The Secret to a Perfect Smile

Do you wish for a beautiful smile with nice straight teeth? As an adult, you probably don’t want to go through the process of wearing metal wire braces for two years. They are visible and can affect your personal and business life, not to mention your day-to-day activities. But wouldn’t it be great, as an

Do You Really Need Toothpaste?

You might not be so great at brushing your teeth, but you probably don’t know it. And it’s not from a lack of trying. One big problem is the toothpaste itself you might be using. It’s not a particular brand of toothpaste, but any toothpaste now on the market. The real key to effective brushing

Getting Off the Roller Coaster of Dental Fear

Got a horrible fear of going to the dentist? So much so that you avoid going, even though you know you should? Well, you’re not alone. Many people fear—even downright abhor—going to the dentist.

Numb Lip From Your Dental Visit? Not Here!

As an experienced dentist, what I see over and over is what many consider the most dreaded part of the dental visit: getting that “shot of Novocain” to numb the tooth to be worked on. The second most dreaded part can be the numb fat lip that you leave with after the visit. Well, with

What the Heck is Dental Insurance?

You could be asking that same question when you think about the expenses you may face in dental treatment.

Ever try a whitening toothpaste, hoping for the best, but ending up disappointed when you don’t get the results you were expecting? There are lots of options to whiten your teeth these days, from over the counter treatments, to professional treatments at a dental office.

Morning Headaches? Or Beautiful Symphony?

Patients ask me quite often about headaches they experience, because they suspect their constant headaches could have something to do with their teeth and their jaw. Well, they could be right.

I could not be more satisfied!!! Doctor Zanni, Ginny and the rest of the crew are superb! Personable, caring, kind and most importantly...great at what they do.
I grew up in the area but have lived in NYC for the last 40+ years. In April I made a temporary retreat back to M'head due to the Covid crisis. I was in need of some extensive dental care and Dr. Zanni was recommended to me by my brother-in-law (a retired area dentist) as one of the best in the business. I knew after my first visit that I was in the right place. His evaluations were painstakingly detailed and comprehensive and his work has been absolutely fantastic. I'm smiling again. Thank you Jerry....You're the best!!

I started seeing Dr. Zanni when I moved to this community three years ago. He is an excellent dentist, able to diagnose and repair issues quickly, and always takes the time to fully explain procedures and be sure I understand what to expect. His staff is helpful, professional, and friendly. And listening to my favorite sirius station with headphones while I'm in the chair is such a pleasure. I highly recommend him!
