The Importance of Being Proactive With Your Health
At Brown & Gettings, DDS, we continuously stress the importance of being mindful of not only your oral health, but your overall health as well. Dr. Brown was recently reminded of this during an appointment with one of his patients, and he wants to share the story and his thoughts with you. This patient recently celebrated her 18th anniversary of being diagnosed with lung cancer. She is not only a lung cancer survivor, but a breast cancer survivor as well. Dr. Brown felt that her optimism and outlook on life was something to be shared and can be a lesson for us all. Click here to watch the video where Dr. Brown shares this story and how being proactive with your health can truly make a world of difference to your future health.
Better to be Proactive than Reactive
As Dr. Brown explains in the video, we have no idea what tomorrow will bring, so why not make the best of each day? He recommends going on the offensive and not waiting for something negative to happen with your health. This can be done through scheduling routine appointments. Routine appointments can help with early detection of any concerns. Treating any medical or dental issue in the early stages leads to the best and least invasive results.
Ways to be Proactive With Your Health
You are never too old to make the changes needed to live a healthier life. The sooner you make the necessary changes in your life, the longer you can reap the benefits. In the video, Dr. Brown suggests various ways to improve your overall health such as:
- Eat healthy, balanced meals
- Exercise regularly
- Schedule routine doctor appointments
- Visit the dentist for routine hygiene examinations every six months
Dr. Brown encourages everyone to take their life into their own hands. This is your reminder to schedule an appointment that you have been avoiding or postponing. If you have not visited our office located in West Chester OH within the past six months, we hope you call to schedule an appointment today. We look forward to seeing you soon and wish you health and happiness always.
