Dr. Mellon is a sweetheart! He has many years of experience, first in the indian clinic in Humboldt County, then many years in private practice. He is easy to talk to, kind to both children and the elderly (me). He came into the office alone one Christmas Holiday to fix my broken tooth. There were no other dentists working that week, and I would have had to wait for days to get my tooth fixed. Another time, he left my side to comfort a child in the next room who had just found out he had to have a tooth extracted and was sobbing. I heard him comfort that child. It is never easy going to a dentist but with Dr. Mellon at least you know you have the best dentist in Humboldt County.
