Why Is This Important?
Access to regular health care services helps support healthy development in adolescence. Adolescents should have a physical checkup once a year and a dental checkup twice a year. Physicals should include immunizations, time alone with a clinician, and information about health-promoting (and damaging) behaviors. Most adolescents receive recommended annual physical checkups and at least one dental checkup a year. However, barriers, such as lack of insurance or trained clinicians prevent some from accessing care.
Percent of high school students who have seen a doctor or nurse for a check-up or physical exam when they were not sick or injured, during the past 12 months.
