Dental Team

Dr. Gianna Ferranti, DDS

Dr. Ferranti - Dentist On a personal note, Dr. Ferranti is a native Long Islander who now resides in the wonderful town of Somers with her husband Eric and their four children: Cece, Derick, Frankie and Caleb. Since the age of 7 Dr. Ferranti has known her calling in life was to be a Dentist. She was a "cavity kid" despite her best efforts. She spent many hours at the Dentist, ultimately laying the foundation for her career path. Dr. Ferranti values comprehensive dental care with a strong emphasis on preventative dentistry, so that small problems today don't end up to be major issues tomorrow. She is committed to providing a positive and comfortable experience for all of her patients, even those who are apprehensive about their dental care. She is eager to make Somers Smiles a staple of the community, bringing world-class modern dentistry to residents of the area. Simply put, her goal is to change the perception of Dentistry.

When not in the office, Dr. Ferranti can be found always on the go… attempting to carve time out to play in the Somers adult soccer league, hiking, snowboarding, touring the local food scene, running (after her kids) and spending time with her big Italian family.

Her favorite movie is 'The Goonies,' her favorite dessert is specifically Sweet Delights Lemon Cake and her favorite vacation spot is currently Disney. She would love to travel all over Europe one day (hint hint Eric). Her favorite part of the job is helping people feel good about going to the dentist, and helping people who haven't smiled in a while leave here with one.
