About Open Dental

Open Dental is a HIPAA compliant open-source dental practice management software that provides on-premise electronic charting, billing, practice management, and imaging applications that's suitable for any large and small dental practice. Open Dental practice management solution includes patient care charts, prescribing capabilities, treatment planning, appointment scheduling with automated appointment reminders, an integrated graphical tooth chart, SMS and email texting, credit card processing, and custom reporting. With Open Dental prescribing capabilities, dental professionals can provide patients with electronic prescriptions and printed prescriptions, which can be filled in using predefined templates. Prescriptions are automatically logged and can be reviewed using a specially created report. The treatment plan module provides patients with a custom treatment plan and collects all required treatments for an individual patient. Users can send, add, and modify preauthorization treatment forms from this module and can modify fees for individual procedures. With the Open Dental's chart module, any dental hygienist or dental examiners can provide patients with a graphical tooth chart on-the-spot without the need for secondary software. The solution provides a patient portal to make payments, view appointment confirmations, view treatment plans, send or receive webmail, and download summaries of care. The appointment calendar can be viewed in daily or weekly mode and allows any dental assistant to view upcoming patient appointments. Open Dental is compatible with Windows, Linux, and Mac operating systems.

Would Never Recommend Anything Else!

Love it, love it, love it!

Pros

Honestly, can’t say enough! Ease of use, accessibility to all features, ledger is simple/easy to understand, payment allocation is perfect, customization is amazing. Not one thing I DONT LIKE ABOUT!!

Cons

I honestly can’t think of one single thing I don’t like about it. Especially since I’m at an office that uses Dentrix.

DO IT

Overall, this is an easy decision. I highly recommend Open Dental. I have used others, and Open Dental is by far the best out there. It is the cheapest, easiest, and most simple out there. There are many features that makes it amazing. SWITCH today.

Pros

The most easy answer all day. GET OPEN DENTAL. It is the best and easiest dental software that you will ever use! Seriously, listen to me. GET OPEN DENTAL. I have used Dentrix, Eaglesoft, and others and Open Dental is by far the easiest to use. The support is AMAZING. you never hear about this with any company, but this company is great at answering questions.

Cons

There is not ONE thing that I do not like about Open Dental. They are a great company and a great software.

Response from Open Dental Software

Thank you for your kind words, Doctor! We are happy your experience has been stellar, that's always our goal. We look forward to continuing to serve you as your practice grows :)

VERY user friendly. Great software.

Great.

Pros

We transitioned to this software after our practice was sold to a new dentist. I was very scared about changing software but after about two weeks (without any training) we were using it like we had been using it for years. It is so user friendly. I was very happy with patient check in, check out, adding insurances, and making treatment plans. I would definitely recommend this software. I know that is integrated quite easily with our existing digital xray system though I was not involved in getting that set up. I just know the transition was very smooth.

Cons

I can't think of any problems other than our particular doctor did not provide training. I am not sure if Open Dental providers training. Maybe Youtube video tutorials at the minimum. But again it is so user friendly, it did not take long to figure out.

Response from Open Dental Software

Thank you for the kind words, Susan - we're so glad you were able to make the switch easily and have learned things so quickly! We have loads of training videos on our YouTube Channel if you would like to enhance your learning, and our support team is always just a call or chat away if you have any questions :)
