Sheets are templates that can be customized, then used to gather and send information electronically.

In the Main Menu, click Setup, Sheets.

Sheets can include text, images, information from the database, input fields, checkboxes and radio buttons, signature boxes, and freehand drawing. Open Dental has several internal sheets that can be used for patients, or copied and edited as needed.

Form Design Services

If you have existing forms you would like to convert to sheets, but don't have the time or expertise to set them up, we can help. At this time, we do not have a library of forms to pick from, so you will need to supply the wording. Usually the entire original paper form is enough. The process may involve converting backgrounds to an image. If you can supply a native program file (e.g. a Word document or PDF, not a scanned image), the setup cost may be reduced.

Please contact Open Dental support to get started. For fees, see Fees for Support and Services.

Some sheets can be customized. Highlight an internal sheet and click Copy. Then double click the custom sheet.

Click New to create a new blank custom sheet.

Highlight an existing custom sheet, then click Duplicate to make a copy of it.
