Baby Dental Exam

It’s recommended babies have their first dental visit by age 1. We make the experience positive and stress-free.

Dental Exams for Tiny Tots

The American Association of Pediatric Dentistry recommends children have their first dental check-up by their first birthday. That’s why, at Oak Tree Pediatric Dentistry in Greenville, we offer baby dental exams to little ones starting at birth. While the thought of bringing a baby to the dentist can be overwhelming for some parents, have no fear. We’re experts in treating kids of all ages, including infants and toddlers. We’ll let your baby set the pace of the exam, and we’ll make sure the experience is a happy one.

Benefits of
Baby Dental Exam

Builds Rapport

A baby dental exam helps your little one build a relationship with the dentist and get used to the sights and sounds of the office.

Keeps Their Smile Healthy

We’re able to ensure your baby’s teeth (or tooth!) and gums are healthy and there are no issues with their oral development.


Our knowledgeable team will teach you how to care for your baby’s smile, as well as answer any questions you may have.

A Tailored, Personalized Visit

At a baby dental exam, your infant or toddler will likely sit on your lap. Dr. Jon Chay or Dr. Martha Hendrix will get down on your child’s level and chat with them using age-appropriate, kid-friendly terms. They’ll show little ones any instruments they’ll be using and talk about what they’re going to do before getting started. Don’t be surprised if things get a bit silly! We do whatever it takes to make sure your child feels safe and comfortable.

When your kiddo is ready, your Greenville kids’ dentist will gently and quickly examine their mouth and count their teeth. They’ll then fill you in on everything you need to know about your child’s oral development, including what to expect and how to keep their smile strong and healthy. The doctor will also answer any questions you have, so you leave feeling informed and confident about your baby’s oral health.
