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!

"I am very anxious about visiting the dentist, because I have very sensitive teeth with a lot of fillings. The hygienist was very respectful and took her time to make sure that she didn't cause me pain. This was the FIRST time I have not had pain during a cleaning or examination. Dr. Folan then explained the pros and cons of treatment, but ultimately left the decision up to me. I did not feel pressured, rushed, or spoken down to. This is an excellent dental practice."

-Alyssa K of Dorchester

-Lena A of Rockland

"Exceptional! I’m terrified of sitting in the dentist’s chair, thanks to hypersensitivity & a marginal Type A personality...but Folan Family Dental made the whole experience as positive as it could have been! The hygienist was phenomenal in her patience and exceptional in her understanding of my anxiety. And Dr. Folan was kind, intellectual and actually took some time to just chat. Could not ask for a better experience in the dreaded dentist’s chair! Thank you, Folan Family Dental!"

-Marie R of Dorchester

"I had an awesome experience getting a root extracted at the Folan Family Dentist. Dr. Folan is so good in his profession, very gentle and does a great job every time I have a visit.

"I wanted to take a moment and let you know how impressed I was today with Nicole on your staff. My mother, Elizabeth, had some questions and concerns about her recent insurance changes and couldn't fully understand the different methods of coverage, networks etc. I then spoke to Nicole and she did a terrific job of explaining my mother's insurance coverage. Nicole was extremely knowledgeable, helpful and courteous. She explained the insurance inside and out. Please pass along our thanks to Nicole for an outstanding client service experience!"

"My first appointment at Folan Family Dental was very positive. My dentist was very professional and pleasant. His explanations regarding "next steps" were easily understood and quite thorough. My hygienist was also very professional and provided me with excellent care. I look forward to returning to this office in the future. I will recommend this office to family and friends."

-Pam D of Dorchester

"I miss living in Dorchester SOLELY for the proximity to Folan Family Dental. Not only is the staff incredibly competent but they are warm and welcoming. I actually looked forward to the dentist when Dr. Folan (and friends) was my provider."

-Rita W of West Roxbury

"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!"

"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!"
