MPDC is a prevention-focused dental office. All of our patients receive a cavity risk assessment, oral hygiene instruction, and an age appropriate prevention plan. We believe that all children are unique and require different approaches in dealing with their behavior, guiding their dental growth and development, and preventing future dental problems. Dr. Tyra J. Manso is a Board-Certified pediatric dentist and her practice philosophy is based on the guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD).
Montclair Pediatric Dental Care is a family-friendly and modern dental office conveniently located in Montclair Center. The inspiration for our office is children’s creativity and artistry, which can be seen in our décor. Our large windows provide ample natural light resulting in a calm setting. We use state-of-the-art energy efficient equipment and eco-friendly materials.
Our office, as well as the The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the American Dental Association (ADA), and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) all recommend establishing a "Dental Home" for your child by one year of age. Children who have a dental home are more likely to receive appropriate preventive and routine oral health care. Make Montclair Pediatric Dental Care your child's dental home today.What to Expect

"My daughter had her first dentist appt. this morning. We were a bit nervous but we were brave and ready. Let me just say... It was the best Dr. experience we’ve EVER had!!! The office is pristine. The staff is amazingly nice. They had an iPad mounted on the wall saying “Hello _____” with my daughter’s name. The design/decor was unbelievable. The equipment is state of the art and Dr. Manso’s bedside manner was 💯! I’m so happy we had a great first visit. And happy to report NO CAVITIES!!!!"
