Health checks prevent oral health problems
For many years the medical profession has known that those with serious health conditions are more susceptible to oral health problems.
Recent scientific breakthroughs have proven that gum disease is a contributory factor in some conditions and that people with poor oral health have an increased risk of Stroke, Type 2 Diabetes or Heart Disease amongst others.
In order to help you reduce your risks we’ll measure your blood pressure, blood sugar levels, body mass index (BMI) and analyse your chances of developing serious health conditions using a nationally recognised risk assessment tool called Q Risk. Then we will let you know if we think you should see your GP. We care about your health and we want you to live longer.
