Important Appointment Information

We ask that you be on time for your appointments. Except for

emergency situations, you can expect us to keep to the appointment

schedule. Your appointment is reserved time, so if you need

to cancel, please call us immediately and we can offer your time to

another patient. 404-255-9080

Insurance Information

Our goal in this office is to provide the very highest quality dental

treatment available at a fair value. If you have insurance, we will

do everything to maximize your dental insurance benefits. We can

estimate your copayment far in advance of your treatment.

While some might rely exclusively on insurance to fund their care,

we believe most will see insurance as a supplemental benefit to

superior, modern care.

ImportantNote: We ask that you pay all estimated copayments

and deductibles for treatment at the time it is registered. Our estimates

are subject to final approval by your insurance company.

That means the amount we calculate as due, is subject to change.

Financing Options

We’ll sit down with you for a confidential, informal

discussion and develop a plan to help you attain

the confidence, health, and beauty you deserve.

We strive to provide this exciting, long lasting care

to all those who have highly prioritized its value.

It’s an investment for our patients that matches our

investment in esthetic/restorative education, technology,

and modern dentistry techniques.

Financial Arrangements

First, insurance is often based on minimal levels of restoration or

traditional treatments, so it usually will under-reimburse patients

for modern, effective treatments.

Second, many people are not able to pay everything up front for

this important treatment.

Fortunately, we can develop flexible financing arrangements

that include:

* Cash - which includes money orders and personal checks.

Complete cash payments before treatment qualify for a 5%

early payment reduction.

* Credit Card - we accept MasterCard, Visa, American Express

and Discover.

* We are pleased to offer Capital One Healthcare Finance to our

patients. Capital One Healthcare Finance is a convenient, no

initial payment, low monthly payment plan for dental treatments

of $1,000 to $25,000. Offering Capital One Healthcare

Finance allows us to make the smile you’ve always

wanted affordable.

* Dental Fee Plan

• No initial payment

• Low monthly payments

• As long as 60 months to pay

• No prepayment penalty

• $1,500 to $25,000 is available (apr)

Your New Secret Weapon.

Atlanta Aesthetic and Laser Dentistry

Modern cosmetic dentistry has revolutionized the way

people think about their smile. Improvements in care

and materials can do wonders to get teeth healthy and

beautiful so that you look good on the outside but feel

great about yourself on the inside.

Socially and professionally, others will take notice. This

has been confirmed by a recent independent study conducted

on behalf of the American Academy of Cosmetic

Dentistry (AACD), the world largest group of cosmetic

dentists:

• Virtually all Americans (99.7%) believe a smile is an

important social asset.

• 96% of adults believe an attractive smile makes a

person more appealing to members of the opposite

sex.

• Three-quarters (74%) of adults feels an unattractive

smile can hurt a person’s chances for

career success.

Each of our aesthetic dentistry cases is treated as a

work of art. Through a caring one on one approach,

our goal is to engineer and blueprint dazzling smiles

for our patients that are designed to last. We treat the

overall beauty of a person rather than just the individual

teeth. Often, we work with talented specialists

in the dental and plastic surgery fields to get the best

possible outcomes.

Through the evolution of porcelain restorations and

advances in occlusion research, we can rejuvenate not

only the smile itself but also the entire face to make

our patients look exceptional. Our goal is to change our

patients’ lives and exceed their expectations.

Our happy patients can’t wait to tell us about how we

made their smiles into one of their most important assets

improving their self-confidence and their prospects

for romantic and career success.

Are you are ready for a life-changing smile makeover?

We can now combine painless laser dentistry with the

miracle of conscious oral sedation,

add in a little of the art and science of

cosmetic dentistry, and together we

will reverse the ravages of time and neglect in fewer,

painless, life-changing visits.

At Flax Dental, it all starts with the nurturing atmosphere

that we provide for all of our patients. “We’ll

never lecture you or put you down because of natural

anxiety, even phobia,” says Edi Sprouse, our Business

Concierge. “We’ll listen and give you the chance

to share your previous experiences with us and talk

about your individual situation. This way, we can address

your concerns

about dental care, and

then treat your needs

while you are in our

care.

Dr. Hugh Flax has been

at the forefront of a

new movement in dentistry

-- laser dentistry.

“Instead of using outdated,

painful drills, we

can now use lasers to

treat our patients. This

means significantly less

trauma to the tooth

structure, a quicker recovery

time and a better

overall experience

in the dental chair,” he

explains.

As a nationally known lecturer and teacher of using

lasers, Dr. Flax is a secret weapon in the fight to revoluionize

how we think about visiting the dentist. Using

the state-of-the-art Waterlase, Dr. Flax gently

and conservatively treat cavities, gum abnormalities,

and even root canals... often without anesthesia.

The secret is the proprietary Erbium Garnet wavelength

of light that turbo charges water droplets to


patient comforts

EVERYONE is a VIP

cleanse the debris from the tooth

and gums without the heat and vibration

of the typical dental drill.

Just like pressure washing the deck of a house!

Even better, the laser creates a wave of analgesia

to make the tooth more comfortable, desensitizing

it. Dr. Flax calls this “biostimulation” a huge

breakthrough with dental lasers by promoting a

much better and quicker healing response with

less need for medications.

One of the other advantages of the Waterlase is

that by minimizing the need for any anesthesia,

a busy person can get

dentistry work done

“I will never forget

the great movies, the

warm neck pillows, the

blanket for my cold

feet, the phone calls the

afternoon of a procedure

just to make sure I

was feeling ok, but

most of all the Chinese

soup you sent home

with me.... Now that’s

good bedside manners!!

Again, thank you for a

great experience and a

little more confidence in

myself.”

Jennifer Wertheimer

in fewer visits as well

as causing less interruption

of their ability

to speak or chew

during the business

day.

And because of the

healing powers of laser

technology, gum

abnormalities, infections

and ulcers can

be more comfortably

improved than with

conventional methods.

And now we’ve raised

the bar even higher

by making sedation

a normal aspect of

treatment for those of

our patients who want

to “wake up” with incredible

smiles and no

unhappy memories.

CONTINUED...

All our patients deserve a high-level of treatment

comfort and results. We present educational

information so our patients understand their

options and can make an informed decision. In

addition, we add technology that removes the

boredom from your visit.

We use no-drill dentistry techniques, one visit

smile whitening, intra-oral cameras, video

glasses, headphones, new smile previewing

software, and more comfortable general care

technology.

All of our patients are VIPs... so it is a pleasure

to provide you with 1st Class pampering. Always

feel free to enjoy any of our Comfort Menu

items.

Start your visit off with something from our

Juice Bar just inside the door, offering:

• Filtered Water

• Juices

• Tea

• Coffee

During your treatment, we offer exceptional

comfort:

• Personal CD players for jazz, R&B, new

age, rock, and country listening.

• Movies Galore - classics and those

you’ll feel very comfortable about your smile.

Conscious oral sedation is accomplished with just

a small blue pill, no IVs and no injections. The

effects of the pill are extremely

mild -- similar to

slight intoxication -- but

after the appointment, our

patients have no memory

of the experience. The pill

is a very safe, short-acting

sedative-hypnotic related to Valium and often prescribed

by many physicians to help people sleep

better. The pill is taken at home one hour before

their scheduled appointment and the patient is

driven to the office.

When they arrive at the office, they are covered

with one or two warm blankets and will sink into

a very, very soft Tempurpedic mattress especially

fitted to Dr. Flax’s chairs. All their vital signs are

Most people will tend to sleep very lightly through

their appointment. “Because you are so totally

comfortable, we can transform a smile often without

numerous dental appointments.

“That is a big time saver for people with busy

schedules,” says Sandie Abernathy, the Treatment

Concierge who coordinates the smile and health

transformations in the office.

When the visit is over, a small cup of fruit juice

helps people wake up.

Most patients will go home and sleep restfully.

They usually remember nothing about their visit

and feel much less discomfort because they had

no anxiety from their care. Best of all, when they

look in the mirror, they see a smile rejuvenated

and regain their confidence.

Sedation dentistry and the Waterlase have answered

the prayers of many anxious people who

have been avoiding improving their health and

having the smile they’ve always wanted. Their

confidence and appearance are rejuvenated!

Even better, when combining lasers and sedation

with cosmetic dentistry, they remember little of

their visit, have much less discomfort than with

other techniques and receive all the benefits of a

world-class smile.

Dr. Flax adds, “For my staff and I, who pride ourselves

in providing high levels of customer service

and results, we feel that we have a special place

for people to have total comfort and respect. We

finally have a way to bridge the gap between technology

and comfort.”

continually monitored by a sophisticated medical

instrument called a “pulse-oximeter.” When the

patient is absolutely comfortable and totally relaxed,

the actual dental care is done.

Dr. Hugh Flax, Atlanta’s best kept secret, has

invested thousands of hours into becoming

one of the nation’s most accomplished

cosmetic dentists and has earned the honor

of being Accreditied by the AACD.


“I have completed a total mouth

‘makeover’ and the results are

spectacular! I am constantly

complimented on my smile and

teeth. They look so natural

myself that was so well worth the

research, the consideration, the
