Technical Details

CamSight uses the patient number to identify selected patients. Open Dental will send the patients birthdate, chart number (if selected), name, patient number, and SSN to CamSight. If the patient does not exist, a new patient record is created.

If you already have existing patients in CamSight make sure the numbers match Open Dental prior to using the bridge. To change the patient numbers to match both softwares, either use chart numbers and edit the chart number in Open Dental to match CamSight or edit the patient ID in CamSight to match Open Dental.
