What Sets Us Apart

Here at Folan Family Dental, we have created a patient-oriented dental practice that puts you at the forefront of all we do. From ensuring that you are always treated gently and with respect, to offering you only proven, painless dental treatments, using state-of-the-art technology and delivered with genuine smiles, we want you to be happy with the care we provide.

Dr. Michael Folan started our practice in 1981. The strongest testament to the dental care our team provides is that we not only still serve many of our first patients but now treat their children and grandchildren, as well. Working with these patients, over the years, we have developed strong friendships that extend beyond the dental chair. When they come in for a checkup, it’s a chance to reunite with an old friend, catch up on all that is happening with them and their families, and hear of their plans for the future. We thrive on these relationships, and they lead to our office being filled with smiles and laughter.

Our new office, which opened in May of 2013, is not only stocked with top-of-the-line equipment, but is warm and inviting. Every thought has been given to you and your family’s comfort. We believe in kind hospitality and offer cold bottles of water in reception and an “ice cream treat” after all treatments.  We never forget that all of the technological advances in the world cannot trump the need to provide compassionate dental care to each of our patients.

Some patients experience dental anxiety. We know that by clearly explaining dental procedures, engaging our patients in the decision-making process, and providing pain-free treatments, we can help these patients past their anxieties. No one need dread the best care. Should you ever have concerns or questions, please raise them. We cannot rectify any potential issues without knowing what’s going on. We truly do want to set your mind at ease.

Another aspect of our patient-focused approach is our office hours. Understanding that making it to a dental appointment during the work or school day is not always possible, we offer evening appointments and Saturday appointments during the school year. We accept most dental insurance plans, including MA Health and Carecredit, and we have staff members who will help you understand your benefits, in addition to assisting with insurance forms and filings.

Folan Family Dental is located in Adams Village in Dorchester, MA and there is an MBTA bus stop directly in front of our office, making for easy access. We offer complimentary consultations to all new patients and invite you to schedule one, today. This will allow you the chance to see our space, meet our team, and learn about how we can help you reach optimal oral health and a wonderful smile. Dr. Folan and all of us look forward to meeting you!
