About Your Dentist

Payam Nazem, DDS

"I want each patient to have a comfortable, memorable, and positive dental experience.  It's quite common to feel anxiety or even fear at the mere suggestion of visiting the dentist.  My goal is to replace those negative feelings and help my patients enjoy every aspect of achieving the smile of their dreams." 

My Mission

"My team and I provide individualized, patient-based dental care.  We understand that each patient is unique and has his or her own concerns, expectations, and goals for their oral health. My job is to listen carefully to every patient, present their best options, and work collaboratively to create the best possible treatment plan.  I want my patients to experience all the benefits of a healthy, beautiful smile."


Dr. Nazem earned his undergraduate degree at the University of Maryland, College Park and his dental doctorate at the University of Maryland School of Dentistry in Baltimore. This was followed by a one-year General Practice Residency at York Hospital in Pennsylvania.
