Meet Dr Payet

Dr. Payet has been a dentist in practice since 1998 in Char­lotte, NC. He moved to the area immediately after finishing both his undergraduate degree in 1994, and den­tal school at the UNC-Chapel Hill School of Den­tistry in 1998.  Dr. Payet is not a Charlotte native, but is connected deeply to the area as his mother grew up in Albemarle, and his father went to UNC Chapel Hill. Almost all of his family is in North Carolina. He is a true-blue Tar-Heel at heart!


Dr. Payet believes that some people may find it odd that he absolutely loves being a dentist. He loves to share his passion for dentistry by explaining that every day is different. He is able to work with patients individually to find the best outcome for their unique situation. Dr. Payet has attended the top post-graduate Continuing Education courses and is always looking to stay ahead of the industry standard with 55-100 hours of advanced training every year.


Dr. Payet is an eternal student of the dental profession. He has also enjoyed teaching at the following locations:

  • As an Adjunct Clin­i­cal Instruc­tor at the UNC School of Den­tistry, help­ing den­tal stu­dents learn;
  • As a Fac­ulty Men­tor at the Nash Insti­tute for Advanced Den­tal Learn­ing, where I taught other den­tists advanced skills in cos­metic dentistry;
  • Founded a Pro­fes­sional Study Club to help all Char­lotte den­tists using the CEREC Same-Day Crown CAD/CAM system;
  • Lec­tur­ing on, and writ­ing a blog about, den­tal pho­tog­ra­phy, help­ing other den­tists inte­grate this use­ful and pow­er­ful com­mu­ni­ca­tion tool into their office;
  • Lec­tur­ing on the ben­e­fits and tech­niques of com­bined Laser Peri­odon­tal Surgery and Den­tal Braces


Dr. Payet is for­tu­nate and blessed to have three spe­cial women in his life: his wife Fara and their daugh­ters, Natalie and Eliz­a­beth. He enjoys a full, busy home life with his daughters and two pound-rescue dogs. 


Dr. Payet is passionate about photography and cooking along with his dentistry practice. He would enjoy getting more involved with reading to relax and ballroom dancing.
