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.

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.

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!

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.

Ana

Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH)

I love seeing our patients' oral health improve and the confidence it gives each patient knowing they can make a difference in their oral health and overall health. I was a dental assistant from 2006-2008, then attended Cabrillo College and earned an AS in Dental Hygiene in 2010. Fore Dental Care offers thorough, gentle care from the moment a person calls on the phone to make an appointment to their continued visits to the office. Our office is clean and offers state-of-the-art technology and a sterilization center. It is my personal commitment to see that each patient's oral health improves and they understand the connection of oral health to overall health. I am originally from Santa Cruz County and have lived in Nevada County for three months. I love it here! In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family camping, hiking, swimming, and working on the house and in the yard. I have three kids, a boy and two girls, and a Boston Terrier - all have tons of energy! I look forward to meeting you and I am excited for you to be a part of the Fore Dental Care family and experience amazing dental care.

Julie

Dental Hygienist

I work with some of the best people around. Fore Dental Care feels like a home away from home. I began my education at UC Davis and received a degree in English. From there I worked in a busy dental clinic as a receptionist. I have been an orthodontist assistant and finally a patient financial coordinator in a private practice. I loved working with patients one-on-one, so I became a hygienist. The doctors and staff at Fore Dental Care have extended knowledge. I am committed to giving the best care possible and creating an environment where patients feel comfortable asking questions. I am happy to call Nevada County home for a year now! Before that, I lived in a small town in Napa County. I love spending time with my husband and our two dogs. I love to write and hope to one day publish a book. Fore Dental Care staff has the highest of standards and we do everything in our power to make the dental experience comfortable for patients.

Madison

Dental Assistant

I enjoy establishing relationships with patients, and getting to hear their personal stories makes my day! I did ROP in my senior year and graduated in 2016 and have been at Fore Dental Care since then. I think patients will be impressed with the state-of-the-art dental equipment and friendly staff at Fore Dental Care. I am committed to making you feel as comfortable as possible from the moment you walk in. I was born and raised in Cerass Valley. I love being with friends. I enjoy snowboarding and going to the river. Anywhere near the ocean makes me smile. I enjoy traveling and eating my way through! I am a hockey fan. I am grateful to be a part of a team that is always happy, helpful, and very professional!
