A traditional recall system is simply seeing a dentist once every set amount of time, for example every six months. A preventive recall system involves the dentist assessing the risk of oral disease for each individual patient and tailoring the recall interval to the risk, so some low risk patients may attend every year while other high risk patients may attend every four months.
