In brief: Fordyce granules?
Like the previous doctor said, it could be a yeast infection known as candidiasis.
Do the bumps wipe off? If not, it is not candidiasis. I suspect you are seeing fordyce granules which are benign sebaceous glands inside your mouth. Not everyone has them. No treatment is necessary. I would still highly recommend you have a dentist look at it.

In brief: See a dentist
The white dots could be anything from candida/thrush (yeast) to malignancy.
See a dentist soon and be evaluated.
