1946 Frankel Dentistry has served the community through dentistry with an always better approach. During the current pandemic this commitment to others continues. The caring doctors and staff recently received this message.

    “I would recommend Frankel Dentistry to all my friends, family members, and anyone in need of a good honest clean dentist. They were able to help my husband on a moment’s notice, they accepted cash payment. They are handling the overflow of dental issues coming from the hospital due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Frankel Dentistry went above and beyond for my husband, and honor veterans. I thank you very much for your time, you changed my husband’s life.” Amber S

    Grateful to Serve All


    One of the things that sets Frankel Dentistry apart from the rest is the people. The doctors, staff and healthcare providers go, as Amber stated, “over and beyond.” It is their culture. They wouldn’t have it any other way.

    At Frankel Dentistry, the main goal has always been to protect the health of their patients, their team, and their community. During the COVID-19 pandemic they are seeing patients with dental emergencies only.

    If you have a dental emergency, please contact them and they will take care of you. If you’re in dental pain, please call or text them.

    At Frankel Dentistry as in Toledo, Ohio, it is the people. They are Changing Lives a Smile at a Time.
