Why Choose Shield Fun Fact: Did you know that our practice name, Shield Dental Care, was founded during a family night dinner. While gathered around the dinner table we were coming up with names, when my Nephew (The “Shields Family”) looked right at us and said his name as a recommendation. It dawned on us that the word Shield had the perfect connotation. Who would have thought that a three year old would have such an influence on our practice!

Payam Ghorbani

Payam has been with Shield Dental Care from the beginning with his brother, Dr. Ghorbani. Payam has been part of the Burke community for the past several years. He thoroughly enjoys working so close to home! He graduated for George Mason University, with honors, where he received three business degrees. Since graduating, he has concentrated on all aspects of accounting, marketing, and business management of our dental practice.

Payam’s goal at Shield Dental Care is for every patient to walk away with a smile. As a family-owned business, Payam and his brother want the staff and patients to see and experience a different type of dentistry. To create a relaxing and stress-free experience, Payam and Dr. Ghorbani put thought into every aspect of the office starting with the design and the overall ambiance of the office.
