Dr. Tyra Manso and MPDC Team

Focused on prevention, Dr. Tyra Manso and her team at Montclair Pediatric Dental Care strive to take the fear out of dental visits. Patients receive a cavity risk assessment, oral hygiene instruction, diet counseling and prevention plans.

“We promote routine dental care starting at age one so we can work closely with families on preventing decay and establishing a dental home,” says Dr. Manso, a mom and board-certified pediatric dentist.

Dr. Manso utilizes state-of-the-art technology in her modern, family-friendly practice. The office was designed to be light, airy and cheerful. “We have lots of cool stuff for kids and have created a relaxing, calm atmosphere,” she says. “We focus on building relationships and removing the stigma that going to the dentist is a scary experience—our patients really seem to enjoy their time with us.”

Dr. Manso earned her DDS from the University of Michigan School of Dentistry and completed her pediatric specialty at Lutheran Medical Center. She serves on the board of trustees for a local hospital and is proud to serve her home community of Montclair.

“Dr. Manso was amazing at relaxing and talking my 9 year old through a tooth extraction. My daughter was a nervous wreck up until she started to chat with Dr. Manso about the process which eased my nerves but more importantly my daughter’s. Not one tear shed at all during or after the process.” – A.W., Montclair

“Dr. Tyra Manso provides stellar pediatritic dental care, but that is just the tip of the iceberg. Equally if not more impressive is her ability to engage and interact with kids with kindness and compassion. We love that she takes the time to make appointments a learning experience. She has inspired my kids to get involved STEM and learn more about dentistry. She is a medical hero for what she does and how she does it.” – A.L., Montclair

“I’m so grateful my daughter is growing up with such a compassionate, gentle and fun dentist. She doesn’t even flinch when she hears it’s time to visit Dr. Manso. Amazing!!!” – N.M., Montclair
