Preventative Health and You

Thursday, Mar 27, 2014
Most people know to visit the dentist every 6 months, but did you know there are recommended health screenings you have based on your age and gender? These screenings are recommended to prevent or detect early enough to treat potential health problems before they develop or worsen.

Base on your age and gender, we’ve created a list of recommended screenings to aid you in living a longer and healthier life.

Disclaimer: If you are at higher risk for any medical condition due to family history or other personal factors, please consult with your physician on a regular basis. The above are all only recommendations for most patients. Your doctor can work with you to personalize a screening schedule based on your history.
