Smiles by Payet is a first-class dental practice. I’ve been going there for 15 years and they never disappoint. No long waits… ever…. superb staff with great knowledge, very friendly and professional. From laser fillings to routine dental care, I can’t say enough positive things about Dr. Payet. I would highly recommend this dental practice.

I’ve been one of Dr. Payet’s patience for more than 20 years. He is the only dentist i will see. Before him I had gone almost 19 years with out seeing a dentist due to the way dentists had treated me while growing up. Dr. Payet and his hygienists are very good. They are gentle and have great chair side manor.

You can’t teach or fake being genuine and genuine is exactly what the staff is at Smiles by Payet. I have been going to Dr. Payet’s office for many years now. Absolutely amazing experience the staff and dentist are above expectation. I hated going to the dentist. I bounced from practice to practice seeking a full service team with innovative technology and steadfast experience until I found Dr. Payet. I truly can’t say enough and I am never the type to leave reviews but they deserve it.

Tami N. from Columbia, SC (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Payet is the best dentist SC/NC‼  I was referred to a peridonist that almost caused me all my teeth!  I did my research and found Dr. Payet.  He healed my gums and saved my gums with his amazing knowledge and top technology!  He is very friendly gentle; easy to talk to and so is his staff!  I’m sooo thankful I found him and you will too!  The absolute BEST dentist‼

Dr. Payet and his team were super accommodating and flexible with me. As I college student, who rarely gets home – I wasn’t expecting to get all my treatments done before I had to leave but they worked with me and I am super appreciative. My hygienist handled me with care and Dr. Payet made me feel very comfortable during my fillings. I highly recommend them.

I have been a dental patient of Dr. Payet’s since 2000 and have been uniformly pleased with the service and treatment received. Dr. Payet is extremely knowledgeable about dental procedures and strives continuously to stay up to date with the latest techniques available. Dr. Payet’s staff has always been courteous to me, making sure that I was comfortable and that I understood what procedures were going to be performed that day. I have recommended Dr. Payet to numerous friends, and they have been uniformly pleased. I would recommend Dr. Payet to anyone seeking a dentist.

Kathy C. from Sunset Road, Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


I have NEVER had a bad experience here, nor have the five other people I’ve referred to him. Everyone raves about how great he is. I’m not sure why they’re bad reviews because I spent thousands and lost multiple teeth from another local dentist before finding Dr Payet and having him correcting my bite without surgery or pulling more teeth. The staff is always friendly and they always accommodate your needs I highly recommend him

Julie W. from Madrid, Spain (Source: Yelp)


I recently moved to Charlotte and had to find a new dentist which was difficult for me because I’ve been a lifelong patient of my former dentist (out of state). I was set on finding a dentist that could use a laser to remove a cavity as I am terrified of novocaine and drilling. After reviewing his website and making a quick inquiry call, I was optimistic but still a bit nervous. Everything about the experiences with Dr. Payet and his staff has made me feel relaxed and comfortable which has been a huge relief. The front desk ladies are very polite and helpful, my dental assistant (Rose, I believe) was kind and knowledgeable, and Dr. Payet has been fantastic. I’m sure they could all tell how anxious I was, but everyone did a great job of putting me at ease. I had to have a follow up appointment to have my filling adjusted, but he was very patient and concerned about getting it just right. He did a great job of addressing questions and he enthusiastically explained the laser technology when I was skeptical of the relatively pain-free procedure. I’m happy to have found my new dentist and absolutely recommend him (them) to anyone looking.

Best dental practice ever! Dr. Payet gave me my smile back, after I walked around for 20 years with unattractive teeth. After meeting with Dr. Payet and seeing examples of his beautiful work, I was convinced he was the best dentist to help me. The work he did and his responsiveness to my questions and unique circumstances far exceeded my expectations. His empathy, skill and professionalism made the entire process very smooth. The hygienist, Amber, is very nice too. I am so very pleased with the experience and would recommend Dr. Payet and his staff to anyone looking for a dentist.

Dr Payet and his staff are the best! I have been a patient of his for over 15 years. He is always upbeat, happy, and personable. I was in a car wreck a couple years ago and was hit in the face with the air bag. One of my bottom teeth was knock loose. I requested that he xray it a couple extra times around my regular cleaning to keep an eye on it, and he was happy to oblige. After carefully and diligently monitoring it, we recently decided tthe best course of action was to go ahead and do a procedure to help keep it from dying. I was extremely nervous and forgot to take the prescription for anxiety (which only caused me to have more). The office staff were extremely patient, kind, and helped me relax by talking to me about it. Dr Payet’s technique for numbing my mouth was completely painless, and by the time the procedure was over, I was almost embarrassed that I had so much anxiety to begin with! The best part of all was that he gave me a very gracious discount due to the fact that I had lost my job and didn’t have insurance. Dr Payet and his team always go above and beyond what is expected for their patients. After over 15 years I have always felt confident in his expertise and the service he provided.

As far as dentists go, these guys are good (meaning I hate going to the dentist. Any dentist) What I appreciate about these guys is their care, procedures, equipment and non pushy approach. Having said that though, dentists are in the field of “perfection” so most recommend doing things to your teeth to achieve that. I myself prefer the look of a somewhat original smile, (a crooked tooth here and there does not make me think one needs braces!) The difference I have found at this office is that they listen to you, allow you to question things and gain a full understanding of what is being recommended/suggested, and then allow you to make your own decision with freedom. Bravo.

I have been going to Dr. Payet’s office since I moved to Charlotte in 2013. He is simply an amazing dentist that genuinely takes pride in his work and does an amazing job. The staff at Smiles by Payet Dentistry are the best as well. They are always super nice and always willing to accommodate your schedule. I highly recommend this office to anyone looking for a dentistry.

I’ve been seeing Dr. Payet for several years and can honestly say it was the best decision I ever made. Dr. Payet and his team take a very reasonable and holistic approach to dental health. Laser dentistry is very comfortable compared to the traditional approach for repairing a tooth. Also he and his staff take the usage of PPE very seriously which makes me as a patient feel comfortable in a clean and safe clinic.

I used to be afraid of the dentist… yes even as an adult! My experiences with Dr Payet and his entire staff have always been very pleasant and welcoming since day one. I feel like I am a part of their extended family. At one point my teeth needed all the help they could get and are now coming along nicely. Tip of the Day: Following Dr Payet’s dental plan will set you up with teeth for life! #SmilesByPayetPatientForLife

I have been coming to Dr. Payet and his staff for a few years now and undoubtedly its been the best dental related experience I have ever had. From the first day I visited this office I’ve felt as though I’ve been cared for and treated like family. Ever since I moved from another dental office to Smiles by Payet, my teeth have felt great and look the best they ever have. Their equipment is state of the art, modern, and I would highly recommend this office to anyone needing a dentist or in my eyes and extended part of your family to take care of your dental needs.

As someone who has had extensive teeth work done ever since I was a child, I have seen many different dentists. Dr. Payet is by far the best and my favorite. I’d recommend him to anyone any day. He never pushes me to do anything I don’t feel like doing, and he only recommends the most necessary procedures. Because of his expertise my teeth feel healthy and strong.

I have been going to Dr. Payet for 11 years after not seeing a dentist for over 5 years. Everyone at his practice is friendly and professional. They really do treat you like family and not just another patient. Dr. Payet takes his time to really get to know you. Dr. Payet removed all 4 of my wisdom teeth which was a bit involved. He took great care of me and even gave me his cell number in case I had any issues over the weekend. I’ve had to have some minor work done on my teeth and needed a mouth guard as well due to grinding my teeth. Dr. Payet and his staff goes above and beyond to ensure you’re completely satisfied. If there’s an issue he’ll do what’s necessary to correct the situation. Dr. Payet keeps up with the latest advancements in dentistry as well. He offers a wide variety of services. Each hygienist I’ve seen has been great. I usually see Amber who is so sweet and really makes you feel at ease. I have friends who see him as well because of my recommendation and they feel the same. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

The staff is extremely professional and caring. They make you feel like you are the only one that matters. As for Dr. Payet, he is gentle and kind. He truly cares about the comfort of his patients. I had laser filling and was apprehensive at first, but it was a good experience and I will request it from now on. Good job guys.

Everyone that works at Smiles By Payet, is very friendly and provide excellent service. I can honestly say, I have never experienced any pain. In addition, appointments are always scheduled and conducted on time ! Dr. Payet has been my dentist for at least 10 years or more providing EXCELENT Service.

I’ve been coming to Dr. Payet for a little over a year now and I have always gotten such great care. I cannot recommend him enough! From beginning to end, the practice is great. The dental hygienist are great and always make my visit even more pleasant. Both Dr. Payet and the hygienist are great with explaining procedures and answering any questions I have. I’ve been to several dentist and Dr. Payet is by far my favorite!

Sarah F. from Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


Thank God I finally found the right dentist after years of bad experience, he gave me my life back with the laser periodontal therapy, as no one could diagnose the real issue. Dr. Payet was a God sent. I can’t be thankful enough, he was so kind, patient and knowledgeable and his entire staff is professional. The very best dentist

Zupash T. from Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


Had an ongoing dental pain and I emailed them when severity increased. Their concerned response was prompt, and they offered me to check in, so Dr. Payet can examine my dental discomfort. Very courteous of them to accommodate me within their busy hours. Not only that, Dr. Payet took all the time despite a packed schedule; to go over with questions, symptoms and onset of pain after a set of xrays were taken. Ran a few tests, went over care instructions in detail and offered to contact their office again anytime the pain returns. Peace of mind is where concerned doctors and their welcoming staff put you first. That’s where Smiles by Payet is.

This is the first time I have written a Google review for anyone but it is deserving. I had nothing but great experiences while going to see Dr. Payet. His team was amazing and very professional and he did a great job explaining everything that he was doing and listening to what I had to say. He kept me calm during all of my appointments and answered all of my questions. After seeing many different dentists I can say that Dr. Payet and his team are the best I have seen and I will continue to go there and would highly recommend them to anyone. The office itself is very new and state of the art and his staff is top notch and his hygienist is great with kids and is very thorough. You get to watch TV while having your teeth worked on as well. The front desk staff speak for themselves when it comes to making sure everything is explained about the next visit. No calling back to schedule appointments, no waiting on hold FOREVER!, and above all you don’t have to deal with last minute appointment scheduling. All around Professionals!

Rose F. from Clover, SC (Source: Yelp)


I’m Rose & my husband is George & we hope to reach as many people as possible to share our wonderful experiences dealing with Dr Payet & his fabulous staff! I started about 3 yrs ago needing gum surgery to correct gingivitis… great job done w/a laser in about 3hrs. Now having healthy gums, I decided (age 65) that I wanted straight & white teeth. After 1yr 1/2, I now have the teeth I always wanted! My husband was so impressed w/my work that he decided to do a full set of implants!!! This was quite a challenge, since he had top implants done several years ago! The new had to fit w/the old… the process started in Oct 2015 & was just completed yesterday 6/16… it was WELL worth the wait! Dr P was there for us any time we needed him… New Year’s Day, Sat. before & after hours, etc! We both can’t say enough about the man & the dentist!!! He is both very talented & dedicated to his work! Also, Jessica at the front desk is to be commended for “working her magic” w/appointments & a smile! Amber, Rose, Meagan, & Charlene, do an outstanding job w/ cleanings, fittings & X-rays & Farra keeps all the finances straight & answers questions honestly & quickly! We would highly recommend Dr. Payet to our family & friends!

Historically, I hated going to the dentist. I bounced from practice to practice seeking a full service team with innovative technology and steadfast experience. Over 8 years, I started going to Smiles by Payet. Dr Payet and his entire team caters to the needs of each individual. They perform due diligence assessments to recommend all of your needs. The prioritization estimate allows you to order service as they suit your urgency, schedule and budget. Over the years, I referred a number of people to Smiles by Payet. All are satisfied completely. With our great success in my maintenance, I decided to add Invisalign to my services. The process reasonably priced, easy and fast. I would strongly recommend Smiles by Payet for all our your family’s dental needs. You will refer a friend.

At Smiles by Payet Dentistry you will be treated with exceptional professionalism, kindness and understanding of all matters from the dental work you need to your financial needs. I had laser surgery followed by an extract and on to Invisalign’s. Each step of the way I was reassured of everything taking place both pros and cons. All the assistants and techs are kind, friendly and present a very welcoming atmosphere. Following my surgery I was unable to eat my favorite foods so as a chef I developed chewless meals that gave me the taste I was looking for without the hassle of needing to chew. If you find yourself needing an awesome recipe for chewless meals like chicken pot pie please feel free to watch by detailed how to video on YouTube under Chef and More. In the mean time Smiles by Payet Dentistry is the place to go!

What a wonderful experience for something that most people hate to do. Including me! The office is immaculately clean and the dentist’s office is in a really nice building. The signage is a little hard to find but just head to the office building address # and walk in the front door. You won’t miss it after that. The receptionist staff was attentive and helpful. The whole paperwork process was relatively effortless and they even offered to help obtain my x-rays from my previous dentist. Overall, I was very happy with the service and Dr. Payet’s bedside manner. He was very informative and didn’t seem like he was rushing me in and out. He let me ask questions and he took the time to elaborate on his answers. I will definitely be back for years to come. Thanks! Enjoy!

I’ve been seeing Dr.Payet for the past six months. Today I went in because I was having dental pain and suspected the tooth would need to be pulled. When Fara realized I was in pain she worked to get me in right away even though it was almost closing time. Dr. Payet did pull the tooth. The pain was gone and I am grateful.

Natalie Ryland (Source: Google)


I’m so glad I found Dr. Payet! He and everyone at his office is very warm and professional. They make you feel like their only patient, and provide personalized service I haven’t found anywhere else. Amber is a wonderful hygienist and always offers tips to optimize my dental health, and Farrah in reception is so efficient, she will have you checked in and out in a flash. I highly recommend Dr. Payet!

I am terrified of the dentist. Met with Dr. Payet yesterday and his team. They were amazing! He is so friendly, funny and personable. He took the time to even help with billing and write out my treatment plan. NO other dentist has ever done that before. I would see them for 10 min and then they would leave. He was with us the whole duration of the appt explaining everything. The ladies there were also fantastic. What a team! I plan on going back in two weeks and I’m looking forward to it!

Alisha Snell (Source: Google)


I have been going to Dr. Payet for several years now and absolutely love him. He does a fantastic job and makes you feel so comfortable and he is extremely knowledgeable. I never thought I’d say I look forward to going to the Dentist but I truly do now!!! The staff is always welcoming and warm. Amber is amazing my favorite hygienist!!! Go and make an appointment with Dr. Payet you won’t regret it.
