Keep your teenager on a healthy track
Teenagers go through many changes. What should stay the same are the regular visits with their doctor and dentist. Scheduling regular doctor visits, vaccinations, tests, and routine dental exams can help keep them in good health during their teenage years.
Knowing what services your teen’s health plan covers is important. Making sure they are up to date on their shots can help keep them from getting sick.
We are here to guide you and answer any questions you may have about your teen’s plan so they can get the care they need.
Here are a few things to consider for your teenager:
- Choose a pediatric doctor and dentist. Choosing and keeping a relationship with their doctor and dentist is important for their overall health and development during their early teen years.
- • Schedule regular physical exams. These visits may include talking to their doctor about important topics such as physical, social and emotional development, getting caught up on their shots, reproductive health and healthy relationships, exercise and eating right.
- Schedule dental visits. Regular dental checkups are also good for your teen’s overall health. These visits may include a cleaning, sealants, fluoride and X-rays.
