CareCredit is now integrated with Open Dental version 20.3 and above.

CareCredit's integration into Open Dental helps your practice save time, increase productivity, and makes it easier for patients to apply for financing and process transactions. Plus, you can easily identify which patients are pre-approved or already have an existing CareCredit credit card, even before they visit your office. This helps give patients a financing option so they can move forward with recommended treatment.
