Electronic Attachments

Except for DentalXChange (see below), attachments to Claims and Preauthorization must happen outside of Open Dental. Contact your clearinghouse for their preferred attachment method. Below are some known solutions.


DentalXChange (ClaimConnect) has their own attachment service directly integrated into Open Dental. See DentalXChange Attachment for instructions on adding attachments.


FastAttach (Also known as NEA FastAttach) was acquired by Vyne Dental and is an option for electronic attachments. For FastAttach registration and download see: https://vynedental.com/fastattach/.

Note: The DentalXChange and NEA/Manual claim tabs cannot be used together. If using FastAttach the Allow sending attachments Clearinghouse Setup must be unchecked.
