14 Years Old

Welcome to the teen years!
It’s official, you have a teenager in the house. They think they don’t need you, but you know differently. They also need regular medical, dental and vision checkups. Through Crow Wing County’s Child and Teen Checkups program, these appointments are free to anyone on Medical Assistance or MinnesotaCare. Checkups for 14-year-olds include:

Health education and guidance 
  (height and weight/blood pressure/body mass index)
Health history (nutrition/chemical use/mental health)
Relationship, thought and feeling development 
Social and emotional development
Physical exam 
Hearing check 
Hemoglobin/hematocrit (once between 12 – 20)
Vision exam using eye chart
Dental referral for regular preventive checkups
