iDentist is created by a company specialized in created medical and healthcare related mobile and desktop apps, Though iDentist is not open source and not totally free but limited the reason for this review is to set a standard and provide a functional multi-platform dental practice app for dentists and dental clinics. iDentist is available for Android and iOS/ Mac OSX. It has many good reviews from satisfying users.
iDentist contains very simple yet power patient medical records management, It allows adding/ editing patients with ease, searching to select a patient and a list of all previous treatments and payments. The user can add planned treatment easy and change the patient details with-in the same view. Patient's records include Allergies, Anamnesis, Condition of the Oral Cavity. It has also blood type, and how the patient reached/ engaged the clinic/ dentist.
Visits management in iDentist makes it easy to add new visit a reminder to any registered patient, It provides also a search tool to search all recorded visits/ reminders, but unfortunately, it does not contain time filter or time-based search. Adding reminder is no different from adding visits but it works as notification for the dentist about incoming visits.
Visits include planned treatment which allows setting treatment plans or selecting pre-defined templates to add to the patient treatment which saves time. It also provides access to the payment view and the patient view. The visit includes support for adding X-Ray (Image) photos per-patient visit.
Agenda/ Calendar view is set at the base or the application under (Home), provides easy access to the dated appointments in hourly-based view, Though there the agenda view is not customizable, however, it's fairly usable. The dentist/ user can switch to the next or previous week. However, the dentist (user) should be able to select the working hours from the settings panel.
Templates are an easy way to pre-define the common and most used procedures, treatment types, and expenses. The dentist can add pre-defined procedures/ expenses and treatment types, assigning expanses/ pricing for each and then they will be available at visits and patients records in the treatment section.
Expenses view giving the dentist (user) overall view to calculate the income, However, Statistics view gives more valid insights about treatments, payments, and expenses
Setting management has few fields including email, address, currency, time of visit, system sounds and working hours. There are no more settings like notification, templates, users or reminders.
Shop section contains in-app purchases that include: extending the number of patients to more than 20 (The free version does not allow more than 20 patients). It's currently one-time payment but it may change in the future.
iDentist is fine dental practice management for dentists and dental clinics, Its cheap provides offline-support and cloud sync (iCloud & Google Drive), It works very well on Mac OSX, It is good for dental clinics that do not require multi-users and multi-installs.
