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.

Montclair Pediatric Dental Care is a family-friendly and modern dental office conveniently located in Montclair Center.

“ 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.”
