"Smiles by Payet is like playing T-ball where adults go to be kids and everyone is a winner. Firstly, I should say they won’t read your horoscope before and after your dental cleaning. But what they will do is out of this world. Let me start off to say I’m a big chicken when it came to my dental care. You can’t use the excuse that cavemen got by without it why couldn’t I? I had severe social anxiety for 25+ years which I blame mostly on bad dental appearance. To add fuel to my phobia, a few rough nights of drinking, minus a bottle opener, chipped my two front teeth. Not a pretty sight. Being a shy, ultra dental noob, I wanted a down to earth dentist that I could feel comfortable with. With the power of the internet and Google I stumbled upon several impressive Dr. Payet’s reviews from clients and took a gamble. With my initial meeting, Dr. Payet came across as someone I’ve known for a long time. He was calm, patient, and extremely knowledgeable. He took time to provide detail consultation on my options after understanding my needs. His staff (Adrienne, Sam, Rosie, Marie) were extremely personable which eased my fear all without Valium. So after 7 months (in no particular order) of LANAP, 4 wisdom teeth, 2 chipped teeth, fillings, 6 months smile braces, and cosmetic whitening am I happy with the results? Hell yeah. I would do it all over again without hesitation. So, I gained a great smile and lost years of social anxiety. That in my opinion is priceless.""Dr. Payet changed my life. Other than a great experience with my normal cleaning, he suggested another type of night guard that might help with my headaches. I haven't had a migraine in 8 months now, thanks to him! I would recommend him and his staff to anyone in the area. Thanks again!"

"As a child I had braces, but back in those days, braces were like today’s retainers. I lost mine, and my mother said that she didn’t have the money for another set. I went through life accepting my crooked, buck teeth, and would just cover my mouth when I was talking to people, and would not smile much. Last year, I saw an advertisement in our local paper, and mentioned to my husband that I would like to go for the free consultation. I joked with Dr. Payet about even being able to do something with these teeth after 54 years. He said that I could do the six month braces, and I jumped at the chance, but was worried about the cost. Once the staff discussed the cost and also contacted my insurance, I was quick to accept the offer and see if Dr. Payet could actually do something for my smile. I am happy to say that I am probably one of his happiest patients. I love my smile and look now. Dr. Payet and his staff are the best. I can honestly say that I am no longer afraid of the dentist. Give Dr. Payet and his amazing staff a chance to make your smile great! Thanks!"

"The hygenist was awesome! I have very sensitive teeth and asked her to make sure that the water got squirted in the middle of my mouth. Not only did she remember but she was empathetic of my fear of going to the dentist. She was gentle when going around my gum lines. Dr Payet was great as well! I didn’t feel like he was trying to get me to do a bunch of stuff in my mouth just so he could make a buck like some dentist offices. I would highly recommend this practice."

"I’m greatly impressed with Dr. Payet and his office. The staff immediately made me feel welcomed. Ebony is a great office assistant, very personable on the phone. The décor is very regal and classy. More importantly the evident knowledge and care that Dr. Payet has is admirable. It’s great that the office is paperless and they are utilizing great technology. I’m glad I found you. I’m sorry it took me so long. See you soon!"

"Dr. Payet and his staff were wonderful as always! They made me feel comforatable and apart of the Smiles family. I’m all too sad that I won’t get to see them for another 6 months as we have seen each other at least once a week for the 4 weeks! =) Finding Dr. Payet’s office has been a life changing experience and has completely changed how I feel about visiting the dentist. He is the most humane and gentle doctor I have ever encountered. This behavior is mirrored throughout the office by his staff and, as I’ve had a chance to meet a few of them, by his patients as well! (I’m very hard-pressed to even use the term “patient” because they really do treat you like family!) Most of all he genuinely cares about the people he treats! Sorry Dr. Payet, but you’re stuck with me for life! =D Thank you so very much! God bless!"

I'm writing for my husband who had two wisdom teeth removed on 5/30/12. Dr. Payet's staff accommodated us on short notice and we received excellent care and attention. Dr. Payet is extremely competent and really loves working to make your smile better. Excellent service in every respect. Thank you!

I love the fact that I can go to Dr. Payet for all of my dental work -- He's a Periodontist, Orthodontist, Oral Surgeon and Family Dentist in one!! His staff is wonderful and treats you like royalty. They go to great lengths to accommodate your needs. Going to the Dentist is a treat!

I recently moved to Charlotte and found myself in need of a Dentist due to a cap falling off in the front of my mouth. I chose an implant and also needed three extractions. I felt very comfortable with my surroundings! Netbook used to fill out information and TV's in every room! I also came to find out the Dr Payet made his own web site and is a photographer. Would recommend this dentist to ANYONE!

I have been going to Dr. Payet since I moved to Charlotte over 10 years ago. He is always professional and is up to date on the latest technology. He has taken care of my entire family and I have referred him to all my firends. They have a great dental plan for those who do not have insurance and are always looking at ways to help me save money. The staff is always friendly and very detail oriented. My little girls love going to the dentist as the office is very child friendly and they get to watch tv while their teeth are cleaned. The toy box is a big hit afterwards too!
