The 3 Health Professionals You Shouldn't Avoid Seeing

4:29 AM

Let’s face it, no one likes going to see their doctor. If we ever have problems, we try and ride them out without taking a trip to see our GP. Unfortunately, we carry this trait with us and apply it to our health in general. Many of us choose to avoid seeing various health professionals, which will land us in problematic situations in the future.

Bearing that in mind, here are the main health professionals you shouldn’t avoid seeing.

Dentist
Dentists will say that your mouth is the gateway to the rest of your body. Keep it in bad shape, and the rest of your physical being will follow suit. As such, seeing a dentist is essential if you want to take care of your oral health. Regular visits and checkups will help you notice any problems, and sort them out before they become devastating and require expensive oral surgery. Normal checkups take about five minutes, and they’re cheap too. What’s more, dentists can refer you to hygienists who will scale and polish your teeth, getting rid of stubborn plaque and making them more visually attractive too. They’ll teach you various oral health tips as well, ensuring you learn how to look after your mouth at home. Finally, the biggest reason to see a dentist is because they also check for cancer when giving you a neck and jaw examination.

Audiologist
If you’ve never heard of an audiologist, then you’re not off to a great start here! The clue is in their name; AUDIOlogists deal with hearing problems. This could include a lack of hearing, hearing damage, and anything in between. You shouldn’t avoid seeing them as they can help keep track of your hearing and spot small problems before they become massive and leave you deaf. Regular hearing tests are inexpensive, and may even be covered by your insurance policy, so there’s no real excuse. An audiologist can also give you advice and help you learn more about things like hearing aids, and so on. Keeping yourself informed about all areas of your physical health is important, so they’re well worth seeing, and not avoiding!

Optometrist
Optometrists are there to look out for all elements of your visual health. This includes giving you eye tests to check your vision, as well as inspecting the health of your eyes too. Again, tests and appointments aren’t stressful and don’t take up a lot of your time. What’s more, you only need like one or two tests a year, so it’s easy to fit into your schedule. Optometrists are also able to diagnose different diseases such as various forms of cancer via regular checkups.

Be honest, how many of you see all three of these health professionals regularly? Most likely, you’ll see one or two, but hardly any of you will actually see all three. Let’s change this and start taking better care of ourselves from now on! Also, take your children to these health professionals, particularly the first two, so you can keep them in good health as well.
