Meet The Staff – oral surgeons of charlotte
Dr. Colleen Peleaux
I have always had a passion for helping others and became interested in the dental field at an early age. I graduated from the dental assisting program at Tri-County Technical College in 2010. I began working at a dental imaging and oral surgery office in Columbia, SC where I learned the importance of establishing a caring and trusting relationship with patients. After getting married in May of 2012 I happily relocated to Charlotte. I was blessed to find such a wonderful position here with Dr. Peleaux. I enjoy working closely with our patients to ensure their time at our office is as efficient and effortless as possible.
I spend my time outside of the office enjoying life with my husband, Chris and our dog, Chloe. I love cooking, spending time with our family and friends and exploring all that Charlotte has to offer.
I started working in dentistry in 2010 when I joined the United States Air Force. I had the pleasure of being stationed in the United Kingdom where I worked with two fantastic oral surgeons. When I left the military I became a certified dental assistant and decided to make the Charlotte area my home. I was fortunate enough to be chosen to join Dr. Peleaux and his team at Oral Surgeons of Charlotte. I love working with patients and helping them feel comfortable. Everyone here strives to ensure our patients come first and that makes coming to work all the more enjoyable.
In my off time I enjoy spending time with my friends and family. I also love trying new foods, playing video games, watching Netflix shows, and swimming. I’m excited to explore North Carolina’s diverse environments, from the mountains, to the beach and the city.
I have been working in oral surgery offices since 1991. In my years of experience, I have found the most rewarding aspects of my work to be easing patients’ anxieties and making their office experience comfortable. As a part of Dr. Peleaux’s team, I work to do just that.
As a graduate of Louisiana Tech, I enjoy watching LSU sports in my off time, as well as spending time with my family and kids and playing tennis. Being from Louisiana, good food is a passion of mine, and finding it in Charlotte is a fun hobby in itself. I also enjoy visiting the Florida Panhandle to vacation on the wonderful beaches.
