We recognize that all of our patients are unique and deserve to receive orthodontic care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented orthodontic team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding orthodontic experience every time you visit our practice. We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.
I love seeing our patients smile. Watching each person’s excitement to start their orthodontic journey and then witnessing that excitement grow as they near completion, is incredible. Of course, the wonderful smiles at the end are best of all.
I help patients with scheduling appointments, handling insurance and billing matters and developing financial contracts with our patients and parents.
When I’m not in the office, I enjoy running, reading and spending time with family and friends. I’m a major fan of the 49ers and Sacramento Kings and I am also a big time foodie.
I have been working closely with patients to help them get the dental care they need for four years. The most fulfilling part of my job is seeing patients gain confidence after their treatment is complete!
My role as the Treatment Coordinator is to listen to the patients’ main concerns, offer different braces options, and make personalized financial plans for each patient. My favorite thing about working at Markham Orthodontics is the staff loves what they do and who they do it for—the patients.
When I’m not working, I enjoy learning hip-hop choreography, dancing, and eating spicy chips!
As a patient coordinator, I am responsible for looking after patients throughout their appointments. This includes welcoming new and returning patients, coordinating observation patients, and scheduling their next visit. I enjoy helping our patients get the attention they need, so they can relax and enjoy their treatment with the Markham team.
My favorite part of the job is getting to know our patients as people and forming a connection that makes them feel at home with our staff. The best part is seeing the joy and happiness our patients get from successful orthodontic treatment. Their smiles light up my life!
My dental education started with the Placer County Office of Education, Career Technical Education (PCOE-CTE) and I’ve been working with the amazing Markham Orthodontics team since June 2016. I feel lucky to be a part of an office that thrives on providing exceptional clinical care and is led by such a kind and patient doctor. When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, being outdoors, doing yoga, and reading books about the moon.
My journey in the dental field started back in 2019. I am a 22-year-old Hmong American who went to John F. Kennedy High School in Sacramento where I lived all my life.
The best part of my job is being able to help patients as best as I can; and although I just started this year at Markham Orthodontics, the team and Dr. Markham welcomed me with warm and open arms. I cannot wait for more to come.
Some things I like to do are taking small vacations when I can be with friends and family. I also enjoy sleeping in as much as I can. I love playing with makeup and once thought about pursuing a cosmetic (make-up artist) career.
My job allows me to interact with all the patients and seeing the smile on their faces when they finish their treatment is the best part. I also answer phones and schedule future appointments.
I feel very welcome at Markham Orthodontics, and I am very proud to be a part of this amazing team!
Furthermore, I am attending American River College to be a Marine Biologist specializing in sharks! I grew up in Sacramento but have always had a passion for the ocean and marine life. My hobbies include hiking, fishing, and being by the water any chance I get. I am currently working on gaining experience working with local wildlife.
As a Marketing Coordinator, I get to create content for the office’s social media platforms and organize marketing campaigns and events for the team and patients.
I started working in the dental field in 2018, and I have a background as a scheduling coordinator and treatment coordinator.
The favorite part of my job here at Markham Orthodontics is being around my coworkers. Everyone supports each other and is open-minded. Plus, my job is fun, and I get to be creative.
When I’m not working, I enjoy taking on adventures with my adorable French bulldog named Rocko, whether that is exploring downtown Sacramento, hiking in Auburn or road tripping to San Diego. Rocko goes with me everywhere. And, if I am not outdoors already, I like to go shopping or try out new places to eat.
Registered Dental Assistant and Orthodontic Assistant
As a Registered Dental Assistant and Orthodontic Assistant, my job is to provide orthodontic care through laboratory procedures, clerical work, and treatment procedures. I began working in the dental field in 1996, and I have been working with Dr. Markham since 2002.
Dr. Markham and his team have created an open and safe environment for both the patients and the team. It makes coming to work every day so easy! But, the best part of my job by far is seeing patients achieve their new smiles.
My free time is spent with my daughter, family, and friends. I also enjoy traveling when I can and engaging in my culture. A fun fact about me is that I danced Folklorico for 30 years!
Registered Dental Assistant
My job as an Orthodontic Assistant is to walk with patients through every step of their orthodontic journey. I love watching our patients gain the beautiful smiles they have always dreamed of. It’s so rewarding to see someone who was once insecure about their teeth now want to show them off! Being a part of that process is the best part of my job.
I began working as a registered dental assistant in 2017. What I love about our office is that every team member works together to create a pleasant atmosphere for ourselves and our patients. As a part of this incredible team, I am constantly learning new techniques and improving my skills.
When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my extended family and my best friend/fur baby, Snowball!
As an Orthodontic Assistant, I enjoy meeting new patients and watching them grow and succeed!
Our staff is made up of some of the most compassionate and fun people I’ve ever met. We all appreciate, respect, and have a great time with our patients. By helping one another, we create an atmosphere of unity, which makes the orthodontic visits fun, positive, and rewarding for our patients.
I come from a family of 6. My mom and dad have always pushed me to be the best version of myself and to work hard. I am from Jalisco, and I love to go visit Mexico!
I love my job as I get to welcome each new patient to their orthodontic journey. My goal is to be the best part of their day. I also enjoy seeing how happy patients are with their smiles at the end of the treatment.
A hobby I picked up during quarantine was working out at home. It allowed me to spend time with my family and friends, I am the youngest of 4 sisters.
I love to travel and I hope one day to travel to Egypt and Tokyo.
