"Dentists are scary!! Not at Folan Family! In my experience, other dentists will come in after the hygienists, quickly look at your mouth and leave -- Dr. Folan spends his time doing a thorough check -- this makes me feel so much better! He and the hygienist will teach you how to better care for your teeth or talk about habits that may not be the best (but only if you want to hear it -- no lecturing!!!) if you don't want to hear it, Dr. Folan is happy to fix your teeth!! Dr. Folan is absolutely the best!!! Highly recommend! Plus there's a water cooler in the front, always helps calm me down while waiting (I get anxiety at the dentist)!!"

-Laura S. of Boston


"I have been a patient here forever and recently switched to a place close by because I moved. I am already regretting it after my first filling. The new place doesn't even come close to how good Folan Family Dental is. I don't know why I ever switched. I will definitely be switching back to FFD!"
-Jason P. of Boston

"I have been going here for years. Did your dentist give you flowers for your 70th birthday? Yes, I cried!"
-Dolores H. of Boston

"I've been going to Folan Family Dental for several years now. Dr. Folan and his whole staff are excellent, including the dental hygienists, the other dentists, and the staff at the front desk. They are friendly, capable, and helpful. They will follow through on transferring your records to specialists as needed and they always explain things in language we can all understand. I bring my teenage kids to the practice also and they do great as well. My sister who moved out of Dorchester still drives from Marlboro to see Dr. Folan! I highly recommend this practice."

-Merredith C. of Quincy


"I had tooth problems for two years now. After going to see three other dentists and them suggesting I pull or get root canals at 27 years old, I was horrified. When I came to Folan Family Dental, Dr. Folan set me at ease by saying we would try everything else first and what do you know fillings worked!!! I can finally chew correctly. Thanks so much!"
-Stephanie W. of Brockton
