Read More About Linda
When I graduated from High School in Toledo I never thought I would remain in the area I grew up in. Here I am with over 15 years under my belt with Dr. Herkert and all I can say is, “Time flies!” I love coming to work every day and working with ‘my other family.’ Now that my kids are out on their own I enjoy spending time with my husband, in my garden and with my puppies. Looking forward to the next ten years!

I’ve lived in the area for a little over 3 years now and have been so lucky to join this wonderful dental team. Dr. Herkert and the girls made me feel welcome and at home right away. I’ve been a dental hygienist for 26 years now and there is no place I’d rather work!
My goal for each patient is to give you the best dental experience I can while I help you to have a healthy smile. While we talk about your oral health I want you to feel comfortable, relaxed and confident that you are in good hands.
When I’m not here my husband and I are out exploring new towns and spending time with family and friends. We both love beach combing, metal detecting, antiquing and museums.
Looking forward to seeing you soon!

First of all, call me Char! I am the newest member of the team but I feel like I have been here forever. I began my dental hygiene career in 2003. It’s hard to believe I have been practicing dental hygiene for 16 years! I enjoy establishing long lasting relationships with my patients and educating patients about their individual needs. Any free time I have is spent with my family, friends and horses!

I love my job. Because while in a perfect world, everyone could afford to have a movie star smile—the reality is many patients put off their care. My goal is to make that smile happen for as many people as I can. I consider it a challenge to ‘work the system’ to maximize the benefits paid by insurance companies and work some magic with creative financing for my cash patients. In the end, everybody wins!
I am Canadian with dual citizenship. I have a BFA in Fine Arts from UBC. And I have a really hard time picking my favorite hockey team when the USA plays Canada in the Olympics. I’m currently living in Toledo so you may see me drive by with a van load of barking dogs heading out for our daily walk…

The first and last person you will see in our office will probably be me! I may have been placed at the front desk because of my love for people. My personal philosophy has always been to Live, Love and Laugh with as many friends and new friends as possible. Living in a small community is a true blessing which I don’t take for granted. Meanwhile…while you wait, let me spoil you and make you a refreshing cup of coffee or tea while we catch up! I look forward to seeing you soon!

I started working with Dr. Herkert many, many years ago… but after 24 years, who’s counting? I’m here because I love Dr. Herkert! He is caring, ethical and a great dentist! When I’m not working or out walking, I’m often being creative (maybe you’ve seen the staff wearing my jewelry) or dancing with my BFF at a country music festival…or enjoying time with my family.

I am so happy to have become part of this amazing team, who have made me feel like ‘family’ from the moment I walked through the door. I grew up here and worked as an Orthodontic Assistant for 15 years. I then became a Certified Dental Assistant. Now… 18 years later I still look forward to coming in to work every day! My favorite way to spend my free time is with my wonderful family, friends and my adorable lab, “Maddie”

I met Dr. Herkert as a patient a few years ago. I remember feeling really impressed with how warm and professional the staff are…and thought how great it would be to work here. Little did I know I would fall in love with dentistry…job shadow with Dr Herkert, go back to school and end up in my dream job!
In my spare time I’ll be out paddle boarding with my hubby, volunteering or most likely…crafting it up!
All About the Technology
Technology is an important part of the dentistry we provide at Toledo Dental Care. We hope this provides some insight into the investment we have made on your behalf.
At Toledo Dental Care, we use digital x-rays, which have several advantages over traditional film based x-rays. Digital x-rays allow us to take x-rays with 1/5 of the radiation that you would receive from traditional dental x-rays. The worry of exposure to excess radiation is eliminated. Learn more about digital x-rays.
X-rays give us a clear view of what we can’t see such as decay between the teeth. An intraoral camera gives the patient a view of what the dentist sees. An intraoral camera is a device that is about the size of a toothbrush. Broken fillings, fractured teeth, decay or any other dental problem can be viewed so that we can discuss with you any treatment needed. With a clear understanding of your dental needs we can decide together what the best treatment is for you. Read more about intraoral camera use.
Particularly when approaching dental implant treatment, having a thorough, full digital scan of your head is absolutely necessary. A cone beam scan assists Dr. Greg Herkert in planning an accurate and effective placement of your implant treatment. Because Dr. Greg Herkert is trained in the placement and restoration of CAMLOG Biotechnologies and dental implants as well as 3M ESPE “mini implants”, this technology is of utmost importance. Learn more about cone beam technology.
We use ultrasonic scalers for most adult dental cleanings. These devices use ultrasonic vibrations to help break down the plaque and calculus on the teeth that cause gingivitis and periodontal disease. The ultrasonic cleaners create microscopic bubbles that implode on the surface of the tooth, killing microbes and removing plaque and tartar in the process. Our instruments use a thin tip to better navigate in the periodontal pockets to help maintain optimal gingival health.
The procedure uses water and/or an antimicrobial liquid called chlorhexadine. It can remove tartar buildup in hard-to-reach areas, with no damage to the tooth enamel. Manual scaling often uses pressure for cleaning, while the vibration produced by the scaling tip of an ultrasonic scaler is barely perceptible. This makes ultrasonic cleaning suitable to those with sensitive teeth. The cleaning process is faster than manual scaling, making your visit more comfortable.
After your teeth have been cleaned with the ultrasonic cleaner, your teeth will be hand scaled to check for any residual deposits and then polished.
