  1. Smile Enforcers

    October is Dental Hygiene Month

    Toledo Dentist Jon Frankel, DDS celebrates dental hygienists.  Dr. Frankel knows dentistry. His father, uncle and two cousins served the community through dental care as dentists. His aunt and sister have practiced dental hygiene for decades. Dentistry is in his DNA.

    Frankel Dentistry has served the Toledo, Ohio area since 1946.


    The hygienists at both the Toledo and Maumee locations of Frankel Dentistry report that the doctor, healthcare provider, staff team works together seamlessly.  It is the ideal dental practice for career dental hygienists. They are not shy to boast how proud they are to work at Frankel Dentistry.

    Love what you do. Serve all.

    Weekly meetings, monthly reviews, bimonthly training, and room for advancement make their careers in dental hygiene exciting. The collaboration of advanced technology and direct communication between doctors, healthcare providers, and patients take this dental practice to another level.

    Dr. Frankel and Dr. Puhl lead the Always Better approach.

    Patients notice the difference. They often mention that to their surprise they look forward to dental visits. One patient explained dental hygiene in an interesting analogy. “ If exploring my mouth was like the Lewis and Clark Expedition on the Oregon Trail, my hygienist would be Sacagawea. The trail scout and guide reporting findings to Dr. Lewis and Clark.”

    Your guide (dental hygienist) and doctor keep your smile healthy and beautiful.

    Patients are scheduled to see their dental hygienist every 3 or 6 months. Exams with the doctor are minimally an annual event.

    Olivia:

    I love building people’s confidence through their smiles.

    Sarah:

    I adore working with children. Parents who bring in their children at an early age are giving them a beautiful inheritance. These children are in position to enjoy a lifetime of oral health. A healthy mouth promotes a healthy body.

    Pamela:

    Dental Hygiene challenges the mind and warms the heart. It is ever evolving in diverse arenas: psychology, science, business, and art. Stretching oneself while enhancing the well-being of others both emotionally and physically. You must be grateful to enjoy a career that gives so much.

    Deb:

    I am a hygienist who started as a patient! I was a patient at Frankel Dentistry. My dental hygienist impressed me so much that I became one!

I am the Toledo location Dental Hygiene team leader, one if the Treatment Plan Concierges and actively seeing patients.  I love what I do!

    Jenny:

  2. 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.

  3. Frankel Dentistry has two locations, Toledo and Maumee employing close to 90 dental professionals. If you ask them, they will tell you they wouldn’t work anywhere else. How is that possible?

    The clues are obvious from the moment you contact either location. There are systems in place that make serving the community through dentistry efficient and convenient. Once at one of the offices, it is clear, these dental professionals love what they do and know what they are doing.

    Frankel Dentistry has defined the best dental experience. They live it.

    How is it possible they are always better? Continued training and constant communication through the EOS business model L10 meetings eliminate big problems by addressing small issues. Recently the entire group read What the Heck is EOS?  They made it into a book club activity. Chapters were reviewed and discussed together.

    Halloween candy buy back.  The staff and doctors at Frankel Dentistry assist each other. Birthdays and anniversaries are celebrated. Personal goals are shared and supported. Service to others is seen not only by their two free dental days and

    It makes sense that the annual State of the Business meeting was filled with laughter. It was fun. Reviewing where they have been, reiterating where they are and forecasting where they are going couldn’t have been a better experience.

    Frankel Dentistry is changing lives a smile at a time for patients and each other.

  7. September is a busy month. Children are back in school with homework, sports and extracurricular activities. Tired parents, grandparents and caregivers often want to grab something quick to eat. Whether home or on the run, what is the healthiest approach to eating when stressed?

    Feeling the Stress? What to Avoid!
    Everyone can feel some type of stress now and then. For some people, reaching for comfort food may help to provide relief – but is it really beneficial to your health?
    Studies have shown that foods high in sugar (donuts, ice cream, pastries) may provide an immediate high, but are often leave you tired and hungry. This also applies to highly processed foods (processed foods or fried foods). Foods high in salt (chips, fried foods) can leave you feeling dehydrated and bloated.
    What to eat instead? Try these options:
    – Craving something salty? Try avocado toast
    – Need a sweet fix? Opt for dark chocolate or dark chocolate covered almonds
    – Try to pack a snack or meal vs. running to a drive-through
    Not only does a healthy diet benefit your overall health, but your teeth will thank you for it as well! Make a new habit to reach for nutritious snacks and meals – you will feel better and less stressed.
