This is the homepage of the OpenMolar Project. Open Source (GPLv3) Dental Practice Management Software.

The project started when a UK Dentist, Neil Wallace, owner of the Academy Dental Practice in Inverness, Scotland , found himself disastisfied with both the software and service provided by a well-established UK supplier of such a system.
Why use poorly designed, badly supported software when he could write his own?

The project is divided into two distinct branches.

  • OpenMolar1 is the original project, written in python, and qt4, using a mysql backend.
    The application was constructed in haste, and the schema derived from the badly designed schema provided by the forementioned commercial provider.
  • OpenMolar2 is a complete re-write, including a new schema utilising the more standards compliant Postgresql database.
