About Maidu Dental

About us

We understand that it is hard to find a dentist you can trust, and we work hard every day to provide our patients with dental care they can count on for years to come!  We primarily serve the Auburn area, and we want to make your dental experience easy, affordable, and comfortable. We accept multiple dental insurance plans, have flexible hours, and have the expertise of general dentist Dr. Luminita Markham and orthodontist Dr. David Markham. The unique combined skill set of our doctors is great for our patients because most of the care that we provide is directly with…us – in our office.  Two of our most asked-about procedures are bone grafts after extractions in preparation for dental implants, and the oral conscious sedation that we provide for our anxious patients.

We recognize that all of our patients are unique and deserve to receive dental care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented dental team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding dental experience every time you visit our practice.
