Scholarship Information

Flax Dental, a cosmetic dentist in Sandy Springs, is investing in the next generation through the “Why My Teacher Makes Me Smile Flax Scholarship.” The “Why My Teacher Makes Me Smile Flax Scholarship” awards an annual $1,000 scholarship to be used for college tuition by a senior high school student in Georgia.

Dr. Hugh Flax, an Atlanta-based accredited cosmetic dentist, has dedicated his career to advancing the profession of dentistry and the care that patients receive by serving as an international lecturer, past president of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), and founder of the Georgia Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. His passion for education has inspired him to offer several scholarships, including the “Why My Teacher Makes Me Smile Flax Scholarship.” Here is a link to Dr. Flax talking about the scholarship program on CBS46.


To qualify for a scholarship, the applicant must be a senior Georgia high school student in good academic standing with a cumulative minimum GPA of at least a 3.0 (4.0 scale) who is on-track to apply for accredited post-high school/post-secondary educational programs (including accredited two- and four-year college, universities, vocational-technical and trade schools) pending receipt of a high school diploma.


An applicant must write a 400-600-word essay answering the question “How has a specific teacher (past or present) positively impacted your life and made you smile?” The essay must be submitted in Microsoft Word format or PDF format. Essays will be judged on effectiveness in presenting a personal point of view, clear communication, and originality. Please include the teacher’s first and last name, grade taught and school, and email address. Students can submit an application beginning January 2 at http://www.flaxdental.com/teacher-makes-smile-flax-scholarship/.


The call for submissions opens January 2. The deadline to submit an application is May 29.
