Program Bridges

For more third party options, see Vendors - Supplemental Services and Products.

Within Open Dental you can link to external programs that you use within your practice. We call these links "bridges", and all you need to do is set up a Program Link. You can even add a clickable button or menu option that launches the program. Below is a list of program bridges included with Open Dental, with links to detailed setup information.

Imaging Software
Open Dental works well with imaging programs you purchase from your hardware vendor or with independent software. The best way to link a digital imaging program to Open Dental is with a bridge. The digital images will not be visible in the patient's Chart or Images module automatically, but you can choose to import them. We do not recommend any particular brand of sensor or software.

For a list of companies that manufacture hardware and software, see Imaging Hardware and Software.

Bridge Requests
We pursue all requests for basic imaging bridges. There may be a handful of imaging software companies that have not responded to our contact attempts for bridging details. These requests are put on hold until we hear from the imaging software company. If you want to use a software that we do not bridge to, please let us know.
