Heaven’s New Hygienist — Sandy Kohlenberg

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our long-time hygienist, Sandy Kohlenberg. Sandy was diagnosed with a brain tumor in December bravely undergoing both chemo and radiation treatment before finally succumbing Thursday afternoon, May 13, with her husband Larry by her side.

Sandy was the first employee hired by Dr. Poz in August 1983, shortly after beginning his practice 38 years ago. Over those years, her passion for dental health, professional care and focus on developing relationships with her patients endeared Sandy to a large, loyal and multi-generational dental following.

In addition to her Dr. Poz dental family, Sandy was passionate about gardening and her Ohio State Buckeyes.  She had a deep faith and was a devout member of St. Joan of Arc parish where she served on a variety of ministries and activities over the years.

Visitation will be at the Coyle Funeral Home, 1770 S. Reynolds Road, from 2-7 pm Thursday, May 20th, with the funeral liturgy and mass at 10 am Friday, May 21, at St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church, 5856 Heatherdowns Blvd.

So many patients, friends, and family are mourning her loss. We welcome you to share your feelings and your own “Sandy Stories” with us as a way to keep her memory alive in our hearts.
