Conversion: Split Database

A database split may be necessary when one or more providers are leaving a practice and want to take data belonging to their patients with them. It can be performed by provider or by clinic. Practices also split a database to create a database template that has no patients, but copies all settings (e.g. when opening a new location). See Conversions.

Fees:  Each database split is $400.  For instance, one database split into two databases for two different providers would be 2 x $400 = $800.  Or, simply removing certain providers from one database will result in only one database, thus the charge would be $400 (e.g. providers are no longer relevant to practice).

Handling OpenDentImages folder (scanned documents) for a database split:

Option 1: Copy the entire OpenDentImages folder from the original location to the new location for patient scans to be accessed.

Option 2: For a fee of $400 per split database we can split out the scanned documents for only the patients in your database split.

Note: We do not touch an office's digital imaging software (x-rays). Contact your digital imaging software for options regarding x-rays.
