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.
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.
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!

Before joining our team, Kim was a patient of ours! She loved the atmosphere and the people who worked here. So when she decided to go back to work, she felt this would be a great fit and hasn’t been disappointed.
She loves our team and meeting new patients every day. Her motivating, friendly, and willing-to-help attitude makes everyone feel at ease and cared for.
Outside of work, Kim enjoys spending quality time with her family, reading, watching her son play baseball, being outdoors, and simply enjoying life with her loved ones. One day, Kim plans to check off going to Santorini, Greece off her bucket list.

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 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.
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.
