  1. 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.

    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.”

    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.

  2. 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.

    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.

  3. 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
