dot Net ( .NET )

Open Dental Installation requires Microsoft .NET. If Windows is updated regularly, workstations should already have the required files installed. Newer versions of Windows come with .NET installed.

In Open Dental Version 20.2 and greater, two versions of Microsoft .NET are required. The minimum version requirements are as follows:

.NET 4.7.2 (link to Microsoft website).

.NET 3.5 (.exe)

Repair Tool: Sometimes the installation must be repaired. See to download the Microsoft .NET Framework Repair Tool.
