Meet the Team

Shannon

Shannon

Hi. My name is Shannon and I have been working for Dr. Markham since the spring of 2012. 

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 three children. My oldest is 16, my middle child is 6, and my youngest is 2. I am a country music fan.

Hi I'm Michelle and I'm one of the dental assistants.

Me and the other dental assistants help Dr. Markham doctor with all of your appointments. I find this job so rewarding when I see the confidence a great smile can give someone. Working here has been great. Not only is Dr. Markham kind, but she creates a comfortable and enjoyable environment for her employees and patients.

I grew up in Glenside and went to Abington Senior High School. Now I attend Montgomery County Community College working towards their Dental Hygiene program.

In my free time you could find me enjoying sushi, traveling, or reading a book!

 

Victoria

Hi! My name is Victoria and I am one of the dental assistants and will be one of the assistants who work on you at your appointments. I love working in orthodontics because I enjoy seeing the changes in our patient's smiles and watching them grow into young adults during treatment. It is even more rewarding to work for such a caring and friendly doctor like Dr. Markham.

I grew up in Staten Island, New York and moved to Plumsteadville, PA four years ago. I finished by last 2 years of high school at C.B.West, go Bucks! I currently attend Montgomery County Community College with the hopes of enrolling in their Dental Hygiene program.

When I'm not at work or school you can probably find me at one of the many country concerts playing in the area. I am a huge country music fan, some of my favorite artists at the moment are Luke Combs, Jason Aldean and Chris Young.

 

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.

 

Gina

I am one of Dr. Markham’s receptionists. I have been working here since June 2018. I am responsible for receptionist and some financial duties. Since I am x-ray certified I also occasionally take x-rays. I enjoy meeting new patients, interacting with everyone, and see the amazing transformations that Dr. Markham achieves.

I was born and raised in Philadelphia and currently reside in Doylestown. I attended Archbishop Ryan High School and the Delaware Valley Academy of Dental Assistants.

I enjoy spending time with my husband and 2 children. I also enjoy exercising, cooking, and shopping.

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.
