Open Dental Software Review (In conjunction with ECW)

What do you like best?

Open Dental is easy to use and has a great odontogram - you can move the teeth, draw cysts/ supernumeraries, and there is a clear "tx plan, other existing, completed, and referred" designation for all treatment.

What do you dislike?

There is no obvious ledger, so when you want to find when something is completed, you do have to scroll through all the notes and manually find when a procedure is completed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely a good one to consider in a fast pace environment, minus the lack of a sufficient ledger

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Open Dental is very easy to work with and so, in a fast paced environment, is great for efficiency (especially in terms of quickly looking at the odontogram to see what treatment is remaining).

Open Dental does everything my pediatric dental practice requires.

What do you like best?

Open Dental is very customizable while keeping its learning curve very friendly.

What do you dislike?

I have no complaints about this software. I am glad I chose it and have no regrets. I would recommend Open Dental to any dentist.

Recommendations to others considering the product

do it and don't look back.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Open Dental is solving every dental practice business problem that we have as far as management software is concerned. Benefits compared to Dentrix: I'm not tied to a dental supply company. No stupid popups. No right-clicking. Everything in one window.

What Dental Practice Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

Open dental

What do you like best?

I like the fluidity of the software. I've used Eaglesoft in the past and open dental has a much easier learning curve. Although, I wish the more advance features of the software were more transparent to the intermediate user. I like the charting system and the program overall is very easy to use.

What do you dislike?

It happens from time to time that xrays get taken in the wrong patients file. I dislike that it is not easier to transfer xrays from one patients file to another. Eaglesoft has this feature. Even the copy and paste function only works if each individual xray image is reopened. It is very tedius.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are having problems with compatibility on windows 10. The intraoral camera no longer works and the reveal features in the xrays stopped working as well. We are trying to downgrade back to a previous operating system, but it would be nice if Open Dental would update their software to be compatible.

Great product all around

What do you like best?

It's very intuitive with the color coding, very straight forward to use this software. This software is available in both Windows and Mac versions.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the color coding could be enhanced. It sometimes feel old school. Sometimes the application crashes, would have to restart it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using it for Billing, reminders, confirmations, downloading existing prescriptions etc. We have found that it's a one stop shop for all the dental needs.

Best Dental Software I've used

What do you like best?

Ease of use, I have enjoyed the customization of this tool. The tech support has been better then I have experienced. My favorite aspect is that open dental is open source which makes it very flexible and robust in it's capacity.

What do you dislike?

The accounts were sometimes confusing to read, BUT the customer service was amazing to help us figure it all out!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This program can be programmed to complete very complicated and specific functions. The open source concept gets program features results in a weeks or days not years or never, like other proprietary DPMS. When you contact customer service you speak with helpful and happy humans who understand your issues and work hard for complete solutions.
