Welcome to Folan Family Dental

At Folan Family Dental, we have been providing our Dorchester friends and neighbors with compassionate, effective dental care, delivered with gentle hands and warm smiles, since 1981. Every patient is treated the way we would wish to be treated: with respect, kindness, and professionalism. Dr. Michael Folan and our dental care team view our patients as individuals and value the friendships that we develop with each. Many of our current patients have been with us since we first opened our practice and we now treat their children and grandchildren, too. We are honored by the trust they have placed in us and that they constantly refer their friends and family to our practice.

Some of the dental treatments and services offered by Folan Family Dental include:

Choosing a family dentist can sometimes be challenging. You need to find a practice where you feel comfortable and know that you are in excellent hands.

We look forward to getting to know you and working with you toward your beautiful new smile!

Good News!

We are happy to announce that Folan Family Dental has re-opened!* We are now located at 540 Gallivan Blvd, Dorchester, just a few steps from our previous office. We couldn’t be happier to remain in the Adam’s Village neighborhood!

We used the same architect and construction company as our previous office and are thrilled with how the new office came out. The current office is slightly larger than our previous practice with five treatment rooms, the latest equipment and technology, a comfortable reception area and for our young patients: a children’s play area.

All the photographs were saved and are now hung up. We have added to our seasonal decorations and believe the office has a “homey” feel to it. FFD now has on-site parking for patients during their appointments. Our practice is located on the second floor, and the building has an elevator.

When you come for an appointment, you will notice many of our staff members have remained with us. We are also excited to have a few wonderful additions to our personnel.

To schedule an appointment, you can call FFD at (617) 265-8393 or send us an e-mail to FolanFamilyDental@gmail.com. Alternatively, patients are welcome to stop by our office, see the practice and book an appointment in person. We look forward to seeing each and every one of you and “catching up”.

*FFD built the new office after a fire in September, 2017 that destroyed our previous practice.
