quote marksRecently, I moved over a county and that necessitated a new dental policy from the marketplace. Actually, not really a new insurance plan. But, I had to cancel the current Delta Dental plan and apply for the same Delta Dental policy. Silly and wasteful, I think. The office gal at Cornerstone was so patient and professional, as I barraged her with questions! The cleaning visit itself was a nice experience, as well. The new hygienist was friendly and conversational. The Doctor was thorough and concise. I was in and out in just over an hour. Not a bad way to spend my lunch hour.
