Always a pleasant trip going to Frankel Dentistry. Everyone is so kind and professional. I know I am getting the best care for my teeth when I see Dr. Frankel or any of his associates. I would like to give two pats on the back and a big ATTTA boy/girl to the entire staff for a job well done.

My wife and I have been patients at Frankel Dentistry since the early 1970’s. I don’t think anything else needs to be said.

First time there and I felt comfortable and I don’t like the dentist. Julie was great. And was gentle on my teeth. Will DEFINITELY be going back to let her work on my teeth.
January 7, 2021
I was very impressed with my initial exam and x-rays. The x-rays were processed immediately – only a few minutes. The professional conducting my exam put the photos on the tv screen in front of me and used a mouse pointer to highlight the areas of concern as she explained the issues (possible root infection , tartar build-up, filling inclusions..) Very thorough. I came out with a clear understanding of the issues and treatment plan.

As always professional & comfortable! I need a bumper sticker that says, “I love my dentist!”
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!
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!
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 !
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!
It may be cold outside but the patients at Frankel Dentistry are feeling warm fuzzies. Since 1946 Frankel Dentistry has served the Toledo, Ohio area through dentistry with an always better philosophy. It shows. They have received 24 patient reviews in 11 days!
Since I have become a patient of Dr. Frankel (going on 7 years), I have had NO problems with my teeth! My previous dentist always seemed to find something “wrong”, and I needed an overlay, or a bridge, or SOMETHING! I am beyond satisfied with all the staff at this practice and I highly recommend becoming a patient here.
Brittney is a very thorough hygienist with an gentle touch. I would recommend her to all my family and friends. The staff was all very friendly. Dr. “D” was informative. Can’t wait to come back!
went well, friendly people
Dr. Smith and his assistant were so incredibly kind.
Very welcoming, glad I made the choice to come here!
Timely, friendly. Overall great experience!
Would just like to let you know how impressive your office is on cleanliness. From the waiting area to the dental chair all looks so nice. Brittney always does a great job cleaning my teeth but for some reason on this particular visit I happened to notice how professional everything looked. Keep up the good work – we appreciate it!!
From the minute I walked in the door I was greeted with a genuine happy smile. Brittney also called me back for my cleaning with a big smile. Check out staff very nice and friendly. So nice to go to a workplace where people smile. Also “love” the quick whitening Brittney did on my teeth. The minimal cost is worth the time I save doing it on my own and treatment does a better job than my home whitening.
The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. I was seen immediately when I called as a new patient with a problem tooth. I am so thankful I choose this practice. It is also very clean.
I moved to the area from S.C and I needed to find a dentist and chose to go to Dr. Frankel. Upon arriving it was obvious there is team concept strategy within the office. Everyone was pleasant, upbeat and willing. They all made me feel as though they had been waiting specifically for me. Julia did my cleaning and she was very gentle, kind and thoughtful. Dr. Frankel was very nice and seemed genuinely concerned about my overall dental care. This was my first visit however I do believe I’ve found my dentist and that makes me smile.
Dr. Hill was amazing and her soft voice and compassion made me feel more at ease. I will make sure to have her more often.
Office and lab were state of the art. Very clean facility, staff was amazing. Had x Ray’s done and cleaning, first time patient. Felt relaxed and at ease by very professional staff.
great staff and dentists
The hygienist was phenomenal with my 4 year old son. She made it fun, comfortable, and explained as she went making it a game. It was an awesome experience for him and he left excited to come back and get his teeth “tickled”.
New patient and I was very pleased with our new dentist. Office was new and up to date and the care I received was excellent.
They always get you in on time and out in a reasonable amount of time. The staff makes you feel comfortable and welcomed. I actually look forward to my appointments. Dr. Frankel is the best and has the best staff!!!
Dr. Frankel is the best!! They took great care of me and my little sister yesterday!
I was promptly escorted to my appointment by Jess. Very professional service. Thank you.
I enjoy going to Dr. Frankel’s not only to have on going dental care, the staff from Dr. Frankel to the dental hygienist to the office personal make feel welcomed.
Jess was fantastic! Made it a comfortable and enjoyable experience. Dr. D was also very knowledgeable and helpful.
I always receive the best of care with all appointments there. They treat me like I am their only patient.
Very professional, nice staff
Dr. Frankel wants to see your smile!
Toledo Dentist hears straight from his Patients’ Mouth
We consider our patients dental family. Here are a few of our reviews from last month.
Had extreme pain from upper wisdom teeth, called the Toledo office, they got me in within a hour with no appointment, advanced notice, or emergency fee. Was a new patient, was seen by the staff within 30 mins of filling out my paperwork and they did the work I needed on the spot. Excellent communication and attention from the doctors and assistants. Absolutely no complaints. Would recommend to anyone needed a quick operation done, or for a comfortable routine experience.
The staff at this office is amazing! I never have to wait long, they are very clear and efficient and respect you. Other offices I have not had this experience and they talk down to you. At this location, the dental hygienists are SO NICE! The girl I had was so sweet, friendly, and enthusiastic. Her knowledge really showed. She gave very good advice for keeping healthy teeth. She went above and beyond to make sure I got whitening trays and was very quick but thorough with her cleaning and getting the doctor to see me. Thank you so much for always making this an enjoyable experience and for being so nice!! 🙂
I am grateful to the office for their understanding of my anxiety and that they help me through the visit. I have never actually looked forward (dreaded it actually) to going to the dentist, but now, it’s not so bad. Thank you!
My son said he loved his visit, was the first time at his “new dentist office”.
What our patients are saying at Frankel Dentistry
We listen to our dental family. Often times they make our day with their comments. We thought we might share a few of the most recent observations.
I have been embarrassed by my smile for years and terrified to go to the dentist to do anything about it. It’s been a long journey and I still have a way to go, but the light is at the end of the tunnel. EVERY one of your staff members that I have met along the way have been beyond exceptional. Thank you to all of you! I left grinning from ear to ear today confident that I will finally have a smile I love!
I am an RN Geriatric Care Manager who personally takes her clients to all doctor’s appts including dental. One of my patient’s had Dr. Frankel as her dentist. Quite frankly, I have never been to such a caring, professional and high-tech dental office. I immediately switched my dental care to Dr. Frankel. I have also recommended him to several of my clients and they are now his patients as well.
I hate going to the dentist! I have not been to one in 30 yrs but Frankel dentistry has impressed me enough to return to them for the needed care. I still don’t like dentist visits but they make it a pleasant as possible experience thanks to the great staff.
They are very quick to get their patients in as needed. I had a broken tooth and Dr. Jon called me personally to get me in. Thank you very much for all your work and making me feel I matter.
Need a crown on a tooth and was pleasantly surprised to find they can prep the tooth and make the crown and place it all in the same visit. As always the staff was friendly and make you feel comfortable!
Age is one factor that we can’t fight, although we really, really try. Truth be told, with all the other age defying tricks out there to help keep our youthful appearance, our smiles should not be one that we neglect.
- Tooth decay. Yes, we warn our children and grandchildren about too much sugar and cavities. But just because we are older doesn’t mean we are immune to tooth decay. It is important to still brush for two minutes twice a day, floss daily, and visit Dr. Frankel for an exam every six months. A clean, healthy, white smile is also a nice trick to help keep you looking young and vibrant.
- Dry mouth. As we age and are prescribed different medications, we may start to experience dry mouth. Saliva is important part of protecting our teeth from decay, therefore, a dry mouth could be detrimental toward our oral health. Make sure you are staying properly hydrated, and sip and swish water whenever you notice your mouth may be dry.
- Too crowding. Pre-teens are not the only ones who experience tooth crowding. As we age our teeth move and shift. This may cause our teeth to crowd. Crowded teeth give bacteria many places to hide, where our tooth brushes and floss may not reach effectively. This breeding ground for bacteria may lead to tooth decay or worse, gum disease.
- Gum disease. Gingivitis and periodontal disease effect nearly half of American adults, according to the American Academy of Periodontology. Periodontal disease is a chronic inflammatory disease, which left untreated can affect the gum tissue and lead to tooth loss. The Frankel Dentistry team has a practicing Periodontist on staff, who will be able to treat patients with gum disease. Although gum disease cannot be reversed, there are plenty of ways to manage it, keeping your gums and teeth healthy.
- Oral Cancer. 43,000 Americans are diagnosed each year with oral cancer and nearly 8,000 will die from it (Oral Cancer Foundation). It is best to catch oral cancer in the earliest stages. While at Frankel Dentistry we will do a comprehensive exam, including an oral cancer screening, which will help ensure that your mouth is healthy and cancer free.
Now aren’t those puppies cute?
Bread, born, and sold in Wauseon, Ohio, these adorable Labradoodles have a great connection to Frankel Dentistry and our hearts. Maggie Lauderdale always knew she wanted to breed dogs. 10 years ago, the opportunity finally broke through, and she never looked back. But, why labradoodles? Because they have some many strong qualities: They are trainable, intelligent, allergy friendly, non-shedding… the list goes on.
Maggie also is able to breed these adorable dogs to be anywhere from 15-70 lbs, to fit each and every persons needs and desires. And talk about a variety of colors. You can choose from chocolate, black, red and cream.
But, yes, there is more. Labradoodles make great therapy dogs. Maggie knows her worldly talent is to raise good dogs. And worldly she has become. Since starting Lauderdoodles, Maggie has placed puppies in most US States and internationally. That’s right you can find her puppies in Germany, Turkey, and Abudabi.
So, thinking about wanting a puppy? Maggie has a very thorough process. The first part is a brief interview, allowing her to know that these puppies are going to good, loving homes. Secondly, be prepared to pick the size and color of your puppy and then wait. Once a puppy with your size. color. and gender preferences is born, it must then go through training when it is 12 weeks old. Training lasts 4 weeks and is a custom training program specified for each individual family. The family also receives written training instructions and a CD with lifetime support.
If you have been thinking about adding a new, furry member to your family, contact Maggie at Lauderdooles.net. You can also find them on Facebook.
And as for Maggie, she is a wonderful, caring mother who even recently brought her adult son to Frankel Dentistry. But don’t hear it from us, watch this amazing testimonial from Maggie herself.
Dr. Frankel often says “a healthy mouth promotes a healthy body.”
This statement rang true today when our manager of dental hygiene, Debbie, came in to work during her vacation because caring for our dental family is what we do best!
So the next time you see Debbie,
you will know just how much she really cares!
23 years ago, Dr. Jon Frankel walked into the bank and walked out with a life long patient, Louise Kahle. Louise had just moved to the Toledo area and was working at the bank. She was in need of a new family dentist, and Dr. Frankel became that man. To this day, Louise is a dedicated Frankel patient and loves the fact that she even has Dr. Frankel’s personal cell phone number in case she ever has a dental emergency.
But Louise Kahle’s life took a new turn 12 years ago when she left her job in the corporate banking world and began helping women discover their “sass.” “Before starting Sassy Boomer Girls, I was always doing what I thought I had to do,” said Louise. “Now I am doing what I want to do and having so much more fun.”
A self-proclaimed “late bloomer,” Louise continues to discover more confidence daily. From this confidence, she developed sass. According to Louise, “Sassiness is a way of life. It can be found deep within one’s core. It eludes joy.” Once found, women must discover a way to express their sassiness to the world. One way is through personal style and not caring what anyone else thinks. “Heck, that is why I dyed my hair blue,” said Louise.
At Sassy Boomer Girls, Louise’s mission is to get women to “look as good as they feel.” She believes that every woman’s closet tells a lot about who she is and how she feels about herself. Therefore, Louise’s passion is to help women update their closets to display their confidence and inner sass. But why not hear it from Louise herself in this quick video.
Louise recently expanded her services to include color analysis, which allows women to know which colors flatter their skin tone and a small jewelry line. More information about Louise and her services or to book an appointment can be found on her website www.sassyboomergirls.com
