The Dentally Software Bridge allows you to connect your existing, third-party software integrations to your new PMS with one click.

Dentally can integrate with numerous types of imaging, radiography, probing, and stock management software. The Dentally software bridge allows you to seamlessly open a patient's file in your software with the click of a button from within Dentally.

Installing the Dentally Software Bridge

In order for Dentally to communicate with your existing, third-party software a small bridge program is required, which can be installed by following these simple steps:

1. Install the Dentally Software Bridge Chrome extension. This can be found here.

2. Download the Bridge Application for Mac OSX here. Unzip and copy the DentallyImaging folder into your applications folder.

3. Right-click on the DentallyImaging executable and click 'Open'. Click 'Open' in the window that then pops up - the file will then install.

4. Setting up configurations: after the file is installed, ensure that you have all the required information selected for the profiles you need to support as you will now need to configure the Google Chrome Imaging bridge Extension

Default options

Some of the fields may contain a default button that will fill in the field with the standard configuration for your imaging software. Setups vary, so the defaults may not always be suitable for you. It may at least give you a hint as to the format or approximate location which needs to be entered.

ID Field

The ID you would like the link to use. If the imaging software has been previously linked to another practice management system, we recommend using legacy ID to avoid creating duplicate patients.

Multiple Imaging Bridges

You are able to setup multiple bridges with Dentally. To set up a second bridge, open the options pop-up as before where you should see your existing bridges. To create a new bridge click Add New Bridge and repeat the process as outlined above. When multiple bridges are installed, clicking on the tooth icon in the address bar will reveal multiple icons, one for each of the installed bridges. Simply select the icon of the program you wish to open.
