He continues his professional development as a member of the Toronto Central ITI (International Team for Implantology) Study Club focusing on dental implants and cosmetic dentistry, the Canadian Dental Association, Ontario Dental Association, and the Durham-Ontario Dental Society. He also attends continuing education courses that include training in short-term orthodontics, restorative dentistry, dental implants, root canal treatments, and headache prevention.

Beyond his work as a dentist in Ajax, Dr. Shields enjoys time with his family. He and his wife, Renee, have been married since 1988. They live in Toronto and are the proud parents of five children.

As the spouse of teacher, Dr. Shields is highly involved in education. He is the President of the Board of Directors of the faith-based high schools their children attend. He is also actively involved in his synagogue having served on its Board of Directors and as its President.
