As the name suggests, infant dental exams are meant to be the first dental exam your child gets, usually before they're a year old.

Contact us now to schedule an appointment, and get your child the expert dental care they need in Folsom or Elk Grove.
Kids usually get their first baby tooth when they're 6-12 months old, and typically have all of their baby teeth by the time they're three years old.

First, Dr. Boyes will ask about your child’s dental health history and their overall health history. He will usually ask about your dental health and overall health history, as well. Some dental health issues like thin enamel are genetic, so discussing your own history can help him provide more informed dental care for your infant.
Next, Dr. Boyes will examine your child’s gums, as well as any of their teeth that have erupted. If your child has a lot of their teeth, Dr. Boyes may also gently clean their teeth and gums. You will sit in one of our dentist’s chairs and hold your child on your lap during their infant dental exam.
After he has discussed their oral health history and examined their mouth, Dr. Boyes will provide any care recommendations that he thinks may help your child’s mouth stay healthy. This is also a good time for you to ask any questions you may have about your child’s dental health, and how to keep their smile healthy.
As the last step, you’ll schedule a follow-up appointment with the team at The Spot For Smiles - Folsom. Your child should come and see our team every six months to make sure their smile stays healthy.
