Open Dental will send the patients birthdate (if after year 1880), chart number (if selected), patient number, and SSN to ClioSoft.

The bridge will not work if the patients first name is blank in Open Dental or if the Additional Property Value is set to 1 and the chart number is blank in Open Dental.
