Saga and Uptown dentists

Uptown Dentists


Dr Savage Gig Harbor - Oral Surgery Gig HarborAfter many years in the dental field, I still enjoy seeing all the smiles on my patients’ faces when they finally achieve an ideal state of oral health. I consider it an honor that patients come to me for their care, and feel blessed to have the opportunity to send so many wonderful, healthy smiles out into the world.

My practice philosophy has always been to maintain healthy teeth and gums with the most effective and conservative treatments. I have treated many cases, and helped all my patients to achieve their dental goals and keep their natural teeth for a lifetime.

I feel that I bring a unique energy to my work. As a lieutenant commander in the Navy during the years of Desert Shield and Desert Storm, I received the Navy Achievement Medal and an Expert Pistol Medal, and earned the nickname of “The Beast.” I am a “straight shooter”: I aim at the critical issues that my dental patients face.

EDUCATION AND CONTINUING EDUCATION

By regularly participating in continuing education, I am able to stay current on the latest technology and dental treatments. My patients deserve the best, and continuing education allows me to provide my patients with more options and better results.

My continuing education also benefits the next generation of dental professionals. I have taught microbiology laboratory courses for nursing students at Seattle University, and was a clinical affiliate instructor at the University of Washington School of Dentistry. As an internationally known author and lecturer, and CEO of Miles Global, an international dental training and consulting firm, I lecture and publish on women’s health issues, leadership, and business management.

IN THE COMMUNITY

I am truly blessed to live and work in the wonderful community of Gig Harbor. I believe that it is my job to give back to the community. From a professional standpoint, I volunteer for various dental society functions, I've been on and was the board of directors of the Washington Oral Health Foundation, the chair of the steering committee of the Puyallup Partnership for Improved Dental Health. I've served on the editorial board for the WSDA News. Personally, I've volunteered as a zoo dentist at the Point Defiance Zoo and have served on the board of directors. I've also sponsored many Gig Harbor Little League.

OUTSIDE THE OFFICE

My husband, James O’Neal Stephens, is a wonderful electrical engineer, and our daughter Kaitlyn is a professional international soccer goalkeeper. In my free time, I enjoy scuba diving, English horseback riding, gardening, reading, and cheering for Kaitlyn during her games.
