Patient Reviews for Dr. Manso

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.

The staff was very accommodating when I had to change my appointment several times due to sick kids. This was my daughter's first dentist appointment and Dr. Manso put her very much at ease--she was silly and conspiratorial but also authoritative when my daughter got a little "wiggly." There are so many thoughtful touches in this fun new office space and the doctor and the staff use them well (a flamingo bib matches the beautiful flamingo toothbrush, the green mirror is perfect for kids to hold, the painted ceiling for the kids to look at). My daughter is already excited about going back in 6 months

I can't say enough about Dr. Manso and everyone in the office. From our very first phone call to the visit itself, everything about our experience here was awesome. My 4 yo son didn't have a great experience with another pediatric dentist and was terrified to go back to the dentist. After his first visit with Dr. Manso, he's been asking me daily to go back to the dentist! Our 2-year old went for his first visit ever and cried the whole time but that didn't phase Dr. Manso! She still got his teeth brushed and polished without a second thought and was cheery and sweet throughout and my little guy also now can't wait to go back. They are so helpful with insurance, the office is beautiful; honestly, everything could not have been better. I so highly recommend Montclair Pediatric Dental.

Without a doubt, my daughter (and myself) have had the best experience with MPDC than any other dentist I have taken her to over the years. I have been to a few that either did not appeal to my daughter or their techniques were outdated along with their equipment. Dr. Manso is both amazing with parents and kids, knows how to talk on both levels, is clear, professional and caring. Her office is modern, open, clean and better designed than most people's homes. Which makes for a more pleasant experiment if you need to wait for a procedure. I absolutely love all her staff who are also highly professional and welcoming. We are so happy we have finally found our dentist and cannot positively recommend her enough!

Honestly, I wish I could give this practice more than five stars. The reception is always the best indication of what your experience will be at any doctor's office and with that said I knew early on that my experience at Montclair pediatric dental care would be phenomenal. From my initial phone call, Judy was friendly, informative, and super courteous. When I arrived at the office I was able to match that sweet personality to a face. Such a sweet soul.

The office has such ...a great ambiance and is super kid friendly! The dentist is typically a place that elicits anxiety in kids but the atmosphere and decor does a great job in setting the mood to facilitate calm and relaxation. There are even complimentary drinks! La Croix, water...I felt right at home!

Now on to the amazing Dr. Manso. She came into the waiting room to greet us. She was personable, friendly, and super funny! Amazing bed side manner. She made my 13 month old son's first experience at the dentist a super pleasant one. She was thorough and detailed. She even got me and my husband involved in today's cleaning to ensure we were able to carryover best practice in the home. Can you tell I loved our experience??

Thank you Dr. Manso! See you in 6 months!

I highly recommend this amazing practice!!!!

Just left after our first visit at Montclair Pediatric Dental Care. Dr. Manso & staff were so warm & friendly! Dr. Manso did a great job putting my (somewhat anxious) child immediately at ease! Her manner with him made a trip to the dentist so much fun! She also explained everything to me and allowed me the opportunity to ask plenty of questions. (Yes, I'm one of those moms!) Dr. Manso was patient with me as well and made me feel as though every question I had was important so each answer was given with thought & concern for my understanding and satisfaction. The office is clean and fun for children as well!

First let me start off by saying Wow! What a beautiful office with a wonderful staff! We were greeted right away and made comfortable as soon as we sat down. The Doctor was so nice and so sweet to us. She really took a lot of time to explain the xray's and treatment. My daughter is so afraid of needles but the doctor made sure she would be comfortable and not afraid. We look forward to continuing our treatment with this dentist. I would highly recommend this practice to any parent looking to give their kids a wonderful dental experience. Thanks again!

I highly recommend Montclair Pediatric Dental Care. Dr. Manso has provided exceptional dental services to all 3 of my children under the age of 7. She was able to smoothly handle all 3 personalities while providing thorough cleanings, preventative care, and hygiene education. She was caring yet professional while fielding questions from my little ones and myself. I am truly grateful to have such quality care so close to home!

Dr. Manso was the perfect choice for our daughter's first trip to the dentist. Not only was she great at putting our little one at ease, her enthusiasm and warmth actually made our visit fun! As a first time parent I had a few questions about our dental routine at home, and Dr. Manso answered them thoughtfully and without making me feel like a novice (pretty important for us dads!). A+.

Dr. Manso was a pure delight. I don't think my son was too nervous about going to the dentist, but I was nervous for him. She put us right at ease. One of his lower incisors was extracted to make room for a new one that had already surfaced. He handled it like a pro, because he had a great dentist on hand.

My bashful 5 year-old visited Dr. Manso when her first tooth was loose. She was pretty nervous about losing it. Dr. Manso easily put my daughter at ease with a mixture of age-appropriate jokes and her skilled hands. She even performed a sweet "ceremony" by presenting my daughter with a tooth necklace that she stored her tooth in and proudly wore around her neck. It was a great first experience for me and my daughter-no tears, no more fears. Thanks, Dr. Manso!

Dr. Manso has an impeccable way of managing children’s fears! My son was apprehensive, naturally, about visiting a new dentist. He needed a double extraction and we just knew it was going to be quite challenging! Once he saw the Nitrous Oxide nose mask, he began to panic; however, Dr. Manso portrayed it as a Superhero’s mask—hence, allowing my son to feel invincible. Our experience was an AMAZING one! I implore you to definitely visit Dr. Manso for your pediatric dental needs. She is calm, tactful, pleasant and will not disappoint.
