  1. 10.) 2 minutes seems like a long time to brush your teeth. While brushing divide your mouth into 4 different sections. Spend 30 second brushing each section, allowing a full 2 minutes of teeth brushing each time you brush!

    9.) Be sure that you are brushing correctly. Softly brush up and down or circular on your teeth while aiming the bristles at a 45 degree angle toward the gum line. Be sure that you are not brushing horizontally, which can lead to abrasions.

    8.) To be “Earth Smart” this Earth Day, be sure to turn off the water while brushing. Don’t mindlessly brush your teeth with the water running! Turn on the water only to rinse your mouth and toothbrush.

    7.) A few signs of oral cancer include: a sore, irritation, lump, or thick patch in your mouth, lips, or throat; a feeling that something is caught in your throat; difficulty chewing or swallowing; or difficulty moving your jaw or tongue. If you suspect you may have any of these symptoms, be sure to call Frankel Dentistry to get an exam.

    6.) Frankel employees know their patients. Once you become a patient at Frankel Dentistry, you are part of a close dental family. It is truly a place where everyone knows your name. Knowing the patients is one of the reasons they love what they do! Call today to join the Frankel Dentistry family!

    5.) Oral cancer includes cancers of the mouth and pharynx. Typically people who are at risk for this type of cancer are those who smoke cigarettes, use chewing tobacco, and drink alcohol.

    4.) Be sure to rinse your toothbrush after you brush. Bacteria can grow on an un-rinsed toothbrush. The next time you brush, you are putting these bacteria back into your mouth. Be sure to rinse your brush off after each time you use it.

    3.) Frankel Dentistry is not here to lecture you about your oral health. Instead it is their focus to help each patient understand the importance of routine cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluoride and how each one of these things are all helpful in ensuring a healthy smile.

    2.) Large amounts of sugary foods pose a significant threat to your dental health and promote plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that constantly forms on your teeth and gums. Every time bacteria come in contact with sugar and starches in the mouth, they produce acids that attack your teeth. These acids leave your mouth more susceptible to enamel erosion, cavities, tooth decay and gum disease.

    1.) April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month. Oral cancer rates are significantly increasing. According to the Oral Cancer Foundation, nearly 42,000 Americans will be diagnosed with oral cancer this year. Please contact Frankel Dentistry to schedule an appointment and get a screening.

    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 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.

    Louise Kahle, Owner of Sassy Boomer GIrls

    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


  4. Beachbody, the company the brings you P90X, Insanity, and Turbo Kick, has a Frankel smile. That’s right, Angie Green, one of the trainers that you will see on many of the videos of Charlene Johnson brings her Frankel smile on set.

    Angie Green

    Angie Green began her life as a fitness instructor while in college at BGSU. Upon graduating with her Masters, Angie accepted a position at the University of Toledo REC Center in 2001. However, it was when she decided that she wanted to work for Charlene Johnson that her life took an amazing new turn. After an extensive tryout, Angie was selected to be a member of the demo team for TurboKick.

    After Angie had her son, she needed a new family dentist. That is when she joined the Frankel Dentistry family. “I love it at Frankel Dentistry,” she said. “I am very pleased with they treat my son and take care of all our needs.”

    Angie, however, is beginning a new adventure. Being a Beachbody trainer, means there is a lot of traveling. In fact, not too long ago, Angie traveled to train the Toronto BlueJays in an Insanity workout.  Therefore, Angie is no longer working at UT. Today, her new adventure is focusing on her Beachbody career not only as a star of the videos but also a coach.

    Senior Lourdes University volleyball player and Springfield native, Keyonna Gregory, was recently selected to participate in the Team AIST America- Dominican Republic Tour  in June of 2015. This tour will be made up of elite collegiate athletes that coaches specially invite to represent the USA and compete internationally.

    Keyonna originally began her athletic career as a basketball player, but during her sophomore year of high school decided to give volleyball a try and has never looked back. “I just love the game so much and I can’t wait to see where my future takes me,” she said. This past season, Keyonna was selected to the American Volleyball Coaches Association All-Region Team as well as First-Team All-Conference.

    Growing up in Northwest Ohio, Keyonna loves being close to home and her family, but she is looking forward to spreading her wings. “This is an opportunity of a lifetime and I am so excited,” she said.

    Keyonna was quick to tell us that she will be home a few times a year and plans to visit Dr. Frankel for her routine cleanings and exams. “Dr. Frankel has been the only dentist I have ever known,” she said. “I trust him with my teeth and smile. He really is the best.”

    We would like to wish Keyonna and the entire Lourdes University Volleyball team the best of luck as they prepare for their upcoming season. Go Gray Wolves!

    If you would like to make a small donation to Keyonna as she prepares to take her skills to the next level and represent USA, please contact our Toledo office and we will give you further details. On behalf of Keyonna, “Thank You in advance.”
