  • For a list of supported browsers, see Computer Requirements.
  • The Patient Portal is not yet optimized for mobile devices (e.g. smart phones and tablets) and cannot be used on Windows phones.

You do have the option to host your own patient portal. This is a highly technical process and Open Dental does not provide support on this setup. You must still be on support and have an active registration key. See Patient Portal Setup: Host Your Own.
