Dr. Robert Mansman
Dr. Robert Mansman, D.D.S., M.S.D – Owner of Pediatric Dental Center of Frederick – I am originally from the Finger Lakes region of Upstate NY and moved to Richmond, VA when I was 15 years old. It was there where I went to undergrad at VCU graduating with a BS is Biology, Magna Cum Laude and University Honors. From there I attended the Medical College of Virginia School of Dentistry and obtained my DDS degree, Cum Laude. Shortly after graduation, I joined the Army and began a one-year AEGD residency at Fort Meade, MD. Following completion of that, I began my second residency in pediatrics at VCU, again in Richmond, where I was named chief resident and obtained my masters degree. I then served as the Chief of Pediatric Dentistry at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in DC. Here I treated many children with special needs, many of which were hospitalized, which began my passion of helping this young population of children. I also was a member of their cleft lip and palate team. I strive to make every child feel special and comfortable while in our office just as I would my own daughters: Ava 16 and Ella 14
