‘‘We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit."

– Aristotle

I graduated from the University of Washington with Bachelor of Science degrees in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology. During my time as an undergraduate, I was involved in numerous extracurricular activities to satisfy both my philanthropic and academic interests.

After taking a year to continue my research at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Institute where my work focused on the earlier detection of oral cancer through genetic screening, I enrolled in the University of Washington School of Dentistry to complete my Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S) degree.

While in school, I participated in numerous local and international volunteering opportunities as well as several honors courses, which not only strengthened my clinical skills but also my desire to excel in all aspects of this wonderful profession. Having a well-rounded interest and appreciation for all areas of dentistry, I continue to further my expertise by taking part in everything from nationally recognized continuing education courses to locally run study clubs.

Why Dentistry?

While I always knew this wouldn’t be an easy profession, providing a complete stranger with the smile they’ve always wanted in an environment in which they felt comfortable has always been a challenge I felt was worthy of spending a lifetime in pursuing.

I don’t just work on mouths, I work on people, each with their own specific barriers to achieving exceptional oral health. My passion is in helping patients overcome those obstacles by listening to what their goals are, coming up with a clear treatment plan, and then providing them with the high-quality care they deserve. It was this unique opportunity to utilize my problem-solving abilities as well as the technical aptitude I had working with my hands which led me to become the best dentist I could be.

My greatest satisfaction is in becoming the provider you would feel completely confident recommending to your friends and family too. This not only means having the clinical skills to produce exceptional work but also the integrity to always do what is right. The best part of my job is in earning a patient’s trust and then maintaining that special bond through years of exceptional care.

What do you do outside of the office?

As someone fortunate enough to live in the Pacific Northwest I enjoy hiking, kayaking, jogging, and whatever else I can do outdoors (weather permitting).

What was the best day of your life and why?

Although there are many, two that stand out are the day I was accepted into dental school and the day I graduated.

Who is your hero? Why?

William T. G. Morton, the father of modern anesthesia. I could not even imagine being a dentist (or going to the dentist myself) were it not for our ability to get patients profoundly numb during certain procedures.

What flavor ice cream would you be?

There is no particular flavor. Just enjoy your favorite and be careful if you have sensitive teeth!

This is an amazing place to go for your dental needs. The atmosphere is soothing. Staff is very helpful and kind in guiding you with what you need. The procedure I've had was easy to go through and I was grateful for how it turned out.

This office is full of wonderful people. Everybody was so friendly and professional. The dentist is usually my absolute worst nightmare but after talking to the staff I felt completely relaxed and I'll be returning on a more regular basis. If you get stressed about going to the dentist then you should absolutely try this place out. Forgot to mention how clean and nice the office is. Easy 5 stars from me.

I’ve been coming here since it was Dr. Pitcher’s Practice and there’s a reason I keep coming here. Michelle and Linda get me all set with my appointments and chat with me when I arrive for my appointments. It’s like showing up and seeing friends. Once you pass through the door to the clinic floor I hope you get Angela to take care of you. She’s awesome! She remembers every tooth that is cold sensitive or sensitive around the gums. She is careful to never spray cold water or poke these trouble spots. It takes the stress out of the time in the chair. Dr. Mehr is a friendly professional dentist who takes your concerns to heart and investigates. None of those “don’t worry” scenarios that turn into root canals. I like that he remembers little details about our life and always shakes my hand. They’ve got it down here.

Everyone here is SO kind! They also told me more about my teeth than any other dentist I’ve ever seen. I’ve moved around a lot, and Safe Harbor Smiles is the best I’ve ever seen.

we spent a year looking for a dentist that I was comfortable with. Everyone Safe Harbor Smiles were all warm and welcoming. They were friendly and I trust them all with the care we are getting. Unfortunately we are moving out of state... I really wish we could take take Dr. Mehr and his office with us.

I’ve gone here for a long time and always have loved the office staff. They are relatable and friendly. Love chatting with them before I go in. Before they switched dentists it was a bit of a train wreck, honestly. The old dentist used to not be so good at doing fillings for me and also wasn’t very professional about things. The new dentist is extremely professional, very friendly, and does things with precision. Thankful for the new switch! And as always have loved every hygienist I get.
