There are dentists (the kind that can give you filling), then there are specialists (like Endodontists, who treat the areas of inner tissue of the teeth and Periodontists who specialize in gum tissue), then there are dentists who specialize in "cosmetic dentistry" and then...there is Dr. Flax.
I say this because I know for a fact that Dr. Flax is one of the most respected and talented dentists in his field of work. Not in Atlanta, but in all of North America. Like a skilled artist, it takes months, if not years to not only do the work, but to acquire the skills to be able to give a patient "a perfect smile".
Oh...you say there is no such thing as a "perfect smile?" I would disagree. I cannot tell you how many complete strangers have complemented me on my smile. Maybe they were being kind...but when it gets to be in the thousands over the years, you have to start to believe that it is true. Today, Dr. Flax finished my implants which was a two-year journey. It was not short of extraordinary.
Most implants do not take anywhere that long (two year), but I had a very difficult case. Replacing a six-unit bridge (my 6 FRONT teeth) and getting it absolutely correct, as well as aesthetically beautiful is not a job for any dentist. Yes, there are dentists in town who will tell you that they can do it, but I can assure you that no dentist will give the attention to detail as Dr. Flax and his staff.
The other thing to note is this important question: "How much time does your dentist spend on continuing education?" This is highly critical, as advancements in surgical techniques, composite materials and equipment have changed rapidly in dentistry over the past decade. Dr. Flax not only attends dozens of conferences a year, but he is also lectures and teaches other dentists on the latest procedures.
So what is the price of a smile? For me, you cannot actually put a price on it. Let me put this way. Think of Ervin "Magic" Johnson. Besides his great basketball career, what THE thing you think of when you think of Magic? His smile! Today, I got a Magic smile. Actually, I had one before today, from the magical work that Dr. Flax did for me in 2005, when he built a bridge that was "ahead of it's time", but what he finished today was nothing short of awesome.
It is hard to find doctors and dentists who are at the top of their game. Most of time, when we are looking for one, we have to rely on "word or mouth" or do hours of internet searches looking for the "right person". Save yourself some time and see Dr. Flax. He is one the best dentists on the planet.
