Category Archive: Dental Patient Experience

  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.

    Changing lives a Smile at a Time

    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.

    As always professional & comfortable! I need a bumper sticker that says, “I love my dentist!”

    PR

    I have been going to this office for about five years now and they always provide great care. They make sure you are comfortable and they also take your questions and concerns very seriously. I would highly recommend!

    KD

    I am a past patient visiting from out of state. I had an emergency situation and Tatyana was extremely helpful. She found an appointment for me the same day and made sure she called back to confirm. Dr. Smith was very personable and explained everything that was going on – and helped put my mind at ease.Fortunately, it was nothing but my confidence in the practice that they’re still there for me when I’m in town was completely reassured. Definitely highly recommend!

    ANON

    Kind and friendly as always! They seem to really care about you ! Gentle and thoughtful ! That’s me saying that, from a person that never liked going to the dentist . It always brought on so much anxiety till I found Dr Frankel and Karen !

    BA

    Great experience starting with the welcome phone message from Zach! We felt comfortable and valued by everyone we interacted with on your team! Thank you for your outstanding service. We look forward to our next visit.

    I can honestly say I am no longer afraid of the dentist. After many traumatic experiences at many different dental offices, I decided to try Dr. Frankel’s office because it seems to be the popular place to go. I had a filling fall out that was done by a different dentist and they got me in right away for an emergency appointment. All of the staff were so friendly, they made me feel completely comfortable and went at my pace. I went back for a cleaning and they were very thorough, and again very friendly. I went in today to have a filling replaced, this was the 6th time and third dentist to replace this filling. I was seen by Dr Smith who was so friendly, always smiling, and pulled up my xrays so he could show me what he was planning, as well as why I have been having so many problems with this tooth. He was very patient and took the time to answer all questions I had. He asked me regularly how I was doing, and told me what he was doing before doing it. I walked away feeling good about the work that I had done, and I even had some good laughs!

    I go every 6 months for my routine dental cleaning!! I absolutely love the staff. Everyone is so nice and Welcoming!! So the girl that cleaned my teeth that day did an awesome job and my smile looked so white, fresh and clean. When the doctor came to talk to me, he was a very nice man. He explained everything to me and answered all my questions and made me feel at ease!! I love coming to the dentist now because I go to Dr. Frankel’s office!!

    Anonymus

    So happy with the service and quality of dental services at Frankel!! My daughter was very self conscious about her smile and Frankel is all about the cosmetic appearance. They completely understood and worked magic. Now she’s confident with her smile and I’m so grateful to everyone at Frankel for the wonderful experience.

    Lilly W.

    I despised the dentist. So much so I didn’t go for years. I regret doing that but so so happy I became a patient here. Incredibly kind, funny and make me feel more comfortable in a place that makes me cringe than I ever thought possible. I legit love them there.
