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.

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.

 

Alexa

Hello, my name is Alexa and I am a dental assistant at Dr. Markham’s office. I enjoy working in orthodontics because it is a hands on position and I enjoy working with kids. In the past, I was a teacher at a daycare for 2 years.

I grew up in Bucks County and have lived in Bedminster almost my whole life, except for the 3 years I lived in Howard County Maryland for my father’s job. I currently live in Bedminster with my parents, brother, and our two dogs.

I graduated from Pennridge High School and I attended Bucks County Community College for dental assisting.

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, friends and boyfriend. I also enjoy going to the gym. I am a huge Disney World fan and will take a trip there any chance I can get.

 

Nick

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. We have a one year old son named Clark. 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 with a close friend and we write original material. I also enjoy spending time with my wife, son, 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.

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

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 Elkins Park with my cat, Denali. I am a part-time student and I like to travel, and enjoy reading and the outdoors.
