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).

The Rich Get Richer, and We’re Paying For It

Additionally, the top 10 percent of earners in 2017 took home more than half the nation’s ...

I Come from the Land Down Under

I know this is a family column, so I’m going to put this in as delicate terms as possible.

It’s that place I used to refer to my daughter as her hoo-hoo. But it certainly wasn’t a happy ...
