Learn about Dr. Picot

Care Philosophy

Dr. Picot takes a comprehensive approach to treatment planning while practicing conservative dentistry. This means that he uses a team of specialists to strategize and design the best treatment plan for all of his patients.  Patients are referred to Dr. Picot to treat complex dental issues. His goal is not only to treat a patient's dental disease or main concern, but to make sure that the dentistry lasts as long as possible and that the cause of disease is addressed. Dr. Picot's goal is not to "patch up" dental disease but to take a look at the big picture (TMJ, occlusion, orthondontics, gum and bone health, cavities) to assess what can be done in your best interests.  

He practices conservative dentistry by coming up with a plan that will preserve as much tooth structure as possible. The more tooth structure that is conserved, the stronger a restoration or tooth will be. Dr. Picot also embraces the philosophy that cosmetic dentistry should not "look like dentistry." It should look natural.

First visit today. I'm one to do extensive research. On top of reviews, I was concerned about cleanliness of office, model and year of machinery, and practices. This office exceeded my expectations. I am impressed by the service provided and even more excited about the plan we've established for my dental care. Do yourself a favor and invest in the best. Southend Dentistry is just that. You will not be disappointed.

After my first visit I felt confident that Dr.Picot had my dental interest at heart. He took time to show and explain what was going on...His office and staff were warm,inviting,professional and state-of-the-art. I love that Dr.Picot supports local art. Several pieces of original artwork add to the richness of the office decor. This was definitely the most informative and relaxing dental experience I have ever had.

Everyone here is very professional and pleasant. They actually seem to enjoy what they're doing. Their process is smooth and they treat everyone with respect. Dr Picot never seems to have a bad day...at least he doesn't show it. Jess, the hygienist, did an excellent job! I have to travel a little bit to get there but it's well worth the drive.

I have been a patient of Dr Bradford Picot of SouthEnd Dentistry for several years now and I am extremely pleased with the care and concern that they give me I also love the atmosphere (very relaxing) throughout the office and the location is perfect…in South Charlotte…I am able to drive to the office in a minimal amount of time because it is near i77. The staff are courteous and the wait time has never been longer than 10 min…and that’s on a busy day The hygienist listens to my concerns and do

My appointment was for a ZOOM teeth whitening session which lasts between 1-1.5 hours. Brenda conducted my treatment which began with a prep period followed by one hour of bleaching and a five minute fluoride treatment which completes the procedure.
Thanks for the review! Please let us know how we can make your experience worthy of five stars next time.

I went to have all four wisdom teeth removed because they were becoming painful and were crowding my mouth. I was advised to just do local anesthetic instead of going under, and everything was clearly explained to me. After speaking with friends and family they all thought I was crazy for not going under. While I was nervous coming in, the staff made me feel safe. The procedure was quick and easy and most of all completely pain free. I've already recommended everyone to this practice.
Thank you for trusting us with your dental care Dani!

Dr. Picot is smart and thorough, and his office is wonderful. They checked with my insurance before I came in to ensure all procedures were covered. Five stars!
Charlotte, NC |
Completely unethical business practices. I've had multiple procedures done at Dr. Picot's office, which did not go so well: 1) Crown that had to be replaced 2) Onlay that Dr. Picot had to redo 3) Onlay that Dr. Picot placed then had to be redone as a crown at my new dentist because of pain. His billing practices are shady and his work is low quality. Fast food dentistry, all he cares about is money.

I've enjoyed every visit here at Southend Dentistry. The best dental experience I've ever had. I don't plan on going anywhere else. If you decide to come here you will be satisfied with Dr.Picot and his staff
