Former dental assistant sentenced to community service for drug violations

Nicole Dudoit

A former Kailua dental assistant who pleaded no contest to prohibited acts related to controlled substances charges will not serve jail time.

Instead, Nicole “Momi” Dudoit was ordered to complete 150 hours of community service.

If she successfully completes a four-year probationary period, her no-contest plea and charges will be dismissed.

The attorney general says in 2013, Dudoit gave a two-year-old patient medication — Meperidine and Chloral-Hydrate — that left the child unconscious for 12 hours.

She worked for Island Dentistry for Children at the time, the same dental office that another toddler, three-year-old Finley Boyle, visited just two weeks later.

Boyle was supposed to get four root canals, but fell into a coma and never woke up.

Lilly Geyer, the former dentist in that case, was indicted in September on 37 criminal counts, including manslaughter.

She has pleaded not guilty to the charges. Her trial is set for December.
