Infant oral exams from our smile specialists are an important part of your child’s health.

We recommend that all children go to the dentist within 6 months of the first tooth or by age 1.

At Smiles 4 Keeps, we are fully accredited by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD). You as a parent or guardian can feel confident in our knowledge and experience.

Providing gentle dental care to your infant son or daughter is very important to us.

Important Infant Oral Exam Appointments

  • During your child’s first dental appointment, we are able to perform certain preventive services to keep the teeth healthy. We can also speak with you regarding emergency dentistry situations and how to best care for your child’s oral care during these times.
  • Infant oral exams are incredibly important to promote a solid foundation for healthy teeth and gums. Routine preventive dentistry services, such as teeth cleanings, decrease the chances of oral diseases and tooth decay (commonly referred as dental caries).
  • We will speak with you regarding oral care tips when it comes to teething and your infant’s diet, including breastfeeding and bottle-feeding.

Our kid’s dentists find it important for parents or guardians to help your child understand the importance of dental visits.

We are more than happy to give you tips and suggestions on doing so.

Going to the dentist regularly, starting from a young age, will help your child feel at ease in this environment. Rest assured, we have several amenities to help your son or daughter feel right at home!
