Dental Team

Tina

Registered Dental Hygienist
I have been a hygienist for over 18 years. I have a strong passion for knowledge and personal growth. I am dedicated to keeping up with the most current research and working with the latest technology, offering our patients the best available treatments. I enjoy the relationships that develop between my patients and myself. A lot of my time with each patient is concentrated on dental and oral hygiene education. If a patient knows why it’s important to keep their mouth healthy, and how to do so, they’ll have a great and healthy smile for life.

I have been married to a wonderful husband for over 31 years and we have two amazing daughters: Jessie and Taylor Bea, who keep me extremely busy away from work. I love camping, softball, and football.

Carolyn

Registered Dental Assistant and Treatment Coordinator
I joined the dental field as a lead registered dental assistant in 2010. My background includes cosmetic dentistry, oral surgery and basic family dentistry.

My favorite part of the job includes working with patients to make informed decisions about their dental treatment and ensuring they receive comfortable, comprehensive care at their visits. I am passionate about good dental health and doing whatever is needed to help patients achieve that goal.

At Maidu Dental, I learn something new every day, which makes coming to work fun and exciting. Our team is enthusiastic about the quality of work we deliver and we place great value on delivering topnotch results for our patients. As my home away from home, I enjoy working at a place that priorities care and integrity for each other and for our patients.

I am married and the mother of one lovely daughter and three step kids. My husband owns his own construction business and I have a little Pomeranian who loves joining us in outdoor activities like boating, camping, walking or sitting in the truck while we snowboard.

Melissa

Treatment Coordinator
I joined the Maidu Dental team in 2018, but I’ve been working in the dental field for over two decades. I love working in a dental office because I love seeing the smiles on our patients’ faces when they leave our office feeling good about their health and appearance. We help our patients smile with confidence—and that’s something that makes everyone’s lives a little bit better.

In the office, I help arrange patient care, put together treatment plans, and help patients on the phone and in person. I love working with Dr. Markham because she is an amazing dentist who always strives to make her office feel like a family. Together, we all add something unique to make sure every patient feels comfortable and gets the care they need. We all work together toward the common goal of providing great care for our patients; it feels great being a part of that.

When not in the office, I am always with my family! Counting our dog and two cats, there are eight of us at home: my wonderful husband and myself, my teenaged daughters, and my amazing stepson. We love to go on the road (Disneyland is my favorite!), to the beach, or simply stay home and play board games. Whether we are enjoying a big family meal together on the weekend, watching my teenaged daughters play soccer or perform with a dance team, or traveling together—we love spending time with our kids and pets.

Linda

Patient Coordinator
I have been working in the dental industry since 1982. I began my career in a dental office in the Bay Area where I spent 26 years as a front office lead. I feel blessed to have found such a warm team at Maidu Dental that cares about each other and our patients. I enjoy being a part of a team that values and trusts each other and works together to put the patient and their needs first. One of the perks of the job is interacting with each of the patients and seeing their healthy, happy smiles. Having worked as a front office lead in dental offices for over 35 years, one of my favorite things includes building a strong bond with my team and each of the patients – it’s why I love coming to work every day.

When I’m not at the office, I enjoy spending time with my family. I have a husband of 30+ years, three children, and three grandchildren, who are the loves of my life. My husband and I love to go kayaking and on daily walks together with our yellow lab Cooper – but most of all we love being Grandma and Grandpa.

Teresa

Patient Coordinator
I have been in dentistry all my life, I started my career as a dental assistant in 1974 and I migrated to administrative and management work soon after that. I have been working for Maidu Dental since 2007. While you might not always see my face in the office, I am constantly in the background, on the phone, working with our patients and their dental insurances, helping patients maximizing their dental insurance benefits and helping them choose the right financial option for them. Dr. Markham is not only my respected employer, she has also become my friend. I love working here, I am really proud to be part of a great team and our patients definitely feel that.

I have been married for 34 years to my wonderful husband Jack and we have 2 grown children and 2 grandchildren: Jaden and Nicol. We still reside in Cool, in the same home where we raised our kids. My husband and I love golfing and traveling in our RV every chance we get.

Michelle

Registered Dental Assistant with Extended Functions 2
My favorite part of my job is learning about our patients. I love the conversations I have with our patients during their visits. Whether we’re talking about the local news, an addition to their family, or their most recent vacation, we’re becoming friends. It’s a great feeling to see happy, healthy smiles on my friends’ faces at the end of their visit.

I started my dental career in 2000. Working with Dr. Markham is wonderful; she has created an environment where each patient is treated as family and you can feel that as soon as you walk through the front door. Dr. Markham keeps up with the latest technology and dental procedures which make my job rewarding and exciting.

I live in Auburn with a fantastic husband and two wonderful children. In my spare time, I enjoy trail running and mountain biking.

Annie

Registered Dental Assistant with Extended Functions 2
Every single day, I love coming to work! Not only do I have the opportunity to make my patients smile and have a great day, but our team is fantastic. We have fun, with patients and one another. The energy is positive and the atmosphere productive. I started my career in 2010 and came onboard with Maidu Dental in 2018 as a Registered Dental Assistant with Expanded Functions. My job entails all kinds of patient care, including placing fillings and CEREC crown design.

I take lots of continuing education to stay on top of the latest advancements in dental care. My patients deserve the best!

I have a wonderful little family. My husband is Dane and we have a young son, Hudson. We all enjoy being outdoors, particularly when we go hiking.
Verona

Verona

Registered Dental Assistant
My 25-year dental career began in the Sacramento City College dental program. I have been able to do volunteer work in and out of the country and, now, work with the team at Maidu Dental! I love the caring, collaborative atmosphere that has been created here. The doctors and their team are extremely hard working and knowledgeable. 

As a Registered Dental Assistant, I assist the doctor, take care of the patients, fabricate temporary crowns and design new crowns using our 3D CAD-CAM amazing technology. My favorite part is to help calm nervous and anxious patients by getting to know them and making them feel at ease. One way I do this is by using our high-tech advanced technology to make their treatment easier and more convenient. 

I am originally from Romania and have a very big family that I love to travel with. I love eating and cooking different international cuisines. I also volunteer with my church and other organizations and really love animals and children.

Alexis

Administrative Office Assistant
I started working for Maidu Dental in the fall of 2015. I had never worked in the dental field before but I learn new and interesting things every day! And you better believe I floss more often! I do all kinds of tasks, from putting furniture together to product ordering or even coffee runs. I’m the office go-to girl for special projects that the other team members just don’t have time for!

I love the positive energy the team has! Everyone here is an absolute gem! We have a fantastic bunch of personalities here that just work well together. Our main goal is that our patients have a remarkable experience in our office. Everyone always has a great attitude even if the day is crazy! I can honestly say that I love coming to work every day.

My partner Michael and I, with our son Sven, recently bought a house with great property near the river. We both love paddle boarding, backpacking, and working in the garden. Michael often drags me along to his extreme adventures by promising me culinary deliciousness –my biggest weakness. I love the library, black coffee, and trivia. We have a cute and talkative Burmese cat named Juicy whose favorite food is tortilla chips. Oh, and we just got bees so we are officially beekeepers!
