Image Conversions (Scanned Documents and Patient Pictures)

Converting scanned documents and patient pictures is different than a data Conversion and incurs a separate fee.  Fees vary from $500 to $2000 depending on the complexity of the conversion and quality of images.

Conversion of scanned documents is distinct from imaging software (usually for radiography or X-rays, intraoral imaging etc.). Usually you will retain your current imaging software OR start over with new imaging software OR change and get a conversion done by your new imaging software provider. See http://www.opendental.com/manual/programbridges.html.

Below is a list applications and estimated image conversion fees.  If your application is not listed, we still may be able to convert, so please ask us.  We are constantly looking for new ways to convert scanned documents and patient pictures.
