Bethlehem Family Dentist Unveils New Dental Savings Plan

BETHLEHEM, PA --(Marketwired - March 31, 2016) - Dr. Thomas R. Lambert, a longtime Bethlehem general dentist, has begun offering a special dental plan for patients who do not have dental insurance.

The office's new program, the Office Patient Loyalty Savings Plan, can be used toward a multitude of dental treatments that traditional dental insurance companies commonly do not cover.

"I am proud to offer this new membership plan to new or current patients who don't have dental insurance, or who are looking for a better hassle-free alternative to insurance," Dr. Lambert said. "I believe nothing should get in the way of receiving the dental care you deserve because good dental health is also important for overall health."

Under Dr. Lambert's patient loyalty plan, patients don't have to worry about high monthly premiums, approvals, annual maximums, co-pays or dental claims. Dr. Lambert's new membership plan can be used on even extensive treatments like cosmetic dentistry or dental implants.

The loyalty plan is convenient and affordable. The patient covers a monthly fee, which gives them complete coverage for their preventive and diagnostic dental treatments. Patients also are eligible for a 15 percent discount on any dental procedure, from emergency and cosmetic to restorative and dental implants. This special program is available only to those without insurance, and it's not possible to carry membership benefits into the next year.

Dr. Lambert said many of his current patients have switched to the plan to avoid high insurance co-pays or to find a solution to poor dental insurance reimbursements.

"With our plan, patients know exactly what they're expected to pay at the time of treatment," Dr. Lambert said. "There's no waiting for approvals or reimbursements, and you don't have to worry about insurance companies not covering your dental treatments."

Always About Smiles, 2299 Brodhead Rd., is a modern facility with the latest technology and comfortable equipment. The staff is trained in all aspects of dentistry, including cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry, sedation dentistry, sleep apnea treatment and even dental implants. The practice offers dental implants to replace single missing teeth, full arches of missing teeth or to stabilize dentures. An accomplished musician, Dr. Lambert has more than twenty years experience in the treatment of brass and woodwind embouchure, facial pain and other special dental problems of musicians. Dr. Lambert works with professional symphony and band musicians locally and around the country to correct detrimental dental problems that can significantly impact their ability to play. At the same time, Dr Lambert is available to parents to discuss the selection of musical instruments for their children with dental problems.

Dr. Lambert was born and raised in Pennsylvania. He graduated with a biochemistry degree from the Pennsylvania State University and then graduated at the top of his class from Temple University School of Dentistry. He also completed a one-year General Practice Residency at Lehigh Valley Hospital, where he has been on attending medical staff for 28 years.
