Payton_CottenHi! My name is Payton, and I am Dr. Sledge’s clinical assistant.  I was born and raised in Madison, MS.  I joined Carter Sledge Family Dental in 2009, and started my dental assisting career here in 2011.  Working alongside Dr. Sledge,  I have the wonderful opportunity to focus on the general and cosmetic aspects of dentistry and take part in smile-makeovers!  Reviewing before and after results is so rewarding and motivates me to continue my education in this exciting profession.  Dr. Carter and Dr. Sledge have taught me a great deal, and I truly love what I do!
