Open Dental is a very well liked software by all of our employees. It is easy to use, especially when having to train.


easy to use, very straight to the point, icons show you exactly what you are looking for, everything you need is at the click of a button


The only issue I have with this software, is that if you have multiple offices you have to look up a patient by each office. There is not 1 search place that will search a patient at all locations.
