02/22/2024 - We have received a report of Retrace (also known as Retrace Dental and Retrace Labs) claiming to be a fully integrated partner with Open Dental. Retrace is not partnered with Open Dental in any way. This service writes back unauthorized data directly to the Open Dental database which is dangerous. Open Dental is advising practices not to use Retrace.
