Marian Iskander Manson



Dr. Marian Iskander Manson is a Florida native. She received her bachelor’s degree at the University of Florida then attended Nova Southeastern University for Dental School, graduating in 2010 with a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree. Dr. Manson was then accepted into a 1-year AEGD residency program at the Miami VA Hospital. After practicing as a general dentist, she realized her passion was to specialize in dentistry for children. She happily matched at the University of Tennessee in Memphis, where she completed a 2-year pediatric dentistry residency. Dr. Manson completed her thesis in pediatric dental trauma and received her master’s in dental science degree (MDS).  As a resident, Dr. Manson worked at the prestigious St. Jude Children’s Hospital and Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital where she had extensive training in all aspects of pediatric dentistry, including advanced training in medically complex patients, pediatric sedation, and anesthesia.

She is board certified pediatric dentist and is a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.

Dr. Manson spent 6 years in San Diego, California, where she worked in private practice and at the Indian Health Council, where she provided high quality, comprehensive, care to an underserved population of children.   These experiences have positively shaped her decision-making and her passion lies in the ability to keep an open mind as each child and family offer a unique set of circumstances that warrant an individualized approach. She offers all levels of pharmacologic behavior guidance ranging from nitrous oxide inhalation, oral sedation, and IV sedation.

When she’s not in the office, you’ll find Dr. Manson at the beach or the park with her husband and two young children. Her son, Luca, may tell you that his mom’s favorite animal is an orca. Dr. Manson is proud to be back in her home state and believes that kindness and gratitude help communities flourish.

A quote from her favorite children’s books:

“Nothing beats kindness,’ said the horse. ‘It sits quietly beyond all things.”
