Meet Dr. Jon Frankel
Dr. Frankel was inspired by his father, an innovative man who grew up playing handball, tennis, and stickball on the streets of New York and moved to Toledo after completing his degree in dentistry from the Ohio State University after World War II. In 1992, upon graduation with a doctoral of dentistry science (DDS) also from the Ohio State University, Dr. Frankel joined his father in private practice, where his father continued to inspire him by instilling in him a passion for the latest technologies in the field. Today, Frankel Dentistry is one of the best dental practices in the Toledo area, offering the latest technology and advancements in general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry as well as aesthetic dentistry.
While Dr. Frankel spends a majority of his time dedicating his life to his practice and the well-being of his patients, he is also a dedicated father and husband. During his weekends he enjoys spending time with his family. In fact, he takes much pride in his kids and his wife, Nikki, who is an ER nurse at Toledo Hospital.
When younger, Dr. Frankel was an excellent tennis player, achieving a Western Ranking for junior tennis. Although he still plays tennis, in his spare time, Dr. Frankel is an avid golfer who has a handicap of 8. He also enjoys supporting local based sporting teams including the Detroit Tigers, Lions, and Pistons; the Cleveland Browns; and the Ohio State Buckeyes.
Dr. Frankel is proud of his local, Toledo roots and thankful for the opportunities given to him by his father. Since taking over for his father over 20 years ago, Dr. Frankel and his staff have been dedicated to giving the people of the Toledo area customized care; a warm, friendly environment; and unique, unbelievable smiles that last a lifetime. These are all qualities and traditions started by his father and what continue to make Dr. Frankel and his practice one of Toledo's finest.
Meet Dr. Amber Puhl
When asked why she decided to study dentistry, Dr. Amber Puhl answers very simply, "There is nothing better than helping people in your community get a healthy smile."
Raised in Delta, Ohio, Dr. Puhl received her bachelors of science degree from the University of Dayton, majoring in biology. After graduating, she attended dental school at the Ohio State University and graduated in 2006.
While completing her degree, Dr. Puhl knew that it was important for her to return home, to Northwest Ohio, because her family as well as her husband's family was in the area. Before she graduated she came into contact with Dr. Frankel and was hired as an associate dentist.
Immediately, Dr. Puhl loved the philosophy of Dr. Frankel's practice. She looked up to him and admired the quality of care Frankel Dentistry provided for their patients. Therefore, in 2008 she decided to become a long-term partner with Dr. Frankel and bought into the practice, creating Frankel and Puhl Dentistry in Maumee.
Family has always been one of Dr. Puhl's priorities. In her spare time she is busy chasing around her young twins and spending time with her husband and family. She also enjoys running, and gardening.
However, at work, Dr. Puhl also considers her patients part of her extended family. The relaxed, comfortable feel of the office is sure to make any patient feel at home.
The Frankel Dentistry Team
Dr. Hayder Al Janabi
Dr. Hayder Al Janabi comes to Frankel Dentistry as a recent graduate from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts. He was recognized on the Tufts Dean’s List in 2020 and 2021. As a child, Dr. Al Janabi watched his brother suffer from a devastating broken tooth, he admired and looked up to the dentist who helped bring his brother's smile back. He knew from that moment he wanted to pursue dentistry. Originally from Iraq, Dr. Al Janabi obtained two DDS degrees overseas in 2013. Upon graduation he began serving through a Polyclinic as a general and cosmetic dentist, placing implants, veneers, as well working in orthodontics and full mouth rehabilitation. One of his favorite quotes is “A genuine smile comes from the heart, but a healthy smile needs good dental care.” Wayne Chrisia
Outside of dentistry, Dr. Al Janabi loves to ride horses, hunt, and cook. His favorite entree to serve is a fresh lightly seared Tuna salad with figs. He loves traveling whether it be two hours north to visit his family farm, an international flight to see the beautiful land of Turkey, or a visit to the Real Madrid stadium to watch his favorite team! A few essentials Dr. Al Janabi cannot live without are his loved ones and air.
Frankel Dentistry admires his dedication to patient care and gold-standard dental treatment and we are excited to have Dr. Al Janabi on our team helping Change Lives a Smile at a Time.
Dr. Erin Waples
We are elated to introduce our newest addition to Frankel Dentistry, an Ohio native and former Ohio State Buckeye, Dr. Erin Waples D.D.S! Dr. Waples was born and raised in the small village of Mogadore in Northeastern Ohio. She grew up loving soccer, track, and the great outdoors, spending dozens of weekends camping and hiking with her family.
Dr. Waples attended the University of Akron where she studied Biomedical Engineering. She knew she wanted a fulfilling, impactful career while still being able to maintain a work life balance. Post graduation she began shadowing different career fields and discovered her passion for dentistry. “There is something so special about working with your hands, touching the lives of patients, and creating long lasting relationships and friendships.”
Dr. Waples pursued her dental degree at THE Ohio State University. She spent her time in Columbus playing intramural soccer, attending Buckeye games with friends, and serving the community through the Delta Sigma Delta organization. She also met her fiance and fellow Frankel and Puhl dentist, Dr. Westmeyer. These two are thrilled and grateful to serve the NWO community through their passions.
In her spare time, Dr. Waples is still an avid adventurer. Camping, hiking, and exploring new destinations! When indoors she enjoys opening up a good book (now accepting recommendations!) and spending time with her fiance and their goldendoodle, Kennedy.

Dr. Anmol Dhaliwal
It seems appropriate we celebrate the addition of Dr. Anmol Dhaliwal to Frankel & Puhl Dentistry. She was born and raised in Edmonton; Alberta known as Canada’s Festival City. Edmonton hosts over 50 festivals annually, so this means Dr. Dhaliwal knows nothing less than a good time.

This is the only program of its kind in the United States. Passionate about helping those in need she was changing lives a smile at a time long before she joined our practice.
Moving to Ohio to be with her significant other she was happy to find a dental home that mirrored her vocational aspirations. In her free time, you will find her traveling, cooking, and exploring new restaurants. Her most recent local favorites include Registry Bistro and Benchmark.

Dr. Philip Dietel
Dr. Dietel was born and raised in Chaska, Minnesota. If you have never heard of Chaska, you are not the only one. Hank Snow, a Canadian-American Country singer referred to Chaska in his song, “I have been everywhere.” Currently there are approximately 24,000 inhabitants. Chaska has a long past. Originally inhabited by Mound Builders and later the Dakota. The ancient mounds can be found today in the city square. Chaska refers to the first male born child in the language of the Dakota. More recently there are two native Chashassan actors in the movie Fargo. The doctors, health care providers, and staff at Frankel Dentistry are pleased to welcome their favorite Chaskan native son, Phillip Dietel, DMD.
At the young age of 15, Dr. Dietel knew he wanted to be a dentist. His college advisors suggested his pre-dental track. He received his Bachelor of Science in nutrition and food science from the University of Minnesota. (Yes, he is a great cook and baker. His carrot cake was the highlight of last year’s Thanksgiving Dinner.) After graduating Midwestern University Dental School in 2018, Dr. Dietel sought to further his training and completed a one-year General Practice Residency at Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton, Ohio. Dr. Dietel is happy to call Ohio home but will always remain a Gopher fan. He enjoys reading, and has taken a keen interest in world history. He also enjoys traveling and documenting his trips through photography.
Dr. Dietel strives to provide the highest quality of dental care and to treat his patients as if they are family. This means not only caring for short term needs but developing long term goals and working to achieve a healthy smile. His innate abilities and unique aptitude are changing lives a smile at a time.
We are sure he is missed in Chaska but feel fortunate to have him here in Ohio at Frankel Dentistry.
Dr. Milad Karim
