This bridge was originally designed for EasyDent, an imaging product from ewoousa.com. That website is now defunct, and Ewoo was renamed to Vatech. Website: https://vatechamerica.com/software/ezdent-i.
To enable the bridge:
The bridge sends patient data from Open Dental to an XML text file. Example file:
<Patient LastName="Smith" FirstName="John" ChartNumber="123">
<Address>123 Main St, Salem, OR</Address>
The text file is called linkage.xml, and is created in the same folder on the local computer as the EasyDent program is located.
Open Dental then launches EasyDent, which picks up the information in the linkage.xml file.
If no file is present, EasyDent will open with no patient selected.
If the patient is not recognized by EasyDent, a new patient will be created in EasyDent.
If you receive an error while launching, verify patient information is entered accurately (e.g. address, phone notes, etc.).
