Perceptions and attitudes on interprofessional relations in dental care during prenatal care

Juliana Pereira da Silva Faquim Paulo Frazão About the authors


The study describes perceptions and attitudes of primary healthcare workers on interprofessional relations in dental care during the prenatal period. It is a descriptive observational study using administrative records and semi-structured interviews, which addressed issues of hierarchy, ability to prevent conflicts, and interprofessional collaboration. In conclusion, despite the general perception in favor of interprofessional collaboration, formal and organizational resources are not being employed, reflecting a gap between the potential perceived by the interviews and the practice supported by the instruments used in antenatal care.
