Your smile is a big part of who you are, and at Lasting Smiles of Bethlehem, we are honored to be your dental health caretakers. Dr. Ajay Patel is a highly skilled general dentist who helps patients maintain great oral health with advanced hygiene, cavity prevention, and state-of-the-art dental treatments.
At the back of the throat, there are several soft-tissue structures that can collapse against the airway, such as the uvula, the back of the tongue, tonsils, and adenoids. During the day, throat muscles keep the airway open but when you sleep, especially if you sleep on your back, the muscles relax and air can be partially or fully blocked by collapsed tissue.
A person with sleep apnea may stop breathing several hundred times every night and each time can be for as long as a minute and even longer. This makes for a poor night’s sleep and chronic fatigue as well as other health problems. This is not a rare condition – many people suffer from undiagnosed sleep apnea. Even visits to your doctor may not lead to a diagnosis, as there are no blood tests to detect it and you are breathing normally during the day.
Dr. Patel and his general dentistry team offer the following general dentistry services:
If you or a member of your family experiences fear, stress, or anxiety during the time in the dental chair, Dr. Patel offers conscious sedation with nitrous oxide or oral medication. Conscious sedation allows you to have your treatment or cleaning performed in a safe, relaxed state, free of worry.
Comfortable General Dentistry
It is the little touches that make our general dentistry visits enjoyable and comfortable. You can use our noise-canceling headphones to listen to music from our satellite radio programs during your treatment. Help yourself to our juice and coffee bar. Children are welcome to bring in their favorite DVD to watch during their time in the chair. Our Tempur-Pedic pillows, blankets, and warm towels after treatment help you feel at home in our office.
High quality, Always professional and smiling
Again highly professional, friendly and nice he makes me feel like family.
I very highly recommend Lasting Smiles! Everyone there is so friendly, professional and really knows their job whether it is with insurance, routine cleaning, or any kind of dental work. My appointments are always on time and that is very rare these days.
There is a reason this is one of the few top rated dentists in our area. I had to switch because of my insurance, so I read reviews for all the dentists in our area that participate with my insurance. There were only two that had a near perfect rating. The staff are so welcoming and friendly. The exam and the cleaning were the most thorough I’ve ever had. The office was neat and clean with warm and comfortable decor. The two ladies at the front desk were so nice and welcoming and Linda was the friendliest and best hygienist I’ve had in my 38 years of going to various dentists around the country.
Excellent Visit with Dr. Sulzbach and with Linda for my hygiene appointment. Very professional and friendly office. Definitely would recommend this office for your dental needs. They make things easier especially when the dental office is not your favorite place. Thank you to Dr. Sulzbach and staff for the expert care throughout the years and keeping me smiling.
Very pleased with the staffs professionalism during my visit. Highly recommend this dental office.
During my recent appointment with Dr. Sulzbach I was greeting by the smiling and friendly women at the reception desk. I was seen on time for my appointment and was treated with professional care. The dental assistant was concerned with my comfort and Dr. Sulzbach explained his procedures as he repaired my tooth. Overall it was a very good experience.
Was a good experience…staff is always friendly.
The staff is very professional and friendly. They know I have anxiety when it goes to going to the dentist. The make the whole experience pleasurable.

Such a friendly environment! I’ve never liked going to the dentist until I started going here a few years ago – everyone is so welcoming and pleasant I actually look forward to seeing them! I’ve recommended them to several friends and family members and will continue to do so.
