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!
