Shannon

Hi. My name is Shannon and I have been working for Dr. Markham since the spring of 2012. I am currently in orthodontic treatment myself and I am wearing Invisalign aligners in this photo of me.

I went to the Delaware Valley Academy of Medical and Dental Assistants. I like orthodontics because it is more hands on than general dentistry. While completing my internship after dental assistant school, I found myself wanting to do more direct patient care. I also love seeing the progress and then seeing the final result of a great smile. I enjoy working with kids, as well. I used to work in a day care and was also a nanny. So I'm getting the best of both worlds with my position at this office.

I really enjoy working with Dr. Markham. She is very sweet and kind hearted. I live in Northeast Philadelphia and I don't mind driving such a distance so I can work in a great family atmosphere.

In my free time I love spending time with my family. I have two children. My oldest is 12 and my youngest is 2. I just recently bought a house. It has made me enjoy doing yard work and little projects around the house. My family and I love creating a wonderful home. I am a country music fan.

Hello, my name is Mary and I am an orthodontic assistant for Dr. Markham. I enjoy being part of a friendly, relaxed, professional atmosphere where I get to meet different people. The variety of job responsibilities and being hands on is very rewarding. Plus, I love seeing the patients progress to a beautiful smile.

I grew up in Glenside and now live in Warminster with my husband Pete and three children Kayla, Cole and Annalisa.

I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. We like being outdoors, going to the park, baseball games, hockey games and Nascar races. In the evenings I like to relax with a family game, movie or just reading with the kids.

I have known Dr. Markham's husband Rick since I was two years old. My mother was his cub scout leader and he is friends with my oldest brother.

Brooke

Brooke

Hello my name is Brooke! I am one of Dr. Markham's Orthodontic assistants. I have been working for her since the Fall of 2014, but have known the office for quite some time as they created my smile to perfection!

I was born and raised in the Bucks County area except for five years of my life when I lived in Ocean City, Maryland with my mom and brother. I graduated from Central Bucks South and also Middle Bucks Institute of Technology where I studied dental assisting and was certified by the state for my X-Ray certification.

I love Orthodontics. It has been my calling since I sat in Dr. Markham's chair in 6th grade to get my braces. I looked up to Dr. Markham and her team as role models, and always wanted to succeed in this area. It was so fascinating and very interesting watching what they did. Especially my personal experience at Dr. Markham's office. I love being able to be a part of giving the same experience to other patients and am honored to be doing orthodontics as part of Dr. Markham's team because they inspired me.

I like going to the gym, painting, shopping and spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy going to the beach every opportunity I get any time of the year!

Nick

Hello, my name is Nick, one of the dental assistants here in Dr. Markham's office. Working for Dr. Markham is a very rewarding experience; from seeing our patients at the start of their treatment to seeing them progress to the final outcome is incredible. I love being a part of that venture!

I was raised in Northeast Philadelphia. My wife and I now live in Bensalem in the Neshaminy Valley. I graduated from Temple University with a B.A. in Art History, but realized too late that it wasn't something I truly wanted to do. So, I went back to school at Bucks County Community College and received my certification for dental assisting.

In my free time, I play guitar for a cover band called the Velvet Tones which plays in the Tri-State area. You can find us on Facebook with a schedule of upcoming shows. I also enjoy spending time with my wife, family and friends, playing video games and reading comics...I'm a huge Superman fan so make sure to wear those Superman shirts!

Gillon

Gillon

My name is Gillon and I'm a dental assistant here at Dr. Markham's office. I like working in orthodontics because you learn something new everyday. I enjoy working with awesome people and treating awesome patients as well! Working in this office is hands on and I like that a lot.

I live in Abington, right down the road from the Markham Family. I am a graduate of Abington Senior High and I also attended Shippensburg University, but decided to take some time off.

When I'm not in the office I like to hang out with my family and friends, shop, and read. Lastly, my dad is a mediocre poker player - this brings shame to the whole family.

Missy

Hi. I'm the Receptionist for Dr. Markham's office. I also handle insurance and various other finance-related issues.

My favorite thing about working here is meeting patients and seeing the amazing results after treatment.

I am a native of the Baltimore/Washington, D.C., area and currently live in Montgomeryville with my husband, 2 children, our dog, cat and 3 fish.

In my free time, I enjoy running, reading, volunteering at Montgomery Elementary School, and watching my kids play sports.

Rick

Rick

Hi. I am the Office Manager for Dr. Markham. I am also Dr. Markham's husband. We have two children, Rebecca and Benjamin. Dr. Markham and I met while at Villanova University.

Dr. Markham opened up her office in 2000 and she "volunteered" me to assist her with the day-to-day operations. Prior to working for Dr. Markham I was the Human Resources Manager for an adult literacy non-profit. I have degrees from Villanova and Temple Universities.

I love spending time with my kids and we all enjoy going down the shore frequently each summer. I am a big fan of Villanova basketball and spend many of my winter evenings going to games.

I am a native of Glenside. Dr. Markham and I live in Abington. We have a victorian era farmhouse that requires a good deal of my attention.

Trish

Trish

If you have a Saturday appointment, you will meet me, Trish. I am Dr. Markham's Saturday receptionist. My full-time job is an Admissions Counselor for Manor College. I had previously worked as a receptionist in the dental clinic at Manor College and that is where I met Dr. Markham. You won't find a nicer person than Dr. Markham.

One of the best things about working in orthodontics is getting to know the patients and parents, and seeing how much patients change during treatment.

I am a native of Fox Chase Manor and currently live in Rockledge with my cat, Denali. I am a part-time student and I like to travel, and enjoy reading and the outdoors.
