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.
