Our dental practice is all about our patients…



I had never worked in a dental office before, but I saw an ad for a practice administrator in the newspaper many years ago that piqued my interest, and I applied. That ad was for Dr. Zanni’s dental practice, of course, and I was hired.

The biggest thing I love about working with Dr. Zanni is our commitment to our patients. Our dental practice is all about our patients—their comfort, the best dental care we can give and working with them as a whole person, not just as a ‘set of teeth.’ And our patients feel that. It’s a relationship-based practice, and I’ve become good friends with a number of them. Many have been in our office for years and years, and they send us their family members and extended family, too.

I love sitting in the reception area, where a patient may stop by and poke his head in the door just to say ‘hi.’ You don’t find that everywhere. Our waiting room was the living room of this house, and it just looks homey. We want our patients to feel the atmosphere of ‘home,’ and I think they do. As a result of that and our quality dental care, our patients stay with us for years. They are fabulous people.

We do our best to help our patients find financial solutions, maximize their insurance, and schedule appointments with their time as a priority. My work is very rewarding, and I get great satisfaction from working with Dr. Zanni. It has been my privilege to be a member of a team that achieves quality dentistry every day and is committed to excellence.

And now, more than three decades later—I’m still here. That says it all!

Ginny is married, Mom to two cats named Zoey and Chloe, can be seen line dancing once a week in Beverly, and indulging in her love of attending Boston and local music theater.



    I spent four years as a Certified Dental Assistant after attending Northeastern University’s Dental Assistant program. After that, I went on to Dental Hygiene School at Middlesex Community College and graduated in 1990 as a Registered Dental Hygienist.

    Dr. Zanni is an amazing dentist who truly loves what he does. He takes the time to get to know new patients before he starts treating them, to see what their needs are, and to answer their questions. He will spend as much time as he needs to help his patients get the perfect smile they have always wanted. He keeps up with the latest techniques and, quite simply, he does beautiful, quality dentistry. More than that, he cares about his patients.

    I enjoy my work, and as a member of Dr. Zanni’s staff, I can say we all truly enjoy what we do. I have worked with patients from three years of age, to 90+. I treat them all as if they are family members. It’s rewarding to be greeted with a hug, to see pictures of their grandchildren or their wedding ceremony, and to hear how great their teeth feel when they leave. The best part is the satisfaction I receive from helping a patient learn to take care of his or her mouth, including great home care.

    I want to make my patients’ experience in our office a positive one. We see our patients as more than just a ‘set of teeth.’ I think that’s what sets us apart from other dental offices in the area—how much we care about our patients.

    Janice is married and lives in Peabody with her two teenage boys and her rescue pup—a Chihuahua mix named Ace. She keeps busy and enjoys reading, baking and watching her boys at their sporting events.



      Walking into Dr. Zanni’s office, the charm of the historic house turned dental office and the welcoming staff, I knew I wanted to be a part of the team. I come from a flight attendant background and spent many years assisting medical students by offering a calm and reassuring presence as I helped administer the Step 2 CS exam. My focus at Dr. Zanni’s office is on the patients and helping everyone feel they are in excellent hands, which they are!

      Dr. Zanni cares deeply about each patient and nothing gives him greater pleasure than seeing joy and satisfaction on their faces and in their smiles. He embodies the saying- If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life! His enthusiasm is contagious.

      Our training and education is ongoing as our office is always keeping up with the latest in dental care. Whether it’s partaking in Spear education or podcasts we endeavor to stay on the cutting edge of 21st century dental techniques.

      As a former flight attendant, I strive to give every patient a first class experience. Our team works together to ensure a smooth visit. From Ginny’s welcoming smile upon arrival to Dr. Zanni’s individualized personal approach to Debbie and Janice’s compassionate care. I’m excited to be part of the team and look forward to meeting you!

        Having been a Dental Assistant for many years, I decided to return to school and graduated in 2011 with a Dental Hygiene degree.

        It has always been important to me to be involved in my patients’ overall oral health, as well as being able to collaborate with their dental provider regarding diagnosis and treatment planning. Doing so in a practice that is committed to quality, state-of-the-art restorative and cosmetic dentistry, while providing a warm and comforting atmosphere, is of equal importance to me. Dr. Zanni has provided that dental care and atmosphere by being committed to higher education, keeping current with the advances in dental treatment options, and providing a warm, patient-centered environment.

        In addition to outstanding dental care and camaraderie with my co-workers, I enjoy interacting with our patients on a daily basis. Dr. Zanni has built his dental practice around the most dedicated patients. Many of his adult patients have been under his care since childhood and are now bringing their own children to him for their dental care.

        Debbie lives in Georgetown with her husband and four children aged 16-23. Her current focus is preparing her two daughters for college. In addition to her family, one of her great delights is the cat her son brought home to her while working at a grocery store and aptly named “Cucumber”.

          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!
