Longtime Smyrna dentist Dr. David Deakyne recently welcomed Dr. Michael Nies to Deakyne Dental Associates in Smyrna.

“We’re very happy to have him in our practice,” said Deakyne, whose son, Dr. David Deakyne Jr. also works at Deakyne Dental Associates. “Having a third doctor here will help make things a lot easier for all of us and for our patients.”

Dr. Nies, a doctor of dental surgery, graduated from the University of Maryland Dental School after earning his bachelor’s degree from Wheaton College in Illinois. He served his residency at the Veterans Affairs Hospital in Baltimore. Before moving to Delaware, he worked in a private practice in Bloomington, Indiana.

His wife is also a dentist, working in Dover.

Dr. Nies said he is excited about working with the Deakynes.

“They’re well-respected in the community. They do high quality work. That was important to me,” he said. “I like being in a partnership, too, where we can share ideas and consult each other.”

The smaller, more intimate setting in Delaware was also attractive to Dr. Nies and his wife.

“I like how close you are to everything here -- the beaches, the cities -- but it’s still a small-town atmosphere,” he said. “I’m looking forward to working here in a real caring, friendly environment, and establishing a good relationship with my patients.”

David Deakyne Jr. said Dr. Nies will be a great asset to the practice and to the community.

“We’ll be able help serve more patients, and with all the growth in Smyrna, we need the help,” he said. “Dr. Nies brings a lot of energy and enthusiasm, and because he graduated more recently from dental school, he knows the latest information. Dentistry changes so quickly, it’s nice to have that input.”
