Opencare’s Mission:

To reinvent how dentists run their practices, so they can focus on what matters most: providing exceptional patient care.

Running a dental practice is becoming more and more complicated every year. At Opencare, we believe that dentists shouldn't have to worry about managing their practice, which frees them up to prioritize world class patient care experiences. After all, we live our most important life moments, from laughing and smiling to eating and talking, through our mouths.  

Yet for such an important part of our body, the thought of visiting the dentist instills fear and confusion in most people. We want to change that.    Through the Opencare marketplace, we are enabling dentists to connect with new patients, streamline their day-to-day operations, and manage their billing seamlessly. All of this frees up time and energy that can be dedicated to helping patients understand and improve their oral wellness.  We believe that people reach their full potential at work when they are happy and healthy outside of work.

Our Engineering team uses the most modern technology and processes available: we deploy to production multiple times per day with our continuous delivery pipeline, we have efficient code review processes on Github, and we are extremely agile with our product planning lifecycle.
