Learn About the People Behind the Smiles!

Our Dentist, Dr. Paymon Pahlavan
Dr. Pahlavan obtained his undergraduate degree from the University of Houston and completed his dental degree at the UTHSC School of Dentistry at Houston. He enjoys spending time with his family, going out for dinner or movies, and watching sports. He has been a Houston resident since 1984.

At the beginning of 2011, Dr. Pahlavan had a vision to create a dental office with a friendly, trusting, and warm atmosphere. Most people, adults and children alike, are very apprehensive about visiting a dental office, so Dr. Pahlavan set out to build a private practice that would welcome the whole family. His goal was to offer a friendly yet professional environment for providing dental care, educating patients about oral care, and preventing dental decay and problems. At Smile Barn Dental, Dr. Pahlavan and his friendly staff are prepared to help your family maintain good oral hygiene, prevent cavities, and feel good about their smiles.
