This office always makes me feel so comfortable. They treat me like they have known me forever. Like I am family. Dr. has excellent bedside manner and does a great job at explaining what is going on and giving you options instead of just making you do what he wants. I tried out multiple offices when I moved to Washington before I found this one and they will be my forever office!

Dr. Mehr’s practice was a great dental experience. I hadn’t been to any dentist offices in a few years and was scared to go. I was impressed after my first visit from start to finish how great the staff was, how clean the facility was and how the office as a whole goes above and beyond for their patients. Highly recommend this office for any dental needs.

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.

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.

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.

I have been going here for years. The entire staff are great people and take great care to insure the patients comfort and pain free treatment. I have gone to other dental offices do to cheaper insurance. Even though I have cheaper insurance options at my work I choose to pay higher premiums so I can continue to visit this office. The extra cost is worth it for the care I receive here.

"The" best dental experience of our lives! We are a military family, and from our vast travel and experiences in different duty stations, from what was Dr. Pitcher's practice to now Safe Harbor Smiles is undoubtedly "the" most caring, compassionate, and thoughtful group of team members we've ever experienced! I can't say enough about this Dental organization. Thank you!

The entire staff at Safe Harbor Smiles makes a visit to the dentist an enjoyable affair. Everyone from the front desk to the exam chair are friendly, knowledgeable , and really put you at ease. As someone who initially had major anxiety about dental work, I can't sing their praises enough and will recommend them to friends, family, and perfect strangers. No long waits for appointments, no painful procedures, and you leave with a smile (albeit sometimes lopsided) on your face every time. Dr. Mehr and the rest of the team give quality care every single time.

Thank you to all on the staff for Safe Harbor Smiles! Yesterday I had a difficult root canal on my #30 "Monster" molar. But Dr. Mehr and his Dental Assistant, Jocelyn, did a great 👍 job!! Even though a complicated 4 hour case, I'm impressed by how skilled, professional, careful, and still so cordial Dr. Mehr and Jocelyn are. Your good work is very expensive for an old man like me, although you do it so well that it seems to be worth it, I think.. 😃 And everyone on the staff have been so good to all in my family for well over 20 years taking care of our dental needs. Hygienists Angela and Shullon have cleaned my teeth many times through the years...and always do a great 👍 job too!! And, of course Michelle, Linda, and the other office ladies are very helpful scheduling appointments, coordinating insurance and assisting with billings. The McDonald Clan looks forward to many more years of exceptional dental care from Safe Harbor Smiles! Thanks again..

FEEL PART OF OUR DENTAL FAMILY

We want to guide you along your journey to dental success.

Michelle Schmitz

Office Manager

I was born in Roswell, NM and moved to Washington more than 24 years ago. I am married to Gary and have two children, Jared and Carli. I also have a beautiful grand-daughter.

I believe dentistry chose me as I started as an assistant at only 18 years old. I have worked for general dentists, as a surgical assistant, and for an endodontist too. I now work in the front office and enjoy the faster pace

I have loved it ever since as it fits my nurturing personality and allows me to help people. I enjoy being around people and assisting them to overcome common obstacles, whether it is fear, financial, or otherwise.

Away from the office, I enjoy playing with my granddaughter, Ava and like to go camping and hiking. Most of all, I love being around my family and friends.

Linda Johnson

Patient Care Coordinator

I was born in Seattle and absolutely love the Pacific Northwest. I also enjoy being able to help patients smile and feel good about what we did for them.

I chose dentistry because I like being “hands on” and part of a team who helps others be successful. I work hard to earn patient’s trust and will always do my best to make you feel comfortable and relaxed.

I have previously worked as a dental and orthodontics assistant, lab tech, and book keeper. I currently am a Patient Treatment Coordinator at Safe Harbor Smiles so I can assist you with your treatment plan and future appointments.

Outside of the office, I do some landscape designing and can hopefully one day visit Europe.

Shullon Ford

Registered Dental Hygienist

I am married with two adult children. I grew up in the Port Orchard, WA area.

I have over 12 years experience working on the front desk at various practices before getting my AAAS in Dental Hygiene. It has been more than 10 years since I became a hygienist and I love caring for our patients.

Away from Safe Harbor Smiles, I like to work out, go to concerts, and spend time with friends.

Angela Rud

Registered Dental Hygienist

I was born in Port Angeles, WA and graduated from Peninsula High School and Piece College. I am married to Marc and am auntie to two nephews.

I started as a dental assistant right out of high school and then worked as a hygiene assistant. Based on these experiences, I decided to enter dental hygiene school. I have now been a hygienist for over 23 years.

I enjoy being part of a team that is geared toward patient-oriented dentistry. I also like to encourage people to improve their overall health, which is greatly effected by your oral hygiene.

The motivated and talented people in our office always help me to grow and learn. As am curious about all aspects of health – I find this fascinating.

Outside of the office, I enjoy running, hiking, snorkeling, and swimming. I am a keen gardener, which allows me to show my creative side. Also, I like to attend concerts and cheer on the Huskies.
