  1. Dentist Offers Free Smiles

    A Toledo, Ohio dentist shows thanks by giving. Every year for the last 8 years Frankel Dentistry has opened their doors the Wednesday before Thanksgiving offering free dental care on a first come, first seen basis.

    Changing lives a smile at a Time


    It’s the most wonderful time of the year for a Toledo area dentist…Free Dental Day! On November 27th, the day before Thanksgiving, this Toledo office opens its doors to those in need of dental care free of charge. The event started about eight years ago when Dr. Frankel came up with the idea to give back to his community through his passion for dentistry. “No one should miss out on Thanksgiving because of dental pain, which is why we invite those in need of dental care to take part in this opportunity,” says Dr. Frankel. This is our practice’s holiday tradition.

    Frankel Dentistry sets itself apart with generous, caring doctors.

    “It is a real honor to be able to help those in need of dentistry who may be a little down on their luck,” said our office manager Zach Duckworth. This year’s Free Dental Day was a huge success! We were able to see 83 patients with a total cost of over $36,000 of treatment. This event wouldn’t be possible without our wonderful staff who all volunteer their time to be apart of this day.

    Serve All

    The doctors, healthcare providers and staff feel extremely blessed to have this wonderful opportunity to give back to our community through dentistry. Changing lives a smile at a time is this practice’s passion. “I am so pleased I got up so early this morning because I met everyone I needed to meet to have my smile back!” said a patient. “I am so happy and I feel so much better already. Thank you guys so much. You’re all angels!” she continued.

    Beautiful Smiles are priceless at Frankel Dentistry!

    Patients participating in Frankel’s Free Dental Day started lining up at 3:30 a.m. Everyone was thankful to Tim Horton’s located on Monroe Street for donating coffee.

  2. I am Watching You!

    Children study their parents, grandparents and siblings. They often “try on” the behaviors and mannerisms of those they love. Attitudes about the dentist are no exception.

    Parents watch what you say. You may be causing dental anxiety in your children. Frequently when a parent is “afraid” of the dentist that fear is passed on to the child.

    By setting a strong example for your children and teaching them proper oral hygiene, you may eliminate dental anxiety in your children. It is also important to make sure that your dentist is right for your family. Frankel Dentistry is truly “kid-friendly”. Many young patients tell ask their parents when CAN they go to the dentist next.

    Neat, clean place. Friendly and polite associates. Brittany did a great job and did everything she could to make my shy son feel comfortable. Dr Hill made sure I understood everything and gave me time to ask questions. The gentlemen that returned my call, I believe his name was Zach helped me get our appointment pushed back from 8:20 am to 10:00 am, so that I was able to sleep in a little longer on my day off. I have 5 kids, work a full time job and part time job so I greatly appreciated that flexibility. Great job team!! Keep up the good work. No complaints at all. LS

    Great experience. My kids don’t dread going to the dentist with such a friendly staff and TVs to distract them. LR

    Call Frankel Dentistry today and schedule a complimentary consultation. Welcome to your new dental family.

    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!

    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.

    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.

  5. Teen Teeth

    Your oral health care needs change as you get older. When children become teenagers, they face different issues than when they were younger. By the teenage years, a teen has lost all of his/her “baby” teeth and the adult teeth have made their stay.

    In addition to going through puberty, teens also face some oral health changes:

    1) Braces – everyone wants a smile that is full of straight teeth. Braces may be a good option for teens to explore.

    2) Bothersome wisdom teeth – these teeth or “third molars” can be an issue as teens get older. They may cause pain and need to be removed.

    3) Bad Breath – changes in your oral health routine may make a difference – including brushing with an electric toothbrush, flossing daily and adding a mouth wash. Tonsils made need to be checked as well.

     

     

     

    The best advice you can give your teen is to adhere to a strong oral health routine and to make sure they attend their regular cleanings. Teenage years are one to smile and laugh a lot, so teens should never feel embarrassed or ashamed of their teeth. Our office is here to discuss all of your options, so you can be proud of your smile.

     








  6. Keeping your child’s mouth healthy is crucial to their total body health. As parent’s and caregivers, we need to take them to the dentist for their required exams and cleanings, ensure they receive a balanced, healthy diet, encourage a healthy lifestyle and make sure their teeth are brushed twice daily and flossed at least once a day. Children don’t need to have all of their teeth to need to start flossing.

    The flossing part seems to be forgotten about by most patients. Once teeth touch each other, they need to be flossed. Sometimes it can be the front teeth and sometimes it’s just the back molars. If you are unsure, ask your dental team!

     

     

    Dr. Frankel shares 5 tips on how to keep flossing part of your child’s routine from the start:
    1) Floss every single night – PERIOD.
    2) Decorate your box of floss with stickers to get kids engaged
    3) Make a chart  or visual image to help children remember that brushing and flossing goes hand-in-hand.
    4) Have your child try to floss your teeth – play dentist!
    5) Watch a video on how to floss teeth – try YouTube!

    12 Reasons to See a Dentist
    Patients schedule appointments for a variety of reasons including anything from a routine hygiene cleaning to a toothache. It’s important to listen to your body and never ignore or put off any signs that something is not right in your mouth. Put your health first and make the appointment – the sooner a problem is detected the better and it could save you in the long run.

    Dental Home

    Here are 12 reasons you need to see a dentist:

    1) You experience pain or swelling in mouth, face or neck
    2) You have inflamed gums or a history of gum disease
    3) You are not proud of your smile
    4) Your dental history includes fillings, crowns, bridges – this work needs to be monitored.
    5) You have ongoing medical issues such as diabetes, eating disorders, cardiovascular disease or HIV positive.
    6) You are pregnant – it is safe to still go to the dentist.
    7) You have difficulty eating and chewing and avoid eating certain foods.
    8) You suffer from dry mouth
    9) You use tobacco of any form
    10) You experience jaw pain

  8. Never Too Early

     

    Brush This!

    Are you brushing your teeth correctly?

    It’s already Spring – you vowed to take better care of your teeth for the New Year. We all know that it’s crucial to brush your teeth in the morning and at night, but are we brushing them properly?

    Here are some best practices for brushing your teeth:
    1) Brush side to side on the outside of your teeth.
    2) Brush the inside of your teeth — this part tends to be forgotten!
    3) Brush for 2 minutes – try singing the ABC’s in your head three times. You can also break it into four parts: 30 sec outside top, 30 sec outside bottom, 30 sec inside top and 30 sec inside bottom.
    4) Apply correct pressure — not too hard, not too soft. Your pressure should feel comfortable.
    You can also watch a video for brushing techniques here!
    Don’t forget to floss your teeth regularly as well. Flossing and brushing go hand and hand for optimal oral hygiene

     








  9. Children’s Dental Health Month

     

    Children First
    Celebrate Children’s Dental Health Month with a New Change

    Regularly Scheduled Dental Visits

     

    February is Children’s Dental Health month. In honor of this topic, we encourage parent’s and caregivers to choose one healthy habit for their children to focus on changing. Parent’s and caregivers are the best examples for their children.
    Here are some examples of healthy habits to focus on this month:

    Parents Make the Difference

    1) Think before you drink….make sure you are serving water or milk as a beverage.
    2) Swap a sugary, processed snack for fruit, vegetables or cheese.
    3) Brush your teeth together – make this a family event and teach your children how to correctly care for their teeth
    4) Floss your teeth together – flossing is such a dreaded part of the oral hygiene routine. Enforce that brushing and flossing go hand-in-hand! Create a sticker chart to keep track and to set a reminder!
    5) Educate them on what the dentist and his team do. Teach them the proper language used at the dentist. Here is a handy chart to get started! 

    Healthy Habits Start Young

    Give kids a reason to smile and show off their bright smile!
