Practice Visuals is still in development stages. For this reason, we are providing the software at a discounted price in return for the early adopters helping us fix the bugs and roll out new features.

Practice Visuals is fully functional and stable and WILL NOT damage your OpenDental database in anyway. Since all the data remains on your computer, it is 100% HIPAA and privacy compliant.

You will have a free trial period to test the software.


Requirements

Recommended Setup:

  • Windows 10 (32 bit or 64 bit) – minimum version 1903.
  • Microsoft Account.
  • With this setup, you can directly download Practice Visuals from the Microsoft Store link below for the free trial period and/or purchase for unlimited access.

Other Setups:

  • Windows Server 2016.
  • If you wish to install Practice Visuals on this system, please contact us for setup instructions.

We recommend installing the device on an office work station that has OpenDental installed and remains on all the time. You will want to use the same computer as your remote desktop computer.

Using the server for your remote desktop needs is discouraged.


Connection Settings

Practice Visuals connects directly to your OpenDental database – it does NOT download or mine your data in anyway – all the calculations and algorithms are performed on your computer running the software. Please follow the following guide to connect per default OpenDental database settings:

Running on Office Workstation

Server = [your server’s IP address or name]

Port = <blank>

User ID = root

Password = <blank>

Database = opendental

Running on Home Computer

You will need to have forwarded your port in your office’s router to allow remote connections from TCP/UDP to port 3306 and redirect it to your server computer’s IP address. If you’re doing this, please make sure to change your database password and assign a <random port> to avoid attacks on your database.

Server = [your server’s IP address]

Port = <blank> / unless changed on your router’s port forwarding settings.

User ID = root

Password = <strongly recommend a good password>

Database = opendental

Running on Office Server

Server = localhost

Port = <blank>

User ID = root

Password = <blank>

Database = opendental


Connecting to “LocalHost”

If you are planning to install Practice Visuals on your server, please download the following script and run it on your server to allow Practice Visuals to connect to your local OpenDental database.
