Table 1 Subjectively experienced issues regarding risk classification and identification of at-risk patients in dental prevention at baseline and follow-up (after 3 months), values are given as mean values ± standard deviation; 1 = not at all, 5 = very good/very important. Significant values (p < 0.05) are highlighted in bold
