Meet The Dr. Poz Team
The Dr. Poz team is an outstanding group of dedicated dental professionals with long experience in dental health and they have worked together for a considerable length of time.
This means you see the same faces each time you come in and everyone on the team knows you – not just as another patient or as a name on a chart, but they know and care about you – the person. You will benefit from the continuity of care that is only possible when you are treated by the same people over time.
Edward Posluszny, DDS
Dr. Posluszny, “Dr. Poz” to all who know him, has been a practicing dentist in Toledo since 1981. He has built his practice based on caring personal concern and individualized treatment for every patient.
Dr. Poz puts your well-being first, assuring you of a consistently high standard of professional dental care, attending 100+ hours of continuing education annually (2.5x the required number) to keep up-to-date on the latest dental healthcare developments, as well as new procedures and technology.
When he’s not caring for patients, Dr. Poz can be found keeping young and fit on the golf course, playing pickleball, and working out at the Y. He also enjoys watching or attending football games to cheer on his alma mater the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame.
Dr. Poz also makes spending time with family a priority. He is married to Donna, a licensed social worker, and they are the proud parents of three girls and have two grandsons.
Their oldest daughter received her undergraduate degree from Miami University and graduated in May 2005 from The Ohio State University School of Dentistry. Her husband is also a dentist and oral surgeon in a practice near Cleveland where they are raising their sons, Jack and Sam. Their middle daughter graduated from Villanova, is married, and now working and living near Chicago. Their youngest daughter graduated from the University of Dayton, received her Master’s Degree from the University of Pittsburgh, is married and living in Washington, DC.
Dr. Poz is proud of his Polish heritage and his father Ed, a sausage maker at Wardynski’s & Sons, Inc. sausage company in Buffalo, NY. The company was started by Dr. Poz’s maternal grandfather in 1919.
Linda has worked in the dental field since 1978 and joined Dr. Posluszny in 2000. Prior to that, she worked 15 years for an orthodontist and then moved into general dentistry. Her orthodontic background provides additional insight for treating our young patients.
Linda has two adult boys. She loves to spend time with her mom, her granddaughter, and great-niece. She enjoys remodeling interiors, especially painting, and loves to bike, camp, walk, and work out – and always enjoys a good football game.
Wendy has been in the dental field since 2000 and began working with Dr. Posluszny when Dr. Hein joined the practice in 2014. She has assisted with orthognathic and oral surgery, as well as extensive experience in endodontics and general dentistry.
Wendy has an adult son, daughter-in-law, and new grandson. She has several pets including a dog, several cats, and she also raises bantam chickens. She enjoys spending time with family and friends and riding bikes (both pedal and motorcycles). She also volunteers yearly at the Fulton County Fair.

Kristy has worked for Dr. Posluszny since 2000.
