The best dental practice in town. I have been a patient for more than 17 years and have referred numerous friends. And before becoming a patient, I hadn’t visited a dentist in years because of bad past experiences. My outlook completely changed after becoming a patient of Dr. Pappert. She and her staff are friendly, professional, and excellent at what they do. They treat patients like family members and make even the most difficult procedures comfortable and painless. If you are looking for a dentist, look no further.

I’ve been a patient at this dental practice for nearly 30 years. I can’t imagine going anywhere else. The entire staff is top-notch and extremely well-trained. Everyone is capable, caring, and extremely kind. They want to be sure that patients are not only given the best possible dental care but also treated with the utmost respect and courtesy. I highly recommend this dental practice.

Our family has been going to the Pappert & Kirk Family Dentistry practice for over 15 years. Over this time, we have seen several different hygienists and they have all been very, very thorough and professional. On several occasions over the years, we’ve had dental emergencies. The practice has been so responsive, and the doctors have gone out of their way to accommodate our situations. Lastly, one of the things that most impresses us about the practice is how up to date the dentists, hygienists and staff are, and how the latest technology is effectively employed. We’ve always had the utmost confidence in the care we have received. Keep up the great work!

I have been visiting this family Dentistry for the past 3 years I have been living in Charlotte and I have to say I give them 5 stars. Emily my hygienist is simply amazing and she knows how to put me at ease the moment I walked in the door. She is so amazing I won’t let anyone clean my teeth lol.. everyone is great but I have to give her a shout out! Thank you Emily

Awesome staff! Very friendly and caring. Dr Pappert is excellent, extremely knowledgeable and I love the time she took to talk with me and explain my options and procedure in detail. Although I knew I wasn’t, she made me feel like I was her only patient. I am very happy with the service and dental expertise that I received and would highly recommend to anyone. I was amazed at the outcome of my dental treatment and have a beautiful smile again!

I was a regular patient of Dr Pappert’s from 2004-2016 when I moved away. I’ve had a lot of dental issues all my life (40+ fillings, 2 crowns, braces, gum disease) and she’s the best dentist I’ve ever had. Funny, kind, thoughtful, and so knowledgeable. Recently, I had a dental issue while on a business trip in Charlotte, and even though it had been 2.5 years since I left, they remembered me (the staff is so nice!), got me in right away, and her and Dr Kirk were so incredibly helpful. I came in in tears, but left on the mend. While I like my new dentist, I wish I could keep going to Dr a Pappert, as impractical as that would be.

I cannot day enough good things about this office. Today was my first visit and they were very thorough asking me about my teeth history, what I want my teeth to look and feel like, and what procedures I will need done to keep my teeth as healthy as possible. Everyone was so nice Ian’s they make sure you’re 100% comfortable and happy with your service. They explain what they are doing and why they are doing it and make sure you are not in any discomfort. My sister has a mild fear of the dentist and I can’t wait for her to come and get over that fear because of the amazing staff at the office THANK YOU!!!

I’ve been seeing Dr. Pappert since I moved to Charlotte in 2012. I’ve been through many cleanings, fillings, and impressions! She always knows what I need to protect myself from my uncontrollable grinding/clenching – “high heels!”. Kelly is a fantastic hygenist and knows exactly how to make me feel comfortable during my cleaning. Leanne is always so sweet and helpful. I highly recommend this practice!

I can’t believe I haven’t left a review before now! I’ve been coming here for 14 years, and I absolutely love the office and the staff. I didn’t go to the dentist for eight years before coming here due to anxiety, and now I look forward to every appointment. Dr. Pappert is a very skilled dentist and is incredibly sweet. I love Tiernee, my hygienist, she’s hilarious and amazing. Johnnie practically watched me grow up, she’s like my second mom, and Sally and LeeAnn are always my first and last stop to check in and check out and just to say hello. If someone had told me 14 years ago I’d be hugging dentist office staff every time I came in, I would have accused them of getting into the Nitrous. I almost moved to Florida for work, and was still planning to fly up to Charlotte regularly so I could keep coming here. Will never go anywhere else, and will refer everyone I know.

this practice is clean, well kept and modern. the staff is polite and professional. in particular Miss Leanne and Miss Johnnie are especially pleasant to deal with. i found Dr. Pappert to be exceptionally skilled in treating dental problems. in my own case I am a cancer survivor with damage to my teeth from chemo and radiation treatment s. Dr. Pappert was able to save two teeth that i thought were lost causes. one tooth was treated by dr. pappert with root canal. that particular root canal was the most gentle root canal that I have ever experienced. the other tooth i broke while eating and Dr. Pappert was able to treat that tooth and save it. Dr. Pappert utilizes state of the art equipment and processes in her practice and therefore undergoing dental treatment is an easy experience. if you have been looking for a highly competent dentist with top notch skills who will be able to treat your dental problems in a gentle, efficient, pragmatic and professional manner …..go see dr. pappert and her staff.

Dr Pappert has been my dentist for 4 years and she’s fabulous! I’ve had fillings, crowns and implants done with great success. Her caring nature and willingness to listen to me as a patient are very important. Her hygienists are gentle and thorough and always explain what they are doing so I understand my treatment. A+++++

I had the best experience with Emily and Dr. Kirk! I hadn’t been to the dentist in a very long time so I couldn’t have asked for a better start back. I can tell a huge difference after my cleaning and am excited to continue this journey to improve my smile! Everyone was so nice and welcoming I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a new dentist. 5 stars

I’ve been Dr Pappert’s biggest fan for over 20 yrs! The staff is very professional always with consistently top notch dental hygiene care. I’ve been through crowns and root canals, a few extractions and occasional emergency care for my children – the whole gambit. The best thing for me is that she has a way to keep things pain-free more than any other dentist I’ve been to. Dr Pappert finds the solution that is best for you as a patient at the time. They look at each person as a whole, not just a mouth and make treatment recommendations accordingly. In my opinion you can’t go wrong here.

Love everyone who works there. Everyone makes you feel welcomed. The hygienist and dentist are very knowledgeable in the field. They not only care about your dental hygiene but they also get to know you and care about you personally! Love going to the dentist now that I go to See. Pappert and Kirk Family Dentistry!

Rachel H. from Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Pappert and her entire staff are simply wonderful! I always know I am under the very best of care from the booking of an appointment to the actual care and procedure. This group of professionals treat you as more than a chart….they truly care about your complete health. I cannot sing their praises any higher. They are THE BEST.

Abby A. from Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


I love this office! I’ve been a patient for about two years here. My cleanings are always thorough and fast. The dental hygienists are kind and courteous and it is always a pleasure to go in for a visit. Who else can say that about their dentist? An extra plus…They give you chapstick, along with your complimentary toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss at the end of your visit. It’s delicious and a nice touch!

Dr. Pappert and her staff provided me with exceptional dental care. From cleanings to fillings, this entire office will offer you complete, comprehensive, and professional care. My work was painless and thorough. Do not hesitate to call for your appointment today!

I’ve been seeing Dr. Pappert for over 2 years, she and her team have really made me feel at home when I see them for teeth cleanings and once when I had a cavity. I used to be afraid of going to the dentist before going to Dr. Pappert, they’ve helped me get my teeth in shape and and really feel like they are apart of my family and I’m apart of theirs. I’ve seen Dr. Kirk once when Dr. Pappert was not available and she was awesome as well.

I had such extreme anxiety when even just thinking about the dentist that I didn’t see one for a few years too many. I finally gathered the courage to call about sedation dentistry (as there was no way I would be able to make it through without it) and upon initial contact I immediately felt as though my comfort was their top priority. I had a bit of work to be done after not seeing anyone for so long, but Dr. Pappert and the team there has been absolutely wonderful. I’m still not to the point where I feel as though I don’t need any sedative, but I am to a point where I may be comfortable enough to give it a try (which is HUGE!). I would highly recommend the team here to anyone that asked.

Raquel N. from Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Pappert is a goddess & hero in my mind. Very thorough in the process of knowing all of your teeth. Came here from a referral who spoke so highly of Pappert. After speaking of how mine just seems to not care about anything in your mouth at all. Have to admit they are not inexpensive…actually very expensive (keep your fingers crossed if you have insurance it works with them). Once you get an appointment get ready to get in fast, so almost no waiting at all. The staff for any of the Dr’s are all so nice & sweet. I know many people out there are frightened to go to the dentist, but this is the place to go. All the butterflies in the belly go away:)

Robin D. from Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Pappert is thorough and has been methodically correcting issues with my teeth previously neglected or caused by other dentists. I enjoy her matter of fact, yet jovial, style of interaction and you can tell her staff enjoys working with her. The staff of hygienists and assistants are always friendly and make sure patients are attended to and comfortable.

Morgan Borkey (Source: Facebook)


The entire staff is so personable and kind, their attention to detail is superb. They always are so good at addressing patients by name and remembering the things going on in my life. I have been going here since I was three and I love this practice. The dental hygienists make every visit as fun, quick and comfortable as they can.

I have had the pleasure of working closely with the doctors and staff of this office for years and can honestly say they are the most caring and thorough team. The quality of dentistry coming from this office is above exemplary. The staff is very friendly, knowledgeable, up to date, and willing to help in any situation. The office coordinators are great. Very low turn around with hygienist and assistants, which means you will develop trust and relationships with them. I highly recommend this office and trust me I would know. 5 stars

Dr.Pappert and her orthodontic assistant Johnny always make my unfortunately frequent visits enjoyable. A big concern for me, they always make sure I’m comfortably numb before a procedure. I’ve been a patient of theirs for years, and by now they seem like family.

Dr Pappert is such an amazing dentist and everyone working here is fabulous! They are so pleasant and personal and treat every person as if they are the only (and certainly most important) patient there! I’ve been going there for almost 18 years and plan to keep going even after I we move several miles away soon. Feels like family to us 🙂 My 7 year old daughter had three baby teeth extracted recently and (it may sound crazy but) it was SUCH a great experience! She’s been coming to Kid’s Day (magician, balloon animals, treats) here for years and even won the coloring contest once! When we determined that her teeth needed to be pulled, she was so EXCITED (#1 bc of the money she’d get from the tooth fairy and #2 bc she LOVES it there). The day of, everyone made her feel so comfortable (encouragement, tv/blanket) and the TOOTH FAIRY even showed up! The process was very quick and painless and she loves this practice more than ever now!

Dr. Lori Pappert has been my dentist for over two decades and she’s awesome! She can stand on her head and fix anything in my mouth, which is a challenge. From root canals to crowns to partials, she’s the best with the latest technology in town. Highly recommend her and her staff that are by far the best around.

Emily and Dr. Pappert was awesome! I haven’t been to the dentist for 7 years and they made the whole process so smooth and comforting. Dr. Pappert was really informative during my consultation, making sure that all my questions and concerns were answered. Emily was really gentle with me during my gum therapy, making sure that I was comfortable at all time. She did such a thorough job – I can see and feel a difference in my gum and the way my teeth looks. I would recommend them to everyone I know!

A few years ago, I was looking for a dentist and got a recommendation from a friend. Her recommendation? Pappert & Kirk Family Dentistry. From the hello upon arrival to checking out, you are welcomed with friendly faces. Dentists can already make me nervous so it’s nice to see a smile. During my time with PKFD, I have been pleased with appointments (routine dental work) and dental hygienist, Tiernee is a gem!

Dr. Lori Pappert and her team are amazing. Our family of six have been patients of Dr Lori for over a decade. It’s refreshing to see smiling faces that immediately put you at ease. They’ll take the time to answer any and every question you have. They’ll work with your schedule to get you the services you need. And when an emergency happens, they’re all hands on deck to help. Trust me. You’d never know my top two front teeth were broken off in an unfortunate coach vs football helmet incident. I often have to resort so showing pictures on my phone because nobody believes me. The real proof is in the attitude of each of our four children: not one fears going to the dentist. Dr Pappert and her tremendous staff are the reason why. Thank-you!
