What makes your specialties the right fields of medicine for you?
Being a general dentist right now is simply the best. With the huge advances in technology (microscopes, CAD/CAM, lasers, etc), it's possible to do almost everything in 1 place, and the variety of procedures we offer makes every day an adventure. If all I did every day were fillings and crowns and check-ups/cleanings, it would get really dull, but we get to transform patients' lives with Six-Month Braces, Cosmetic Smile Makeovers, bonding, and more. It's FUN!
What is your favorite procedure to perform and why?
Favorite procedure? That's an easy one - Six-Month Braces. It's such an affordable way for adults to dramatically change their smile, and it's fast and pretty comfortable, so when they get to look in the mirror at their new smile for the first time..man, that feels GOOD.
What procedure would you like to do more of and why?
More Six-Month Braces and more Laser Periodontal Therapy! Can't really get enough of either of those. With the first we give patients a beautiful smile of which they can be proud; with the second, we get to help people keep their teeth and avoid dentures.
What Sets Us Apart
Excellence and experience in cosmetic dentistry, amazing smile transformations with Six-Month Braces, and saving smiles from gum disease with Laser Periodontal (Gum) Therapy.
I have lived in Charlotte since completing my dental degree at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Dentistry, and I opened Smiles by Payet Dentistry in the Morrocroft/Southpark area of Charlotte in December 1999.
Some may think it odd that a dentist really loves his profession, but I truly love what I do. Every day is different, every patient is unique and special, there is ALWAYS more to learn, and so I get to have fun doing what I do. Dedicated and passionate about learning, striving for constant improvement, I've attended many of the top post-graduate institutes for Continuing Education, and I frequently contribute clinical cases to various online professional dental forums. A number of these cases have been published, too. In a typical year, I attend 55-100 hours of clinical Continuing Education so as to stay abreast of advances in dentistry.
Besides being an eternal student of dentistry, I enjoy passing on what I've learned to others; in that capacity, I've served as an Adjunct Clinical Instructor at the UNC School of Dentistry, where I enjoyed helping dental students learn and refine their skills, and I've served as a Faculty Mentor at the Nash Institute for Advanced Dental Learning, where I had the pleasure of teaching other dentists the advanced skills in cosmetic and esthetic dentistry necessary to complete complicated and challenging cosmetic dental work. And once I started offering the CEREC 3D system that allows us to make single-visit porcelain crowns, I founded the Charlotte Professional Study Club for the greater Charlotte area to help all dentists using this remarkable technology to serve their patients better.
I am fortunate and blessed to have three special women in my life: my wife Fara and our daughters, Natalie and Elizabeth, who keep us very busy; add in 2 dogs (both of whom were pound rescues), and we have a full home life.
Besides spending quality time with my family and taking care of you, I somehow manage to find time to enjoy a number of hobbies: photography, cooking, ballroom dancing, and reading.
