Dental Schools Security

Dental Schools security include assigning user groups and permissions, setting default user groups for students and instructors, and setting up usernames and passwords for logging on to Open Dental.

User Groups and Security Permissions

All users should be assigned to a user group which determines the user's security permissions. You will need at least three types of user groups. Carefully consider which permissions each user group should have.

To create a user group, see Adding or Renaming a User Group.

To assign security permissions, see Assigning Security Permissions.

Assign Students and Instructors a User Group

See Default User Groups for Instructors/Students.

User names and passwords

Each student and instructor will need a unique username and password to log on to Open Dental. These can be defined when setting up the Dental School Instructors or Dental School Students.
