Liz, practice administrator for 16 years and currently manages our Cary and Fuquay branch

Director of Operations

Liz has been in the dental industry ever since she had an opportunity to work with her family dentist part-time in high school. She joined the SmileMann team in 2005 and currently manages the Cary and Fuquay-Varina offices.

Liz is also Co-President of the Triangle Area Chapter of the American Association of Dental Office Management (AADOM).

In her spare time, Liz enjoys shopping and spending time with her grandchildren.


Marketing Director

April Wood is no stranger to the Triangle Area as she is a third-generation family member from her hometown of Garner, NC.

After graduating from Garner Senior High School, she attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and earned a BA in Secondary Education. April taught ninth grade Social Studies before working in the family residential trash business while staying at home with her young sons.

When her boys graduated and “spread their wings,” April joined the Garner Chamber of Commerce, eventually serving as Vice President focusing on membership services, events, and marketing. While in this position, she met Sally from Dr. Mann’s office and was instantly drawn to the team’s love for “community” and started working at the office.

With her combined love of teaching, business, and helping others, working at Charles Ashley Mann, DDS & Associates was a natural fit. April loves to engage with our patients and connect with the community. She helps everyone to feel comfortable in our office and enjoy their visit.

Outside of the office, April loves spending time with her sons, Austin and Colton. She also enjoys sports, dancing, shopping, and wine-tasting with friends.

Maranda, a patient care coordinator at our Cary branch

Patient Care Coordinator

Maranda was born and raised in Apex and currently resides in Holly Springs. She has one son and four dogs, who are her world!

She chose dentistry because she wanted to positively influence people’s lives. She loves building relationships with patients and helping them see they’re part of our dental family.

Nothing makes her feel better than seeing patients leave with a beaming smile and more confidence than they came in with.

Her open-mindedness and willingness to learn are embodied in her favorite quote from C.S Lewis:

“You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.”

Outside of work, Maranda loves watching sunsets on the beach, going on adventures with her son, playing baseball, and riding bikes around the neighborhood. One way, she’d like to go skydiving!

Felicia, dental hygienist in our dental office for almost 6 years.

Dental Hygienist

Felicia was born and raised in North Carolina. In 2005, she graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene. Felicia married her college sweetheart, Johnathan, shortly after graduating, and they currently live in Cary, North Carolina. 

She joined the SmileMann team in 2015. Her favorite part of her job is educating her patients about their oral health and playing an integral role in helping them attain their healthiest smile possible. 

In her spare time, Felicia loves spending time with her family, reading, exercising, and crafting.

Erin, dental hygienist in our dental office for almost 9 years.

Dental Hygienist

Erin always knew she wanted to work in the healthcare field because she enjoys the sciences behind the industry and working with people. After meeting someone in the Dental Hygiene program, she decided to apply. 

Erin has been with the SmileMann team since 2012 and met her husband while working with our practice! In 2014, one of our patients set Erin up on a blind date with Tim, and they have been together ever since.

Leigh, dental hygienist who is eager in educating patients on the importance of oral health.

Dental Hygienist

Leigh has always known that she had an interest in teeth.  When she was in the 6th grade, her best friend got braces, and all she wanted to do was brush her friend’s teeth for her! 

Leigh worked as a Dental Assistant for 11 years and loved the dental field so much that she decided to further her education and go into dental hygiene. She joined the SmileMann team in 2020 after graduating with a Dental Hygiene degree from Wake Technical Community College. 

Her favorite part about her job is educating patients about the importance of their oral health and seeing them get excited about improving their smiles. In her spare time, Leigh enjoys spending time with her family and friends, crafting, eating tacos, and visiting the N.C. mountains and coast.

Carmen, dental assistant at our Cary branch

Dental Assistant

Carmen is our Dental Assistant at the practice and has been with the SmileMann team since 2005. She started her career in dentistry in 2001 when she attended the American Red Cross Dental Assistant Program at the Charleston Air Force Base Dental Clinic. 

Her favorite thing about her job is getting to know her patients. Carmen is a social butterfly and thrives off of her relationships with her patients.

In her spare time, Carmen enjoys boating with her husband, spending time with her two children. She also enjoys gardening, going to concerts, refurbishing old furniture, yoga, walking, shopping, hanging with her two dogs, and eating good food.


Dental Assistant

Kailey joined the SmileMann team in 2020 as a Dental Assistant. Kailey loves being able to help others feel confident with their smile through dentistry. When she’s not working, Kailey enjoys working out, cooking, and watching movies.

Blair, our dental assistant since 2020 and is always passionate in helping others.

Dental Assistant

Blair always knew she wanted to help others, and dentistry felt like the best way to do so! She has been assisting others in becoming more confident with their smile since 2016 and joined the SmileMann team in September 2020.

In her spare time, Blair enjoys spending time with her family, especially at the lake. Being a wife and mom is by far her favorite thing in the world.

‘‘Great experience. Everyone is so professional and friendly at the same time. I came in a nervous wreck but was walked through every phase with such care and thoughtfulness that my anxiety was eased quickly. This office is wonderful! ’’
