Meet the Staff

Alison, Registered Dental Assistant (RDA)
I love being part of an outstanding team that provides the best level of care to patients, plus the extra peace of mind that comes with using the latest and most advanced high tech equipment. I take pride in my personal commitment to treat patients with the same care and compassion as if they were my own family. Come visit us! We’ll make you feel welcome and right at home! Myself, I began working in dentistry one year after graduating from high school and qualified by experience to become a licensed assistant. I have lived in Nevada County my whole life and like to spend my time boating on the lake. An accomplishment I am proud of is saving for and purchasing a brand new car on my own at age 17.

Bridget, Office Manager & Patient Care Coordinator
What I like best about what I do at FDC is helping our patients get what they want. You are sure to be impressed by Dr. Stacy Fore and all of our clinicians. At FDC, my personal commitment is to make sure every patient is treated like one of my family and is as educated as much as possible about what we do. Call us today, and we’ll make sure all of your questions are answered. Professionally, I became a dental assistant at age 16 and an RDA in 1992. Specialists I’ve worked for include an orthodontist, implant specialist, periodontist and cosmetic dentist. On a personal note, I grew up in the Bay Area and came to Nevada County first in 1991. I LOVE to cook. In fact, I’ve been a personal chef. I also enjoy fishing, hiking, and Mel Brooks movies.

Katie, Registered Dental Assistant (RDA) & Clinical Lead
The best part about what I do at FDC is meeting new people and developing new relationships. I take pride in working with state-of-the-art technology. I am personally committed to making patients feel comfortable and going the extra mile for their dental health. I have never been happier to work with this group of dental professionals, and I’m sure you will be too! On a personal note, I graduated through ROP in 2008 and have been an RDA for the last 5 years. I’m originally from San Jose and have lived in Grass Valley for 15 years. I love boating, snowshoeing and spending time with family, friends, and my two Queensland Heelers.

Katrina, Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH) & Hygiene Facilitator
I love my patients and co-workers! What you’re sure to love about FDC is the fact that we are thorough and care about providing the best. I am a perfectionist by nature, so I am dedicated to giving excellent care every time. You are important to us at FDC! My professional dental background includes experience in the front office, dental assisting, Delta Dental of California, and hygiene. I live in Citrus Heights, and yes, working here is worth the drive! I have two daughters and one grandson, who keep me busy. I love being a Mom! And, I love to swing dance.

Lisa, Registered Dental Assistant (RDA)
There are many things I like about what I do at FDC. First, I’m grateful for the team I work with. Dr. Fore is very knowledgeable and constantly provides continuing education for staff to stay on the cutting edge. Dr. Fore’s high standard of care is so impressive, along with the unique fact she followed the footsteps of her father, also a dentist in Grass Valley for the past 50+ years. Working at FDC for the last 10 years, I’ve enjoyed building great rapport with our patients. I’m committed to making my patients feel at home and comfortable. I enjoy meeting new patients too and making them feel the same way.

I graduated from Iowa Western Community College Dental Assisting Program in 1986. I became a RDA in California in 2008. I was born and raised in Clarinda, Iowa, spent three years in South Korea, and lived in Lake Wildwood for the past 17 years. I have two daughters, one in college and one in high school. I recently celebrated my 25th wedding anniversary with my husband, Chris. We enjoy boating and hiking.

Mary, Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH)
I enjoy establishing lasting relationships with FDC patients and getting to know them beyond their dental needs. The newest technology and great patient care is impressive here at FDC. I am proud to provide exceptional dental care as I focus on preventing disease to protect teeth, gums, and my patients’ total health. I look forward to meeting you, and I will be happy to help you have an awesome smile. I've been a practicing RDH since May 2015. I was born, raised and currently live in Yuba City. My husband and I and our two rescue dogs love spending our free time with family and friends.

Melody, Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH)
At FDC, we’re able to offer the best services to our patients because of our great team of co-workers and our ultra-modern facility. It’s so gratifying to help you, our patients, attain and maintain optimal dental health. Indeed, it’s extraordinary how Dr. Fore takes the time to really get to know you and has a genuine concern for your overall health. And, I am personally committed to providing you with the highest quality care, always keeping your comfort a priority. I graduated from the Dental Hygiene Program at Diablo Valley College in 2003. I worked in the medical field prior to that, and have never regretted making the career change! Born and raised in San Francisco, I made my way to Grass Valley in the summer of 2013 and am really enjoying being a member of this community. I love spending time with family and friends, and adore my three grandchildren. I also enjoy golf, hiking and exploring this beautiful area with my dog. And, I love to dance! Recently, I took lessons in Latin, ballroom and belly dancing…and love Salsa!

Michelle, Registered Dental Assistant (RDA) & Patient Administrator
What I like best about what I do at FDC is working with patients and staff. At FDC, you are sure to be impressed by the state-of-the-art dental equipment and professional staff. My personal motto about dental health is, "Dentistry is not expensive, neglect is." You will be very well taken care of at FDC. Personally, I graduated in 1983 from the Boise State Dental Assisting Program. I was born in California, grew up in Idaho and lived in Nevada County for the past 20 years. I enjoy boating, camping and hiking.

Tayler, Hygiene Assistant/Sterilization
The best part about what I do at FDC is being able to learn something new every day! You are sure to be impressed by our staff's positive attitude and our commitment to teamwork. My daily goal is to make you feel as comfortable as possible, giving you 100% attention. Yes, you are in good hands at FDC! I graduated from Carrington College in April 2010, and started my dental career in the specialty of orthodontics. Originally from Santa Cruz, I've lived in Grass Valley for about 14 years. My niece and nephew are a big part of my life. I spend as much time with them as I can! I'm proud to be a good caregiver.

Terry, Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH)
It's a pleasure to be a part of Fore Dental Care. My duty as dental hygienist is to be a health care provider and do everything I can for my patients to improve their general health by improving their oral health. I can do this at FDC, because Dr. Fore considers the general health of her patients before recommending any treatment. I enjoy educating my patients about their oral condition, providing optimal treatment, and seeing improvement. I have been practicing dental hygiene for 15 years, most of those years here in Grass Valley and feel it's a privilege serving this community. I attended Cabrillo College in Aptos, California where I received an Associate's Degree in Dental Hygiene, then attended the Arthur Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco and received a license to provide care to patients in long term care. I continue to keep myself educated, and I'm excited to implement what I have learned about poor sleep, sleep apnea, and the effects it has on my patients’ dental condition.

Traci, Patient Administrator Assistant & Marketing
What I like best about FDC is the loyalty & sincere care staff has toward their patients, as well as the patients to FDC. I've never met a more professional group of genuine individuals that truly love what they do! One of many things you're sure to be impressed by at FDC is the advanced diagnostic tools in place to care for and treat patients. The latest technology and continuing education is the name of the game at FDC. Also, the environment at FDC is warm & comfortable. I am personally committed to make FDC patients feel welcome and appreciated, to be a good, supportive resource, and keep all informed of the good news and happenings here at FDC via Facebook and our website. I graduated from CSU, Chico in 1988, majoring in Public Relations and Marketing. I had the pleasure of working for CDA for 5 years, planning two annual state conventions, and did the same in other industries for another 10 years. Just prior to joining FDC, I was a field sales representative for Darby Dental and Henry Schein Dental for 8 years. I moved to Sacramento when I was 12 from Southern California. I've lived, gone to school, and worked in Northern California ever since. My husband & I met in 1999 in Sacramento, married in 2004, then moved to his native home town in Nevada County where we've lived ever since. I've grown to love Nevada City, its culture and all the recreation in the area. We love spending time in the great outdoors, and making memories with family and friends, near and far. I LOVE being an aunt and writing.
