At Always About Smiles, we are dedicated to serving the families of the Bethlehem, PA area. In fact, we treat patients of all ages! Whether you are an older adult with tooth replacement needs or your child just needs to come in for a checkup, we can help. We offer a wide range of family dentistry services and invite you to join us! On this page, we have provided some important information for your family. We will talk about what to expect from your child’s first visit to our dental office and some preventive dental services from which the whole family can benefit. Feel free to contact our office with any questions or concerns you may have.
Your Child’s First Dental Visit
Your child’s first visit to our office is designed to be fun and stress-free! We will introduce them to our team and help them get acquainted with the typical signs and sounds of a checkup appointment. Our hygienist is particularly great with kids! We can show your child, through an interactive and stress-free visit, that going to the dentist can be fun! It’s important to help your child build good oral hygiene habits when they are young — allowing them to get comfortable at our office is a great start to building those routines.
We offer complimentary first-time visits for your young children. Bring your baby in for a “well baby” oral exam to make sure that all teeth are developing normally and that they are healthy. You can help your preschool-aged child get comfortable with visiting the dentist by allowing them to get acquainted with our team. Regardless of your child’s age or little quirks, we can help them stay healthy and feel good about taking care of their smile!
Preventive Family Dentistry services
We also offer preventive family dentistry services that can be used to avoid major dental problems for patients of all ages. These preventive dental services are particularly great for kids because they will allow them to stay healthy right from the start.

Choosing A Musical Instrument For Your School-Age Child
Before your child engages in playing any musical instrument, we recommend speaking with Dr. Lambert about your child’s dental health. Certain types of instruments can cause dental problems with teeth alignment, gum difficulties, and bite or jaw development. Millions of children play instruments that have been haphazardly selected for them by a parent or music teacher. By discussing your child’s choice with our team, we can help you avoid the potentially serious dental problems that may occur.
