Family dentists Edward Posluszny, D.D.S., and Ned Hein, D.D.S., recently combined their practices under one roof at 4841 Monroe Street in Toledo.

“Dr. Hein and I have known each other for more than 30 years,”Dr. Posluszny noted, adding that the two met in a study group shortly after college.“We always had a professional relationship but maintained separate practices until now. Our philosophies are very similar, we’re both family practitioners, and we see eye-to-eye on the types of treatments that we offer. We knew this would be a good fit.”

The partnership more than 30 years in the making can be chalked up to good timing, Dr. Posluszny explained. Dr. Hein simply needed to find a new space, and Dr. Posluszny had room for another dentist.

For patients, the merger means convenient access to a wider range of dental services as well as more immediate care for urgent needs. And for the doctors, the partnership will bring about the professional growth that naturally stems from combining and sharing knowledge and expertise.

“People learn by being with other people and absorbing other ideas, and I think that’s very important,”Dr. Hein added. “As professionals, we can urge each other to take that next step, and we can work together to accomplish the same goals.”

Together, Drs. Posluszny and Hein offer a full complement of services that includes pediatric dentistry, regular cleanings, crowns, cosmetic dentistry, laser surgery, root canals and teeth whitening, in addition to many other treatments–all performed using state-of-the-art equipment. The facility uses digital x-rays, which use up to 90 percent less radiation than conventional film x-rays, and Office Manager Marcia Willinger, who is also a Certified Hypnotherapist, is available to help calm the nerves of anxious patients.

Each dentist brings to the table varying strengths and interests that will be leveraged to benefit the patients and continue moving the practice forward. Drs. Posluszny and Hein will continue to treat their own patients, and new patients are always welcome.

“When someone’s been in practice as long as we have –Ned for 35 years and myself for 31 years – long-term patients become like family, and we want them to be comfortable with the new environment in case we’re covering for each other,”Dr. Posluszny said. “Dr. Hein and I both feel the same way: that our patients –whether they’re his or mine –are like family, and we need to make sure that our family is taken care of.”
