"The best experience in dental practice management"

What do you like best?

Open Dental is super easy to install, and setting up integrations is automatic for the most part, with a few exceptions. The tech team there is extremely smart, and not a lot of hold time either. This software is cheaper than most of the others, and it's quality is higher. It's a no brainer. The best part, is it has a single sign-on feature for those on a Windows Domain, which makes logging in super easy.

What do you dislike?

If I had to choose something to dislike, it would be that the UI could look a little bit "slicker". A very minor detail.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The trial is very easy to install, so I suggest trying that out if you have any questions about the software.

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

Open Dental is a practice management software for dental practices. It's helpful in keeping the schedule of patients available, and holding all of the chart data in a secure and compliant manner.

"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.

"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.

the ease of movement throughout the system, their support and if there's something that we need and is not part of the system, their engineers will customize it for us

To this day there is not one thing that we would dislike about the system, we had tried others and this is the one we find easier to use and easier for new employees to follow.

We have the ease to text and email our patients right from our daily schedule, save us time when it comes to communicating with patients and also the reports keep us on track of every aspect in the office

"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.

"A user-friendly and efficient software to use."

What do you like best?

It highlights relevant procedures when you click on a claim. The toolbar makes each feature easy to access. It is the most user-friendly dental software on the market.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the fact that certain aspects of the software are hidden within others, making it difficult for new users to discover this on their own.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be aware of hidden sectors of information.

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

I am able to look up open claims on the fly during business calls and can cross-reference patient info rather quickly.

"I would rather use Eagle Soft"

What do you like best?

Seeing many providers on 1 screen, which is 15 chairs. Other than that, nothing, I hate it every day.

What do you dislike?

The clinical chart is too small. Patients name on the clinical chart is too small. All print is one color. Was not provided with a trainer or formal training plan upon conversion. Too many clicks required with mouse to enter simple data resulting in inefficient use of time

Recommendations to others considering the product

Provide proper training manual

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

Improved access to insurance company and decreased IT expenses

Open Dental is easier to learn than most dental EMR systems. the software is simple, and has excellent charting tools. Its far cheaper than other tools.

We use the software in free dental clinics
