No, it only protects from secondary effects.

Shield Dust negates all possible side-effects whose probability would be boosted by Serene Grace: any side-effect would be prevented. It also blocks the side-effects of moves that have a 100% probability of a side-effect occurring regardless of Serene Grace, such as DynamicPunch. For example, Body Slam would only deal damage and not have its usual 30% chance of causing Paralysis. It does not stop moves that only cause these effects, like Thunder Wave. - Bulbapedia

Shield DustThis Pokemon is not affected by the secondary effect of another Pokemon's attack. -Showdown

The secondary effect will not effect it, meaning the effect from an attacking move. Like sludge bomb will poison as a secondary effect. In short terms, NO
