Steffany Mohan, DDS
Dr. Steffany Mohan
Owner & President of Plaza Dental Group

“It is an honor and a privilege to serve the patients in our practice; they are the reason I come to work with a smile on my face every day. I enjoy meeting new patients and getting to know them and their families as we work together to improve their oral health. I appreciate it when patients want to play an active role in their dental experience. I joined the oral healthcare field to help change the way people think about going to the dentist’s office. When patients tell me that they didn’t like to visit the dentist before, but now they love it, I know I’ve been successful!”

I moved to Iowa at the end Of February, and have been looking for a dentist that cared about their patients. When I found Plaza Dental Group, they were able to get me right in, and my experience from the when I walked in to the office, to the time I walked out after my first visit was beyond what I could have hoped for. Dr.Odland and his staff are incredible and made me feel comfortable from start to finish. They explained the next steps regarding my next appointments, and everything that was going to take place. I feel at ease knowing that I am being taken care of. All of my appointments have been great. The front staff is great as well! I can not say enough great things about this office!read more

I just switched to Plaza because it’s closer to my work/home and I’d give them 100 stars if I could! My hygienist Talia had amazing attention to detail (and I’m known to be very particular) and Dr. Odland’s chairside manner was amazing. I don’t know why I didn’t come here sooner!
