Abstract

This study examined individual and contextual factors that impact the attainment of objectives set by the Ministry of Health for Special Needs Patients Dentistry (OPNE) in Brazilian Centers for Dental Specialties (CEO). Secondary data from DATASUS and the CEO Access and Quality Improvement Program (PMAQ-CEO) were utilized, encompassing 1013 facilities. Statistical analysis employed Poisson regression and multilevel analysis, with a 95% confidence interval (CI). The findings revealed that CEOs, on average, achieved goals for basic OPNE procedures for six months each year. The Municipal Human Development Index (IDHM) and CEO type exerted an influence on goal attainment, with CEO types II and III displaying a greater likelihood of achieving the goals. The Southeast and South regions exhibited lower chances of achieving the objectives. The scarcity of specialized professionals remains a challenge in the treatment of patients with special needs. In conclusion, in Brazil, CEO type and IDHM are associated with improved CEO performance in attaining goals for the OPNE specialty.
