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

“ I literally never write reviews but for Dr. Manso, I have to
sing her praises. She and her team at Montclair Pediatric Dental
are top notch. I have been taking my 2 kids there since we moved
to Montclair and she and her practice are amazing. They are so
professional, timely, organized, have a beautiful and clean
office, and most important, they are loving and gentle with the
kids. I can't say enough good things about her. I'm thankful to
have found a doctor and a practice that I trust and that my kids
can grow with over the years.”
