Dr. Clara Tzau
Pediatric Dentistry Specialist
“I love it when the children get their front teeth fixed and they run to the mirror to take a peek and they give that big smile of approval. I worked extremely hard for my specialty to be board certified in two countries (both American and Canadian boards) and I hope patients can appreciate that extra mile given we take to ensure we are recognized as experts in the field of pediatric dentistry.”
Clara Tzau was born and raised in Toronto, Canada and graduated from the University of Toronto with a BSc, specializing in Toxicology. During her years of undergraduate university, she spent time volunteering at one of Canada’s most prestigious children’s hospital in Toronto, Sick Kids Hospital. To date, it is her most rewarding and memorable volunteer experience yet, sparking her true passion for providing care for children. Clara received her D.D.S. degree from New York University where she continued her outreach experiences at First Start and Ronald McDonald Charity House. She completed both her general practice residency and specialty pediatric dentistry training at NYU Lutheran Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York. Clara has experience in teaching children piano and has applied these skills towards her pediatric dental career. Clara has two older siblings whom she remains tightly connected to, despite her family residing in Toronto. Whenever back in Toronto, she enjoys not only spending time with her family, nieces, and nephew, but also with her favorite pet parrot. Being born a Canadian has not made Clara excel in hockey, but she sure is a hockey fan when it comes to NHL season.
