Folan Family Dental has been in Dorchester for more that 35 years.  We still see many of our original patients and now treat their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

FFD has been built by referrals from our current patients who recommend us to their family, friends, neighbors and co-workers.

At FFD, we want our patients to look forward to their dental appointments and leave happy with the treatment they have received.

If you are not a current part of FFD, please read the testimonials below from our patients.  If our office sounds like the kind of practice where you would like to be part of, kindly call our front desk and we will be happy to schedule an appointment for you!

"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."

-Kathleen H. of Dorchester

-Robyn P. of South Boston 

"My fiancé referred me to Folan Family dental, I must say I really don't mind going to the dentist anymore. Dr. Folan and his staff are amazing and make you feel comfortable. I would highly recommend them for any issues with your teeth or even just the normal cleaning/exam."

-Laura W. of Dorchester

"Love it here! Dr. Folan is wonderful and kind. I actually get excited to go to the dentist!"

-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


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.
