Office Manager

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.


Administrative Assistant

I supervise the office team and overall workflow by improving office procedures and boosting employee and patient engagement. I started at Markham Orthodontics in 2021, and I enjoy seeing people be happy at their jobs. I love impacting the patients’ smiles through keeping the employees happy.

The doctors at Markham Orthodontics are so genuine and down to earth with the work they do. Everyone here is so excited to help our patients, and you won’t find the same level of care anywhere else!

I love spending time with my wife and kids! We like going to the zoo, the aquarium, and our random road trips, but our favorite trips are casual Starbucks and Target runs.


Treatment Coordinator

My name is Angelika, but you can call me Hely. I am a scheduling coordinator training to become a treatment coordinator. I currently book patients and invite them in to our office as they come to their monthly appointments. I began working here in 2020 and this has been my very first orthodontic opportunity and I am loving it! I love working with our doctors and team because everyone is always so silly & inviting. Little things like saying “good morning” every morning, we always do it! I love to spend my free time with my close-knit & crazy family. I also love every chance I get to have my toes in the sand at the beach!


Treatment Coordinator

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!


Scheduling Coordinator

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.


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!


Registered Dental Assistant

My journey in the dental field started in 2015. I am a Registered Dental Assistant, and currently I am working on my Orthodontic Assistant Permit. love working with my team because WE ROCK!

My job is to maintain a clean, sterile, and cheerful environment where our patients feel comfortable. And my favorite thing at work is to educate our patients on proper oral hygiene.

When I’m not working, I love spending time with my four boys,: my husband (Dean), my son (Pablo) and my two dogs (Chapo, and Bluey). We all go on bike rides on trails, on road trips to the beach and car show cruises with our Classic cars.


Patient Coordinator

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 of 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.
