Dr. Mohn and Dr. LaFrance love giving back to the community by providing dental care to those in need and meeting people of different cultures. A few of these notable experiences include mission trips to the Kingdom of Tonga and to the Island of Jamaica as well as local community service organizations.
Dr. Mohn worked 8 hours a day with 16 student doctors, general dentists, endodontists, and periodontists to provide emergent care to approximately 400 underserved patients in the Kingdom of Tonga. She also performed rotations in a hospital setting to extract teeth on patients in need. It brought Dr. Mohn great joy to provide surgical, endodontic, restorative, and emergency dental care to help brighten the smiles of the residents. Lastly, Dr. Mohn provided education on proper oral hygiene and preventive care to help children and adults alike maintain the best care possible.
While on a mission trip with her dental school, Dr. LaFrance had the opportunity to provide dental care to families in Jamaica. The group was able to bring multiple portable dental units to complete treatment such as fillings and extractions in rural areas of Jamaica. She truly enjoyed meeting the locals who were very appreciative of the services. Dr. LaFrance continues her love for service by volunteering in community service events such as Give Kids a Smile, the San Jose Clinic, the Buddy Walk, and Special Olympics.
Dr. Mohn and Dr. LaFrance look forward to helping the underserved in the United States and abroad in the future by continuing to provide compassionate care with a smile to those without access to quality dental care.
