About Zahner Dental

Our team has been serving the Ellington community for almost 40 years now, and we’re proud of our unique blend of old-fashioned customer service with high-quality state-of-the-art dentistry . Dr. Warren Zahner and his two sons Dr. Jonathan Zahner and Dr. Shawn Zahner are local residents deeply invested in the practice and the community.  Our office space is warm, clean and welcoming and our staff is kind and thorough.  We mentor dental students and teach at Hartford Hospital Dental Clinic, and we have a long history of volunteering locally and abroad to provide dental care to the less fortunate.  We hope to build a lifelong relationship with our patients and coach them to excellent oral health. 

What Sets Us Apart


Dr. Warren Zahner started practicing in the Ellington area in 1977, and raised his family in town. Small town values are deeply embedded in the culture at Zahner Dental. We treat others with respect and integrity, as we would wish to be treated.

All Ages Welcome

Balancing the varied dental needs of an entire family can be a hectic endeavor. Thankfully, our team is able to care for everyone in one convenient location, whether they’re 3 or 103. Our services covers a wide range, from simple checkups and cleanings to advanced specialty procedures.

State-of-the-Art Technology

We make it a point to stay up-to-date with the latest developments in the dental field, improving treatment accuracy, speed, patient results, and much more.

Focused on Comfort

Helping patients feel comfortable is very important to our team. Our in-office amenities and sedation services create a modern dental experience with extra attention to the details that help relieve dental anxiety.

Emergencies Accepted

Don’t hesitate to contact our Ellington, CT location right away if you or a loved one is experiencing severe dental pain and/or a damaged tooth. Our doctors will do everything in their power to fit you in on the same day as your initial call – in fact, in most cases, we’re able to see emergency patients in just a couple of hours.

Convenient Hours

Zahner Dental is open five days a week, and on Tuesdays and Thursdays, our team offers early morning and evening hours in order to accommodate your busy schedule. You deserve to visit a dental practice that’s willing to be flexible towards your needs instead of it always being the other way around.

Committed to Our Community

At Zahner Dental, you’re more than just our patient – you’re a friend and a neighbor. Our whole team enjoys being involved in the Ellington community whenever we can, sponsoring health fairs, farmer’s markets, and other important, local events. We also love visiting schools and libraries in the area and teaching children about the value of taking care of their teeth with brushing and flossing.

For every family that visits the dentist regularly, there’s another one that simply can’t afford routine care – and they may live closer than you think. That’s why our doctors regularly volunteer with the Connecticut Mission of Mercy, a two-day clinic that provides free care to the underserved and uninsured population. Oral health isn’t just about maintaining a healthy smile – it can affect every aspect of your life, including your ability to work, attend school, and feel confident about yourself. That’s why we treat this necessary service with the value and kindness it deserves.

Do you have an event or good cause that would welcome our support? Don’t hesitate to contact our practice and let us know!
