Apteryx is a digital imaging program. Website: http://www.apteryx.com/digital-dentistry.
This bridge is also used for:
|Sigma Image XRV
|Dr. Suni/Prof Suni
To enable the bridge:
If using two imaging databases with Apteryx, set up two bridges.
To enable a second bridge:
Apteryx uses the patient number to identify selected patients. Open Dental will send the selected patients birthdate, chart number (if selected), gender, name, patient number, and SSN to Apteryx. If the patient does not exist, a new patient record is created.
XV Sync: A tool used for enterprises to keep their clinic databases (image folders) synced. http://www.apteryx.com/xv-sync
Name Grabber: A tool created by Apteryx for practice management software that does not provide built-in bridges. We do not recommend Name Grabber with Open Dental because the tool will attempt to grab the patient name from the title bar of Open Dental instead of Open Dental sending the patient information to Apteryx. If the tool is used beware the patient number between the two softwares will not match and will eventually need to be corrected. Also, there may be issues with the tool selecting the correct patient if the patient name is misspelled, changes or there are duplicate names.
