Trophy Bridge

In the Main Menu, click Setup, Program Links. Double-click Trophy.

After version 5.0, this is known as Kodak Dental Imaging (KDI). Also use this bridge for some Carestream products.

There are two different Trophy bridges available:

Note: To change patients, you must close Kodak, switch patients in Open Dental, then reopen the bridge.


To enable the bridge:

  1. Check the Enabled box.
  2. Verify the Path of file to open.
  3. Double click on a row in Additional Properties to change settings.
    1. Storage Path: Where images are stored.
    2. Enter 1 to enable Numbered Mode
  4. Set up a clickable bridge button.
    1. Under Add a button to these toolbars, highlight where to display the button.
    2. Enter the Text on button.
    3. (Optional) Import an image to show on the button (22 x 22 pixels).
  5. If using clinics, click Hide Button for Clinics. Select which clinics the button should display on.
  6. Click OK.

Technical Details

Storage Path: The storage path might look similar to

\\SERVER\tw

or

F:\tw


The storage path must be set to exactly the same value as the database location within Trophy. To change the database location in Trophy, in the main menu click options or preferences and that will open a window with a series of tabs. Inside one of the tabs there will be a place to enter a location for the database. Trophy uses this database path when searching for patients.

Simple Bridge
If using the simple bridge, Open Dental always simply uses the Open Dental PatNum to name the Trophy folders. For example, for John Smith, PatNum=123, his images might be found in this folder:

\\SERVER\tw\123


Troubleshooting

If the bridge isn't working, you can troubleshoot it by creating a windows shortcut. On your desktop, in a blank area, right click, New, Shortcut. The location / target will be the Trophy program itself. For example, C:\Program Files\Trophy\TW.exe. After creating the shortcut, right click on it and select properties. Edit the target. Add a space after the original target and then -P, then no space, then the full path to a patient folder without any trailing \. Similar to this:

C:\Program Files\Trophy\TW.exe -PF:\tw\G.rvg\G0000001


Click OK to close the properties window. Then, click your shortcut to test. This simulates exactly what Open Dental is doing. If you can't get this to work, then Open Dental won't work either. If you can't get it to work, please contact support for troubleshooting.

But if it does work, you should be able to change the settings in Open Dental to match.
