How Your Dentist Can Know Your Most Intimate Health Info

The My Health system's meant to make it easier for us to keep track of our medical records through life - but there are concerns it's a little TOO visible.

Because of the decision to make the electronic system 'opt in', it means all health professionals have access to your entire medical file.

It allows dieticians for example to see whether you've had an abortion, or suffer from a mental illness.

Dentists, and other allied health professionals have the same level of access as your GP.

News Corp reports state and federal health ministers voted a fortnight ago to give every Aussie a My Health account - unless they specifically say no.
