Dr. Bradford L. Picot's Credentials
Accepting New Patients
Originally from Shaker Heights, Ohio Dr. Bradford Picot received his undergraduate degree in Business Administration from the Kenan-Flagler Business School at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. As a Morehead Scholar (now known as Morehead-Cain) at the university he was initiated into Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. and also served as a drum major in the marching band. Dr. Picot remained in Chapel Hill to receive his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree and later completed a general practice residency at the Palmetto Health Richland Memorial Hospital in Columbia, SC. In September of 2009 Dr. Picot opened SouthEnd Dentistry at the age of 28 with the vision of providing the best in dental care, utilizing the latest in technology, in a soothing environment for its guests. In a space that used to serve as a private golf club, Dr. Picot designed and built a dental practice that doesn't seem like a dental office. Countless hours are spent designing and executing customized treatment plans for our patients and re-strategizing how to create an even better experience for them. 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, orthodontics, gum and bone health, cavities) to assess what can be done in your best interests. Service has always been a priority for Dr. Picot as he founded the UNC Malawi Dental Project, an annual service project encompassing free dental care and education on HIV/AIDS in Malawi Africa. Philanthropy has extended to donating a student locker room at new UNC School of Dentistry building and establishing the annual CommitMEN Scholarship Fund with fellow alumni at Shaker Heights High School. Devotion to service continues through annual participation in Give Kids a Smile, bus dentistry, and volunteering at various schools, recreation centers and career fairs. In the community he has served on boards focusing on educating and mentoring underprivileged youths and fundraised for the arts and the American Heart Association.
