“I always wanted to be a dentist, as it was the perfect match for my skills and interests with helping people and improving their lives. Opening my own practice has allowed me to provide the highest level of dental care that I was trained to perform for all my patients, rather than work in corporate dentistry or managed care, where either the patient or I would be forced to make compromises in dental care.”
Dr. Lambert is focused on solving dental problems, relieving pain, and helping patients smile. Through his commitment to patients and hard work, he received numerous school honors, such as membership in several honors societies including Oral Surgery Honor Society, Endodontic Honor Society, Periodontal Honor Society, and Crown and Bridge Honor Society. Dr. Lambert has also received prestigious awards such as the Alpha Omega Award for Highest Scholastic Standing, the American Academy of Gold Foil Operators Award, and the Academy of General Dentistry Outstanding Senior Student Award.
Knowing that the field of dentistry is always changing and evolving, Dr. Lambert has continued his education so that he is able to study and learn the most advanced techniques and treatments. He has taken more than 2,900 hours of training in areas such as cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry, dental implants, surgery, and emergency care. In fact, Dr. Lambert is part of an elite group of Pennsylvania dentists participating in PEAK, a continuing education program offered by the Pennsylvania Academy of General Dentistry. Many years of advanced study led to a Fellowship award and ultimately to Mastership, the Academy of General Dentistry’s highest honor.
Dr. Lambert spent ten years teaching at Northampton Community College Department of Dental Hygiene. He was awarded the Dental Department Teacher of the Year Award in 2007 for his efforts at Lehigh Valley Hospital Department of Dental Medicine, where he is volunteering his time.
