Child Well Visit

It is important to keep your child’s health and growth on track. Children need a well child visit, even when they are not sick. These visits can help uncover possible problems before they become serious.

Well care visits are a chance to focus on your child’s wellness and growth.

What to expect at a Well Care Visit:

  • Talk about ways to keep your child healthy.
  • Measure your child’s growth and development.
  • Get information on screenings. These include vision and hearing.
  • Education on childhood illnesses and immunizations.
  • 1 or more blood lead screenings are needed for children by their 2nd birthday.

It is advised that children see a dentist for the first time at 1 year of age, then every 6 months after that.

  • Birth
  • 3 to 5 days
  • 1 month
