Archive for July 2015
We have a regular dentist that we’ve been using. They claim they will call us every 6 months for a cleaning; however, I have noticed that the only time they seem to call us is during the season when they don’t have as many patients, such as rainy season.
Since we are paying for CAJA and they have a dentist there, I decided it was time to use what we are paying for!
Steffi was kind enough to allow me to borrow Ana Cecelia to go with me and show me the ins and outs of getting an appointment.
We arrived about 6:45 a.m., yes, a.m., to stand in line to get an appointment. Appointments are given out starting at 7 a.m. There may have been 10-12 people in front of us, but a lot more behind us.
I had our cedula’s, carnets, and receipt of payment for July. When it was our turn, Ana Cecelia just handed her the carnets. Never asked for current proof of payment or our Cedula’s. So, just like that, we both have dental appointments for July 16th. WOO HOO!!!
Before I left to meet Ana Cecelia, Mark had asked when I thought we’d get an appointment….I figured it would be great if it was August or September. I realize our age got us earlier appointments.
Just a little side note: I’ve never seen so many people walking around holding their jaw as if they were in pain. Pretty sure extraction was in their future.
All in all, a huge thank you to Steffi for letting me borrow Ana Cecelia; was fairly easy to do; standing in line and waiting is just part of the Pura Vida life!
