About Dr. Marty Frankel, DDS, FAGD
When Dr. Marty Frankel graduated from the University Of Toronto Faculty Of Dentistry in 1984 he began a journey as a lifelong learner. This journey has taken him to various locations in the world to study from some of the most brilliant and progressive minds in Dentistry.
Somewhere in the evolution of dentistry and medicine the mouth was conceptually separated from the rest of the body. We can’t “cut people off at the neck” and expect to maintain excellent health. The studies that Dr. Frankel has pursued constantly reinforce the holistic and intimate physiologic connections of the mouth to the rest of the body.
His mission is to help people become healthier, happier, and pain free by learning about and honoring those connections.
Before becoming passionately connected to dentistry, Dr. Frankel worked and played as a professional percussionist and drummer. He performed with the likes of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, The National Ballet of Canada, The Canadian Opera Company, The Stratford Festival, The National Arts Centre Orchestra in Ottawa, the late jazz singer Joe Williams, vibraphonists Red Norvo and Haygood Hardy, saxophonist Al Cohn, and others. He continues to have a great love for music ... especially Jazz!
Dr. Frankel lives in Toronto with his wonderful wife Nancy, and loves spending time with her, their children, and grandchildren.
