Jaclyn Quinn, Esq.

Jaclyn Quinn, Esq. has been serving the community for over 10 years through the Delaware Community Reinvestment Action Council, Inc. (DCRAC). The nonprofit law firm, DCRAC Law, provides representation in the areas of estate planning, deed transfers, and tax law. The firm serves the state of Delaware with offices in Wilmington and Georgetown.

Jaclyn, and her husband Kyle, live in New Castle County with their five-year-old daughters. In her free time, Jaclyn enjoys arts and crafts, gardening with the girls, and visiting local parks on the weekends. 

Jaclyn graduated with a B.A. in Political Science from The College of New Jersey before moving to Delaware to pursue her J.D. at Widener University- Delaware Law School. She was admitted to the Delaware Bar in 2012, and is barred in U.S. Tax Court and U.S. Immigration Court. She has volunteered with the Office of the Child Advocate, and assists as pro bono counsel in a variety of cases. Jaclyn is a member of Howard High School Academy of Finance Advisory Board. 

When a client calls with an issue, Jaclyn gives her undivided attention, knowing it took courage for them to make the call. Some of the most rewarding parts of Jaclyn’s work are meeting people, learning their stories, and reaching resolutions. She learns a great deal about her clients through the course of thorough and dedicated representation. Much of her practice is comprised of wills and estate planning, property transfers, and “tangled title” ownership issues.

David A. Delgado, DMD

I was born in Mexico, but grew up in Los Angeles. I went to college at Whittier College in Los Angeles, and I completed my doctorate degree from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston. I then went back to CA and concluded a 2-year postdoctoral training in Pediatric Dentistry at UCLA in Westwood and Venice Beach, CA. I then practiced in South Texas on the border of the US and Mexico, becoming a board-certified pediatric dentist and strengthening my dental skills in underserved areas at multiple clinics and surgical settings in neighboring hospitals and surgery centers.

Fate and good luck brought me to Delaware in 2019, where it was a humbling surprise to find out that there are multiple pockets of underserved areas with tremendous need for dental care, including emergent needs. Setting up our first dental clinic in Smyrna, DE as the first pediatric dentist in Smyrna, is a special feeling. We are so excited to bring to Smyrna and the neighboring counties a unique experience at the dentist that we hope will be educational, stress free (Yes!! it is possible!), and hopefully bring healthy & confident smiles now or later. With 10+ years’ experience, things have certainly changed in how care is provided; we have our own philosophy, prevention/treatment of disease, education, and mental health.

I’ve been trained to provide comprehensive dental care to all children, including children with special needs, using traditional behavior management, nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, as well as treatment under general anesthesia. Consultations are available now for sedation options. 

As a father of 3, with 1 on the spectrum, life has certainly thrown a curve ball; one that we are still trying to catch, but it’s all about grit and not giving up and learning from our mistakes. I understand how hard it is to find a trusting dental provider and to juggle with life.

We are very excited to open the doors of our Clinic and welcome everyone this spring, we will see from babies to teens and give our best because “the only way to do great work is to love what you do” and I would love the opportunity to be your little kiddo(s) dentist.
