Gianna Ferranti Takes the Helm of Somers Smiles

Gianna Ferranti, DDS

Gianna Ferranti, DDS, is pleased to announce her acquisition of Somers Smiles located in the Heritage Hills Shopping Center. 

Dr. Ferranti, a Somers resident, brings with her expertise in all areas of general dentistry, including cosmetics, pediatrics, endodontics (root canals), periodontics, prosthodontics, Invisalign and oral surgery. She also offers sedation dentistry for those who are apprehensive about dental visits. 

Ferranti received her bachelor’s degree in biology from Siena College, graduating in 3-1/2 years while playing for their Women’s Division I soccer team. She is a proud graduate of SUNY Stony Brook School of Dental Medicine.

Ferranti completed a residency with the Hospital of Veterans Affairs North Texas, and received her certification in sedation dentistry through Montefiore Medical Center. In addition, she is a preferred Invisalign provider. Dr. Ferranti has been practicing general dentistry for over eight years, five of which were spent in neighboring Brewster. She is a member of the American Dental Association, New York State Dental Association and Ninth District Dental Association.

Somers Smiles has been in existence for decades, but was built in its current location in 2011 and recently upgraded, making it one of the most modern dental practices in the area. Ferranti’s goal is to change the perception of dentistry by providing world class cosmetic and family dental care utilizing the most advanced technologies in a relaxed and comfortable setting. She welcomes patients of all ages (she loves children), is committed to always doing what’s in their best interest, and is especially eager to get the practice more involved in the local community.

On a personal note, Ferranti is a native of Huntington, Long Island, where she was a “cavity kid” growing up, despite her best efforts, spending many hours at her dentist’s office. Those experiences laid the foundation for her career path, as she has wanted to become a dentist ever since the age of 7. Today, Ferranti lives in Somers with her husband Eric and their two children, Cece (4) and Derick (3). She has fallen in love with the town of Somers, the people and the area. When not practicing dentistry, she goes by Gianna Morrissey and can be found playing in the Somers Adult Co-Ed Soccer League, eating her way through the local food scene and running after her children (literally).

Cuomo Shores Up His Left Flank (at Our Expense)

We keep hearing how the Republicans are bought and paid for by the NRA. I recently explained to you the truth about this myth. The reality is the Democrats are the ones who are bought and paid for. Not by the NRA, but the environmentalists.

The Hatch Act and Immigration Updates

This is for information purposes only. So, when you see headlines like the recent “Kellyanne Conway cited for two violations of the Hatch Act,” you will have a working knowledge of what it means. First off, what is the Hatch Act? This has nothing to do with Orrin Hatch, senator from Utah. Simply put, it states one cannot advocate for or against candidates while serving in an official ...

The ‘Feminist’ President ... Ha!

Incredibly, it wasn’t until 1987 that Congress finally acknowledged the part women have played in the great movements of American history, declaring March to be National Women’s History Month.

And each year since, as March rolls around, U.S. presidents have stood at the lectern, extolling the virtues of American women. In President Trump’s statement, released last week, he ...

To Harrison, L'Chaim!

At long last, the smile of spring approaches, as an angry winter recedes into good riddance. Our spirit is ready to be re-charged. Damn the power outages, full speed ahead!

For my wife, Elyse, daughter, Elissa, and me, this otherwise exuberant time of year brings a confusion of mixed emotions. In 2003, on the opening day of spring, March 20, which happens to be my birthday, our 15-year-old son ...

A Half-Baked Column

“I think it’s time we retired this oven,” I said to my husband as I displayed a sheet of blackened sweet potato fries. “Even the dog won’t eat these.”

“Sure he will,” he said, tossing some fries on the floor. The dog immediately sucked them down.

“Not my point,” I said.

We had known that our oven was on its last burners for ...

When It's Not OK to Ask If Everything's OK

There is this thing that I do that annoys the heck out of my family. Well, to be honest, there are a lot of things I do that annoy the heck out of my family, but I am thinking of one thing in particular.

I'm All Pumped Up

This time last year, I struggled with my New Year’s resolution to go to the gym.

This year, I have made significant progress. I am going to the gym on a semi-regular basis. And by semi-regular, I mean, I go often enough that I actually remember where it’s located between visits.

The bad news, however, is that my workouts are just, how would you say it? Lame. Yes, they’re ...
