5 Years Old

Your little one isn’t so little anymore!
Five-year-olds bring on a whole new world for both you and your child. Before school and sports start, be sure to schedule your child’s 5-year 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. Your 5-year-old’s checkups will include:

Health education and guidance 
  (height and weight/blood pressure/body mass index)
Health history, including nutrition
Relationship, thought and feeling development 
Social and emotional development
Physical exam 
Hearing check
Blood lead test (if never tested)
Vision exam using eye chart
Dental referral for regular preventive checkups
