Parents! Summer is almost officially over. It’s time to change gears to earlier bedtimes, getting out the front door by 8am and focusing on daily homework! We know this time of the year is especially busy so SNAHC has prepared a checklist of things to add to your back to school list!
Beginning this school year, public schools are no longer allowed to enroll a child without proof that all of their vaccinations are up to date. While you’re making an appointment for vaccinations, get a whole health checkup with our doctors and specialists. Call 916-341-0575 now.
✓ Kid’s Health Checkup
Taking your child to see a doctor on a regular basis (not just when they’re sick) is important to keep them on a healthy track. The doctor will make sure your child is up to date on all of their immunizations, allergy screenings and sports physicals, if your child will be participating in sports. Taking your child for regular health checkups teaches them that their health is important to you. Share the love and make an appointment.
✓ Vision and Hearing Checkup
Parents and teachers don’t always know there is a problem with a child’s sight or hearing and sometimes children don’t know there is an issue either, it is their normal. Our newly expanded SNAHC facility in Midtown Sacramento offers vision and hearing services in one place to make it easy for your child get their hearing and vision tested before the new school year. Make this part of their regular checkup.
✓ Dental Checkup
Getting regular dental appointments for your child will keep their teeth healthy and your child out of any pain. Bring your kids in to see the dentist for a checkup at least twice a year. This helps prevent cavities, keeps kids pain free and your child going to their first day of school smiling bright and feeling confident.
