Mobile Synch

Mobile Synch is an older version of the mobile application that lets you connect to your Open Dental data using a mobile device.  View appointments, patient information, and pharmacies. Data is uploaded to Open Dental's server, then must continue to be synched with your database server to ensure content is up-to-date. Data cannot be entered using a mobile synch application.  An active unique registration key is required.

Note:  We recommend updating to Mobile Web instead of using mobile synch. This application uses real-time data and requires no synching.  If hosting multiple databases, each database must have its own unique registration key.

  • Fees:  $15 per month.  Contact us first to enable the service. 
  • Demo:  Try the demo from any mobile device.  In your mobile browswer, type https://m.opndn.com.

For information about how data is protected, see Encryption of Data in Transit.
As of version 14.3, the mobile synch occurs when you launch Open Dental; after the database is selected but before user login.  This means if you are updating Open Dental, the mobile synch will not occur until after the update is complete. 

Other Mobile Solutions

  • Use Remote Access software to remotely connect to an office computer from the mobile device. Some scrolling will be required to see the different parts of the office screen.
