Louisville, Ky. (January 19, 2018) – Delta Dental of Kentucky has been selected as one of the top 100 companies across the state on the 14th Annual Best Places to Work in Kentucky list.  Delta Dental was recognized in the small company category for businesses with 15-149 employees.

“We are honored to be among the companies in Kentucky selected for this list, and to have dedicated employees who help create a wonderful workplace each and every day,” J.
