Meet Dr. Julie Quinn Nies
Dr. Julie Quinn Nies was born and raised in Dover, Delaware and, as the only “Quinn kid” to follow her father’s career choice, returned to join him in practice in July 2010. Dr. Julie received a Bachelor of Arts from Boston College and, like her father, graduated from the University of Maryland Dental School. After a hospital residency in Wilmington, Delaware, Dr. Julie continued to Indianapolis. Here she completed her pediatric dental residency and received a Master’s of Science in Dentistry. At Indiana University’s Riley Hospital, Dr. Julie served as Chief Resident and was awarded the Ralph E. McDonald Scholar Award for academic achievement.
Dr. Julie Quinn Nies is a board certified pediatric dentist and a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. She is a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the American Dental Association, the Delaware State Dental Society, and the Kent and Sussex Dental Society.
Dr. Julie’s father, Dr. Richard Quinn, retired in May 2016 after providing exceptional pediatric dental care for nearly forty years. Dr. Julie is honored to carry on his legacy at Quinn Pediatric Dentistry.
Dr. Julie lives in Wyoming, Delaware with her husband, Dr. Michael Nies, DDS and their four children. As a working mother of four, free time is hard to come by, however, Dr. Julie enjoys spending time kickboxing, indoor cycling, reading, baking (cookies, cakes and bread- oh my!), watching Harry Potter marathons, cheering for the Baltimore Ravens and all things Star Wars.
What is a Pediatric Dentist?
Establishing Your Child’s Dental Home
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry encourages parents and other care providers to help every child establish a dental home by 12 months of age. Establishing a dental home provides some key components to dental care for your child including...
• Comprehensive oral health care including acute care and preventive services.
• Individualized preventive dental health program based upon a caries-risk assessment.
• Anticipatory guidance regarding growth and development.
• Plan for acute dental trauma (emergencies).
• Dietary counseling.
• Referrals to dental specialists when care cannot directly be provided within the dental home.
• Referral at an age determined by patient, parent, and pediatric dentist.
A Pediatric Dentist, like Dr. Julie, is a specialist dedicated to the oral health of children and the monitoring of their facial growth and development. Our office is designed for treating children from infancy through adolescence, as well as the medically and the physically compromised.
A pediatric patient not only has a different dentition than adults but he/she may have specific dental and behavioral needs that are unique to a child. These needs may include orthodontics, dental sealants, fluoride applications or home treatments, or just simply education in oral hygiene. In addition to treating existing dental problems, our office focuses on prevention through patient and parent education. We like to feel that you and your child do not come to our office to have their “cavities fixed” but rather to prevent them. Our office provides all of the educational tools necessary for our patients to enjoy a cavity-free future.
When a Pediatric Dentist is Board Certified it means that the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry or ABPD certifies that the dental care being provided is based on standards of excellence that lead to high quality oral health care for infants, children, adolescents and patients with special health care needs. Certification by the ABPD provides assurance to the public that a Pediatric Dentist like Dr. Julie has successfully completed accredited training and a voluntary examination process designed to continually validate the knowledge, skills and experience necessary to the delivery of quality patient care.

“We have closer options but I love Dr. Julie and the staff at QPD. One of my daughters was slow to get comfortable with having her teeth cleaned and they were so patient and nurturing with her - each visit got better and now she handles it like a champ. They are well worth our drive and I highly recommend them!”

Dr. Julie and her team are dedicated to great dental experiences.
We, along with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry,recommend you bring your child in by his or her first birthday.
During your first visit, you will be introduced to our Pediatric Dental Team, given an office tour and discuss your child’s unique smile and ways to keep it beautiful for years to come.
Depending on the age of your child, he or she will either be given a knee-to-knee examination (where your baby’s head will rest on our doctor’s knee while their body is on your lap) or a regular exam in the doctor’s chair.
We request that you complete our First Visit Forms prior to arriving for your appointment. This helps our office keep your and everyone else’ scheduled visit on time.
Your initial exam will last approximately 30 minutes. Oral hygiene instructions will also be given with suggestions to help your child care for their own teeth. In most cases, we will also clean their teeth on this visit, and provide an evaluation that will outline any existing dental problems and proposed treatment.
Please print and fill out our New Patient Forms. Bring them with you at first appointment, Thank You.
