Identified health concerns and changes in management resulting from the Healthy Kids Check in two Queensland practices REPLY

Research output: Contribution to journalLetterResearch

Abstract

In reply: We thank Alexander and colleagues for their interest in our article. They query the low rate of detection of oral health problems and overweight and obesity. We are surprised that they question our failure to detect oral health problems, given that their analysis found this screening to be ineffective.1 Perhaps the general practitioners in our study did not embark on ineffective screening.
