Take a Tour of Our Montvale Office
Welcome to Bear Brook Dental Care's Montvale office. We're your local family dentistry practice serving New Jersey patients with cutting-edge dental care in Montvale, Park Ridge, Woodcliff Lakes, and Upper Saddle River, NJ, as well as New York patients in Pearl River, Nanuet, and Chestnut Ridge since 2017.
Our office began as a pediatric dental clinic within the multi-specialty family dental office Bear Brook Dental Care in here Montvale, NJ in 2017. Since then, Dr. Tommy Lee (known as Dr. Tommy to his patients) and his team have helped thousands of children keep their beautiful, healthy smiles and overcome the anxiety associated with dental care through our use of cutting-edge technology employed in a vibrant, child-friendly environment.
From day one, kids have been excited to visit the clinic and see Dr. Tommy. Within just a few years of our opening, countless families have come from Montvale, NJ, and the surrounding areas – sometimes places that are several hours away by car! Knowing how far some of his patients traveled to see him, Dr. Tommy decided to open a new pediatric dental clinic in Hoboken, NJ, so that his patients could easily access the high standard of preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dental treatment that he offers to children.
Both Bear Brook offices provide environments kids love to visit for safe dental care. From our play areas to care rooms, Dr. Tommy and his team have created safe, comfortable spaces for the kids and parents too!

Answers to Your Most Pressing Questions
It’s recommended for a child to see a pediatric dentist when their first tooth appears or no later than their
first birthday. Routine dental care from an early age can help to prevent dental caries (cavities), which
are the most prevalent disease in childhood.
Pediatric dentistry requires two or three additional years of specialty training following dental school.
Unlike typical family dentists, pediatric dentists care specifically for infants through adolescents,
including children with special health needs.
Fluoride treatments are used on children and adults alike to prevent the development of cavities. Since a
child’s teeth are “softer,” they are more prone to losing the essential minerals that help their teeth grow
strong. Fluoride treatments are safe for children and are recommended as soon as the first tooth comes
Digital dental x-rays are used to spot cavities and other dental problems that are not easily apparent to the naked eye. The digital x-rays we take and the machines we use are extremely safe for children and expose your child to minimal radiation.
If a child has a baby tooth that has decayed due to a cavity, they may require a pulpotomy. If a cavity isn’t treated, it can grow close to the pulp of the tooth or even into it. Dr. Tommy will remove the infected area of the tooth, making sure to leave the living tooth root intact. Then, he will place a dental crown to restore the remainder of the baby molar.
