Spotlight on: health

While there have been many disruptions to our routines over the past 12 months, it's important to keep looking after our health.

Learn the importance of regular health checks

Spotlight on: health

Are you overdue for a health check? Regular health checks can help catch health concerns before they become acute or chronic issues. Make your health a priority this month.

 

Regular dental checks

Regular dental checks are not only good for your oral health (and your breath!), they can also reduce the risk of other serious health concerns.

In general, you should see a dentist at least once a year for a check-up. Don’t forget many private health insurance funds cover the cost of an annual dental check!

Health checks at any age

Our health risks can change throughout our lives. Find out what age-appropriate health checks are available and how often you should have them. 

But if you have any concerns don’t put it off – see your health professional today and don’t be afraid to get a second opinion if needed.
