Dr. Francis Dolan, DMD
“I decided to become an ALTA SMILES certified provider because I love the technology that they have developed. They make it easy for the dentist to collaborate with orthodontists to provide patients a ‘higher level of orthodontics.’ At the same time, my patients achieve great results, and I love how my patients tell me they are smiling more after treatment.”– Dr. Dolan
Education & Training
Dr. Dolan attended Penn State University to obtain his Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. He received his Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree from Temple University’s Kornberg School of Dentistry. In addition, Dr. Dolan obtained a Fellowship from the American Academy of Implant Prosthodontics.
Dr. Dolan became interested in dentistry after shadowing his then high school basketball coach, who was a dentist in his local community. He was always interested in medicine, but dentistry was particularly appealing since it’s a very hands-on and active profession.
Approach to Patient Care
Dr. Dolan is passionate about using the most advanced technology and offering treatment options to ensure his patients’ overall dental and oral health in a comfortable setting. “I love the challenge of having patients come in who have had a bad experience or have a negative perception about the dentist and comfortably providing them with care in a way that ultimately changes their perspective.” Dr. Dolan’s approach is aligned with the mission of ALTA SMILES to provide the highest quality care in a convenient and affordable manner.
Dr. Dolan and his team of skilled professionals are known to create a welcoming and caring environment and help patients achieve their best smiles yet. A lifelong learner, Dr. Dolan stays up to date with the latest technologies and techniques that lead to better and more efficient results.
