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

“Dr. Manso is a calming, efficient, pleasant dentist that get straight to the job. Whether she is extracting, taking X-rays, or general exam with my granddaughter, she is very pleasant and is able to manage a high strung patient such as my granddaughter. The office is extremely well kept and clean. I would never think to go anywhere else.”

"One word describes Dr. Manso and her staff...AMAZING! My children don't want to leave this clinic. I was impressed from the moment we walked in. The clinic is beautiful and kid friendly, the staff is courteous and kind, and Dr. Manso is professional and so personable that my children (4 and 6) don't even ask me to go back with them. You and your children will not be disappointed. Finally a dentist office that leaves you happy and wanting to come back."
