  1. Candy Collectors


    Halloween Candy Buyback

    We all know that children may get money from the tooth fairy, but did you know that children can receive candy from a dentist? That’s right! During the month of November, kids trade in their Halloween candy for cash during our Annual Candy Buyback. Frankel Dentistry has been offering this opportunity for over ten years. Dr. Frankel wants to remind kids that while Halloween is a fun holiday, eating too much sugar can lead to cavities and unhealthy habits. Candy, as well as hurting children’s teeth, can lead to hyperactivity and weight gain. Our Annual Candy Buyback is an opportunity not only to educate young children on the importance of oral health, but it is a way to promote the significance of giving back and show what power a community has.   

    Giving Hard Earned Candy to Local Toledo Area Troops


    Every year, Dr. Frankel donates all the treats that have been collected to a local group to be sent to Toledo troops serving overseas. This year, we collected over a ton of candy for our troops! This large donation would not be possible without the help of our wonderful community. Frankel Dentistry would like to say a big thank you to the residents of Elmore, Ohio who brought in over 20 pounds of candy and collected no money. Their generosity reflects our shared value to serve all. We are grateful to all those have donated candy to our Halloween Candy buyback. It is hard to believe that this has been our annual event for over 10 years. That’s a lot of sweet community support!

    Children Write Notes and Create Cards for our Troops

    We would also like to highlight a few of our wonderful children who not only brought in 10 pounds of candy but added a personal touch to their donation. A young boy wrote a letter to be sent to the troops with his large donation. In the letter, the gentleman sends thanks to the troops with his kind words and sweet treats. It reads, “Two Twix for both of your fighting arms, a big Sour Patch Kids for your power, Sweet Tarts for your boldness, and a Reeses Cup for your sweetness.” Talk about a sweet kid.

    These Children are Changing Lives a Smile at a Time.

    Next year if you are in the Toledo, Ohio area and have excess Halloween Candy. Drs. Frankel and Puhl have a sweet solution. Donate your candy!

  2. New Addition for 73 Year Old

    New Englander, Dr. Rebecca Gofman has left the Constitution State for our Midwest Buckeye State! We are thrilled she did. Frankel Dentistry and Frankel and Puhl Dentistry welcome her as a new associate to their Maumee location.

    Frankel Dentistry has been serving the Toledo area since 1946. Their always better approach means two locations, convenient hours and the best staff.

    Summer is here and with hot weather comes cold drinks. Water helps prevent staining on your teeth and flushes away sugars and acids.  Water also helps keep your saliva levels high which is important. Saliva is a defense against decay.

    Refreshing and Healthy

    There are many health benefits from drinking water:

    • Increased energy
    • Promotes weight loss
    • Improves skin complexion
    • Boosts Immunity

    Not to mention, you can save money by drinking water! The best beverage choice you can make is water. If you want to spice up your flavor, add fresh citrus like lemons or oranges. If you’re looking for a healthy snack, try watermelon which is hydrating and nutritious.

    Water is delicious!

     








  4. Spring Smiles

    Spring Clean Your Food Choices

    Have you done your spring cleaning? Is your house fresh and clean? Did you add to the list your pantry and refrigerator? A healthy diet will help support a healthy mouth. If you can take the time to make your own food and snacks, you will gain nutrients and skip on the added sugars and fats. Most processed, packaged foods are packed with unwanted additives and sugars.

    Healthy Snacks bring Smiles

    Here are a few of our favorite swaps:

    • Trade deep fried chips for heirloom popcorn.
    • Ditch bottled salad dressing and make your own.
    • Switch out ketchup or ranch dipping sauce, try hummus
    • Avoid the drive-through fast food habit, plan a crock-pot meals.
    • Trade boxed macaroni and cheese for homemade whole grain pasta and low fat cheese.
    • Instead of sugary popsicles, try homemade popsicles made with yogurt or real fruit juice.
    • Stop the syrupy soda pop, bring on water with a slice of lemon.

    Healthy Smiles

                                                                                                                                                                Healthy Smiles

     








  5. What keeps people from going to the dentist?

    We have found that fear, time, no sense of urgency and budget are roadblocks for seeing your dentist.

    What do you do at Frankel Dentistry to address a fearful patient?

    Offering complimentary consultation and tours as well as listening to our patients keeps even the most hesitant patient coming on a regular basis.

    What about time? We are all busy.

    Dr. Frankel decided while still a dental student his patients would not wait. We also see emergencies the same day.

    Why go to the dentist? My teeth feel fine.

    A healthy mouth promotes a healthy body. Dental disease is often silent. Diabetes, heart disease and stroke are associated with your oral health. New studies indicate many types of cancer and even Alzheimer’s disease show a link to oral health.

    How much will it cost?

    We offer a complimentary benefits estimate of dental insurance as well as Care Credit payment options including interest free.
