Integration of Open Dental Database

Post by kiran » Wed Apr 17, 2019 3:57 am

Hi,

I am new to Open Dental(OD) and want to know more about the Integration of OD Database with my own web based service Database. I have done research on it and came across FHIR API integration and need help with the process of integrating FHIR API with my database.

Hi Kiran,

You can test out our API using the API key uTCUIGl4sTWfvKWO with the endpoint https://api.opendental.com. Our documentation explains in more detail: https://www.opendental.com/resources/Op ... -1Spec.pdf. If you think that the API has everything you need for your integration, we can give you your own API key so that you can test in a more realistic setting.

If you have any specific questions about how FHIR works, you can ask me here.

Hi Cmcgehee,

We are using FHIR RESTFUL API to get data from Open Dental. We want to get data from all location of Open Dental.

Can you please confirm that all location of Open Dental have used single central database or used separate database for each location.

It depends from practice to practice. We have some large practices that have dozens or hundreds of different locations in one database. There are also many practices where each physical location has their own database. You can access all these different databases from our API endpoint, but you will have to get an API key for each database.
