Abstract: Risk assessment is vital for preventive dental care and validated technologies exist that enable the dental professional to assess a patient’s risk of developing periodontal disease. Information personalized to individual patients can be presented in a simplified format, which patients can understand, enabling them to make informed decisions on, and start taking responsibility for, their oral health.

Clinical relevance: This paper aims to explain the importance, purpose and impact of periodontal risk assessment in contemporary dental practice, where a focus on prevention and personalized biofeedback is an ethical and cost-effective way forward.
