In my opinion one of the best things about Dentrix G5 is the addition of third party apps that can be added on to the core Dentrix product to add or improve functionality. In the past third party developers had to essentially hack the Dentrix data base in order to extract or add data. This worked…kinda…but was fundamentally unstable.
Dentrix is now providing access to approved programs to work directly with Dentrix through the Dentrix Developer Program. Dozens of vendors have signed up and can be found at the brand new Dentrix Marketplace.
Think of it as an app store for Dentrix. The whole enterprise is still taking shape however I think this is a huge step in the right direction.
