Dr. Jonathan Mahn, B.Sc. Hons., D.D.S.
Dr. Jonathan M. Mahn (Dr. Jon) joined the Paris Dental Centre in July of 2008. He is a general dentist who has completed additional training in the administration of Oral and Intravenous Sedation, as certified by the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario.
Jon majored in Biology at McMaster University, where he graduated with Honours, Bachelor of Science (B.Sc. Hons) degree. He then continued his training at the University of Western Ontario where he graduated with his Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) degree.
Jon was fortunate to be accepted as a General Practice Resident at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto where he received additional training and certification in Intravenous Sedation, Oral Sedation, Nitrous Oxide administration, and Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS). Here, Jon also had the opportunity to observe and assist in the O.R. on oral and maxillofacial surgery cases and alongside various dental specialists in the Sunnybrook Dental Clinic.
Jonathan volunteered working in the summer at the Children’s Clinic at the University of Western Ontario where he first had the opportunity to work extensively with children. As part of his Residency, he also volunteered in the Sandy Lake Reserve, Sioux Lookout Zone, Ontario where he spent 3 weeks providing dentistry to the local population who does not have a local dentist. Here, in addition to performing an extensive amount of treatment to children and adults in need, Jon was able to assist children in the local schools, educating them about the importance of regular oral hygiene and a proper diet.
Jonathan hopes to pursue future opportunities providing dentistry in under-serviced communities both in Canada and abroad. He currently enjoys traveling, baseball, basketball, tennis, weight lifting, and has a thorough interest in music. Jon was formerly a pianist for Flattstreet – a jazz/funk sextet, and the McMaster Big Band and Jazz Ensemble. He has completed his Grade 10 piano with the Royal Conservatory of Music. Jonathan has lived within the Paris surroundings for most of his life and has been playing baseball for the Brant Cardinals in recent summers.
Dr. Jon is currently very excited for his future with Paris Dental Centre and is currently treating the children at Smile City. He performs treatment with and without Oral Sedation and Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas) and offers treatment with General Anesthetic at Brantford General Hospital for those with greater needs. Jon also treats adults in Paris Dental Centre and administers Oral Sedation, Nitrous Oxide and IV sedation for Dentistry While You Drowse for anxious adults.
