  • Text messages are not secure and should not be used to send PHI. See Encryption of Data in Transit.
  • Sending text messages too quickly (e.g. more than one every second) may cause Open Dental to exceed the monthly texting limit before a popup can appear. Open Dental is not responsible for any fees an office or clinic may accrue in this manner.
