updated answer :
Softdent software (non-cloud) cannot be installed on Mac OS ( though it is possible to run it on a Mac machine running windows OS via Parallels/Bootcamp )

Softdent cloud can run on a Mac OS
MAC Workstation (non-acquisition)
Mac OS X 10.8
Mac OS X 10.7, 32-bit and 64-bit
Mac OS X 10.6 32-bit and 64-bit

Non-acquisition means that work station can’t be used to take digital X-rays to the cloud

taking xrays or using the acquisition feature in dental imaging software is not available on Mac OS , they will be able to view xrays taken by another computers on windows OS 
as acquiring xrays requires a local installation for Dental Imaging Software on acquisition computer and that is not an available option for Mac computers 
i would leave windows computers in the Op rooms and use mac for other rooms accounting or front desk ... who dont need to acquire xrays , they should be able to import images and scan documents though

Please note Ayman's upated answer. SoftDent does not install directly onto Mac OS.

A Windows emulator or Cloud is necessary.
