Bridge - MediaDent 

MediaDent is imaging software.  Website: MediaDent. CADI is a rebranded version of MediaDent.  See CADI setup below.

MediaDent Bridge
In the Main Menu, click Setup, Program Links. Double click on MediaDent.  Check the Enabled box. Verify the Path of file to open and the text file paths in Additional Properties.  Click OK. You will now have a button in your Chart module labeled 'MediaDent'.  

Additional Properties: 

  • Text File Path: Only used with version 5.   Patient data will be written to a text file.  You must make sure that the path specified is valid on all computers and that the user has Windows permission to write to that file.  Warning! The default text file path is actually a poor choice because Vista does not normally allow users to write directly to the C drive.  A better choice would be: C:\Mediadent\MediadentInfo.txt  But you would have to make sure to create a C:\Mediadent folder on each workstation and assign full read/write permissions to that folder in Windows. 
    Also, you might have to specify a fully qualified path for the file to open in the text box further up.  Like this:  C:\Program Files\Mediadent\Mediadent.exe, or whatever the usual path is.  The disadvantage of doing this is that the path might be different on 64 bit machines.  So try the simpler path as shown above first.
  • MediaDent Version 4 or 5: Enter either 4 or 5.  In Version 6.6, the bridge was overhauled to include support for MediaDent v5. 
  • Image Folder: Only used with version 4.  After upgrading to version 6.6, the Image Folder may have to be reentered.
