Jill Markos DDS
Dr. Markos has over 30 years of experience providing dental care. She began her career as a hygienist in Tampa, Florida, and 2 years later moved to New York City. For the next 8 years, she worked as a hygienist, while completing her undergraduate degree at Hunter College in psychology, and then continued on to Columbia University Dental School. After graduation, she began building a practice on the upper east side of Manhattan working as a general dentist, specializing in Porcelain Laminate Veneers (PLVs) and crown and bridge.
After getting married she and her husband moved to Syracuse, New York where she worked for an HMO (Health Maintenance Organization) in a group of eight dentists. It was during this time that she began to clearly articulate what kind of dentist she would be and the kind of practice she wanted to develop. In 1995 she moved to Vancouver and purchased Dr. Theodore Caviness' practice. In 2002, the practice relocated to the current location in the Minnehaha neighborhood.
Dr. Markos enjoys kayaking, taking her dog, Riley, on walks, hiking, playing tennis and traveling.
Before becoming a hygienist, Lisa was a phlebotomist working in kidney dialysis. Wanting a change, she went back to Clark College to become a hygienist and found her niche. She combines energy, passion, intellect and skill with each patient to help them achieve and maintain the best oral health.
She has been providing quality hygiene care for ten years
Reba grew up west of Palm Springs on an Air Force military base. Having lived in Los Angeles and the Bay Area, she moved to Portland for a change. Her diverse background from interior design to mortgages has given her many valuable skills and abilities she brings with her into the practice. Along with her patience, and strong work ethic, she is a great asset to our patients in the help she is able to provide them.
Even though her early years growing up were in Montana she has been living in Clark County since her high school days. She has a young daughter and lives with her husband on enough land for her horses. Most every weekend you will find her riding with friends. She brings enthusiasm and an infectious laugh to our office.
