Meet Our Staff
The staff at Deem Dentistry provides patients with quality dental care they can trust to achieve a healthy smile. Located on West Van Trees Street in Washington, IN, we have been providing patients of all ages with cosmetic and general dentistry services since 1982.
Dr. Darrell Deem
I graduated from the IU School of Dentistry in 1982. I am originally from Knox County and planned to move back to start my own practice. As I was finishing school, an opportunity to practice in Washington opened up and I decided to give it a chance. I have happily lived and practiced dentistry in Washington ever since. During my time in Washington, I met my wife Shelly and we raised, our now adult, children, Meredith, Austin and Maddie. In my off time, I enjoy bike riding, playing with my dog, Hudson, and watching the Hoosiers play anything and everything. Something that you may not know about me is that I love to play pickle ball!
Dr. Austin Deem
I graduated from the Indiana University School of Dentistry in 2018. I loved growing up in Washington, and I knew that I wanted to return home and practice dentistry with my dad after I finished school. During the summer of 2018, I moved back to Washington with my dog, Penny, and I began practicing at Deem Dentistry. During my free time, I enjoy boating, playing golf, and cheering on the Hoosiers. Something that you may not know about me is that I coach the Washington Catholic High School girls’ soccer team!
