Socioeconomic Profile and Patient Satisfaction Assessment
Socioeconomic Profile and Patient Satisfaction Assessment in an Academic Dental General Clinic

The aim of the study was to evaluate the socioeconomic patient's profile and their level of satisfaction in the general dental practice clinic. A cross-sectional quantitative study was accomplished with 80 patients assisted at the referred service. A solely-applied questionnaire was used regarding the following aspects: structure and environment, fear and anxiety, reliability, empathy and commitment, resolutivity and quality of the accomplished services. It was observed that the assisted patients' profile consisted predominantly of a female sample (71,2%), that completed the medium learning (31,2%) and/or that didn't finish the fundamental level (26,2%). Moreover 50% of them presented a family income of 1 to 2 minimum salaries and 41,2% were unemployed. As the quality of the rendered technical service, nearly 70% of the users considered it great, as well as the clinic's structure and environment. Regarding the satisfaction with to the received treatment, 76,2% of the interviewees gave the maximum score of 10 and 95% would recommend the attendance to others. It is concluded that the patients are satisfied with the clinical attendance accomplished by the students in the general practice dental clinic at UNIFOR, in what refers to its technical and functional quality.
