“Top Dentists, 2018” July
We were happy to see Chewsi included in the “Don’t Worry, Be Appy” chart, but we need to correct a misrepresentation that you made. While you can use the Chewsi app to get an estimate of the price you will pay for a particular service at a particular dentist, Chewsi’s purpose is not about comparison. It’s about helping people get significant savings on their dental care. Chewsi’s goal is to make it easy for people to get the care they need, whether they have insurance or not. By connecting people directly to dentists, we’ve removed the middlemen that typically bring higher prices and complicated processes.
Gone are the days of paying monthly payments and needing to know what your insurance does or does not cover. With Chewsi, people only pay for the services they get, saving on every service, every time.

The June Issue
The June issue was the best in the three years since I moved to Rhode Island and subscribed to the magazine. There were several very interesting and informative articles that captured my attention. I read it from cover to cover. Keep up the momentum.

“Top Doctors,” May
In your May issue, you recognized Sara Delaporta, M.D., as a top doc in family medicine. However, because Dr. Delaporta does not practice at a hospital, her affiliation was listed as “none.” Dr. Delaporta is a devoted provider at our West Warwick facility, where our staff cared for more than 16,000 Rhode Islanders last year. Congratulations, Dr. Delaporta. We’re proud to have you on the Thundermist Health Center team.
