A great news story by NPR on Sleep Apnea in children
NPR aired a story this morning (March 5th, 2009) that has to do with snoring, sleep apnea, and the wide-ranging effects that they can have on behaviour, brain function, etc. This is something I”ve been studying and talking to patients about for several years now, but it’s gaining wider acceptance in the medical fields. On the most basic level, sleep disorders cause a decrease in oxygen levels to the brain, which results in various decreases in function and can have significant effects on your overall health.
Please take some time to listen to the reports and read the articles – wonderful information!

Dr. Charles D. Payet and Our Team
Smiles by Payet Dentistry has been caring for patients since December 27th, 1999 in South Charlotte, and we recently moved to a new and improved location on Park Rd. I opened the practice 18 months after graduating from the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry in June 1998. While Smiles by Payet Dentistry is a General Dentistry practice, we offer an extremely wide range of services so our patients don’t need to see multiple specialists except in very complex cases. I am absolutely committed to constant learning and improvement, and have attended lectures and seminars by many of the nation’s premier post-graduate teaching institutions and lecturers in order to stay as current with the most modern techniques and materials possible. 50-75 hours per year in Continuing Education is not unusual for me, and in 2009 my goal is 75-100 hours.
Our Smiles by Payet Dentistry Team is currently comprised of the following people, whom you will truly enjoy meeting and choosing as your primary dental healthcare providers:
Rosemary B. is one of our Certified Dental Assistants and has been with us since back in 2007. A mother of 3 grown boys and a proud grandma to 2 grandchildren, she’s one of those people who just loves to help take care of people. With over 20 years of experience in dentistry, she is very knowledgeable and can answer most any of your questions. Along with Marie, she is there with me during your treatment to make it go as smoothly as possible.
Samantha H. is our new (as of Summer 2010) full-time Orthodontic Dental Assistant. We are excited to have her on board to help take care of our growing family of patients with either 6MonthSmiles Cosmetic Adult Braces or Tip-Edge Comprehensive Orthodontics. With 13 years of experience in a full-time orthodontic office, she brings a lot of knowledge on how to make your braces appointments fast and smooth.
Katrina B. (Insurance/Financial Coordinator) is our newest team member, and one we are really excited to have found. She says she is excited about finding us to work with, too. 🙂 She has been in dentistry for 22 years, having started as a dental assistant. Since her Dad was in the Navy, she was actually born in Morocco, Africa (!) and grew up in cool places like Guam and Hawaii, but she considers Fort Mill her home and moved back there in 2009. She is happily married with 2 children who keep her busy, but in her spare time she enjoys reading, gardening, crafts, and singing in her church choir.
Adrianne M. (Registered Dental Hygienist) joined us early in 2010 and has been helping us keep our patients healthy and educated on taking good care of their teeth. With 11 years experience and a passion for particularly helping patients with periodontal disease, she is very excited about being part of an office that offers Laser Periodontal TherapyTM. She really enjoys going to local health fairs to educate the public on the importance of good dental health, especially in Hispanic communities, as she speaks Spanish. She has a 4yo daughter who is an incredible bundle of energy, so the rest of her free time is spent taking care of her daughter.
We are blessed to have a Team that really enjoys working together, and their combined 100+ years of dental knowledge and experience are melded to provide you some of the finest dental care available.
