Directions to Our Office


Folan Family Dental is committed to providing the best dental care to our patients.  In addition to our excellent clinical skills and friendly, approachable style, we believe education is another area where we can assist, so individual patients and families can achieve optimal oral health.

At Folan Family Dental we offer Presentations once or twice a month  (more as needed).   These educational sessions are open to the public and free of charge.  The Presentations are held in our office and are approximately 15 minutes long, with a question and answer session following the seminar (for those who may want more specific information).

Although there is no charge for our Presentations, we do require reservations. Please make note of the sign-up deadlines listed with the scheduled seminar information below. Reservations can be made via e-mail, phone or stopping by our office.

We are open to considering other topics that our patients might be interested in.  Please relay your suggestions to us at

Some of the up-coming topics include:

  • Pregnancy and Oral Health
  • Your Infant and Oral Health
  • Taking Care of Your Teeth and Gums for Adults
  • Periodontal Disease
  • Dental Fear and Anxiety

First experiences like going to the dentist can be frightening for young children. Events can be scary when they don’t know what to expect. We think going to the dentist should be a positive experience, so children will look forward to their appointments.   At this workshop, we discuss how to intoduce your child to the concept of going to the dentist as well as enjoyable activities and suggestions that will help prepare them for their first visit.
