Dr. Flax's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Flax "Dr. Hugh Flax is an award-winning, internationally respected cosmetic dentist who strives for perfection with every patient. He has a passion for continuing education and far exceeds the state of Georgia requirements by averaging 150 hours of continuing education each year – nearly eight times the required amount. Even though his reputation continues to attract patients, it’s his gentle, caring demeanor that keeps them returning time and time again. In addition to being accredited with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Flax has earned numerous awards and certifications in dental implant care and laser treatment. He attends numerous advanced training meetings throughout the world including the Kois Center, AAID Maxicourse (a mini-residency in implants), the Academy of Laser Dentistry, and the Pankey Institute to continually improve his care for his patients. Very soon, he will have completed the certification process to receive Mastership with the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, as well as having completed the extensive credentialing process to be recognized as an Associate Fellow with the American Academy of Implant Dentistry.
