What Open Dental Does Well

“Open Dental is very user-friendly but also incredibly powerful. They are responsive to requests for updates and changes that are beneficial to dentists. They keep the price affordable and are incredibly helpful with support. It’s weird to love a PMS, but I really wouldn’t want to have to use any other system.” – Amber Owens Robertson
