Ninette has been involved in the the dental industry for almost 25 years, including, clinical, administrative, private, corporate and educational settings. Ninette started her career in dentistry around 1989 and was accepted into the first ROP-Dental Assisting Program in Northern California.
Ninette did clinical work for about six years in California before deciding to move into the corporate/management side of the dental industry. Ninette then relocated to Oregon and accepted a training position at one of the largest dental groups in the northwest, with 70 offices throughout Oregon, Washington and Idaho.
Ninette also developed a great passion for volunteering and community involvement. Ninette maintained the fluoride program at her son's elementary school for over 5 years, has served with the Give Kids a Smile Portland committee for over 10 years, has served on elected boards and committees, and many other volunteer positions to improve the dental community and profession.
On her time off she enjoys spending quality time, exploring Oregon and going to the coast, with both her husband and 24 year-old son.
Alyssa Goldsmith, EFDA, Lead Dental Assistant
Alyssa grew up in a small town in the Columbia River Gorge, where she and her husband still reside raising their six children who are fifth generation residents. Alyssa enjoys knitting, baking, fairytales and spending time with family. Her passion for caring for people and especially nurturing the development of young people makes FCCDC the perfect fit.
“Providing necessary healthcare in a positive and compassionate environment, especially focusing on a group of children who are at higher risk, is very satisfying work and I am honored to be a part of making Creston’s mission a reality.”
