  • Dr. Garrett Folks

    Dr Folks graduated from LECOM School of Dental Medicine in Bradenton, FL. Dr Folks strives to help patients in maintaining their oral health through education and treatment of conditions. As a dentist Dr Folks believes that it is an honor to be instilled with the trust of helping people with their dental needs. Dr Folks believes that in dentistry you can earn a persons trust and develop a relationship that can last a lifetime. 


    After recently moving to the area and researching dental offices, I'm glad I chose Magnolia Green at Lakewood Ranch. I was able to easily complete the new patient forms easily on-line prior to my appointment. The office provided sufficient pre-appointment reminders, I was nicely greeted by Melissa when I arrived, Diana my hygienist did an excellent job and Dr. Folks ended the appointment with a thorough check.

    Everyone ay Magnolia Green Dental is very friendly, professional, knowledgable, and caring. They explain everything in a way you can understand as they are working, and give you very clear printouts of charges for services you had as well as any you are considering. Their covid precautions are excellent.

    So very impressive, office staff very friendly and helpful. Dr Folks is the best dentist ever, I have been to quite a few in my lifetime, his care, concern and skill surpass excellence. How many people actually look forward to going to see a dentist and sit in that chair? I am here to say I already have my next appt and actually looking forward to it. Office atmosphere is calming, the professionalism of staff great, seems they all work together as a team, focus on patients wellbeing.

    I relocated recently from out of state and found this office on Google. I wasn’t having issues, just mainly needed a check-up. The receptionist worked to get me in the same day I called due to a cancellation. She called to get my records forwarded. They gave me a new patient discount price of $99 for exam, including x-rays, and a cleaning. It’s not a huge practice. It is in a nice safe area with plenty of parking. It was clean and the staff was welcoming. The hygienist was calm and careful and did a thorough job. The dentist was personable. The staff was not pushy and went over all costs before any procedures. I booked another six month appointment.

    Great first experience at Magnolia with cleaning and general evaluation from Dr.
