[Health] Dentistry in the GNU health project

Dear all,

In the last week I've been going through the GNU Health project and to my disappointment there is nothing about dentistry in the project. Somehow not really a surprise because as a dentist I often feel we're a bit of a fringe in medicine as well.

Myself I'd better stick to dentistry than start programming, but I looked around and I found a Scottish dentist who has written an Open Source dental application in Python with a PostgreSQL database, just like the GNU health project. It is called Open Molar, and you can find it here:

As I'm a programming noob I can't judge at all if there is any easy way of merging or adding (as a plug-in) this to your existing software. Perhaps even adopt the project as the dentist in question didn't get a lot of users and kinda gave up on the project.
If possible though, it would be a nice addition to your project and perhaps a stimulus to further develop the software and / or to move to a more integrated way that dentistry is represented in the project.

Hopefully this is useful suggestion.
