Sally, our practice administrator for almost 12 years.
Sally

Practice Administrator

Sally was born and raised in the Midwest. She moved to NC in 1999 for a career opportunity in the retail industry. Through that career, she became connected with Dr. Mann and joined the SmileMann team in 2009.

When away from the office, Sally can be found watching baseball, football, or a cheer event by one of her husband’s teenagers. As a competitive family, Sally and her family enjoy playing card games, corn hole, or anything that results in a win/loss outcome.

She and her husband, Carey, enjoy taking his kids to professional football, baseball, and basketball games at different venues. Sally is also a very proud parent to their Cavapoo, Russell (named after Russell Wilson).

Meet April our marketing director
April

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.

BillieSue, our patient care coordinator since 2018
BillieSue

Patient Care Coordinator

BillieSue started working for an orthodontic office in 2010 as a treatment coordinator and continued to work in dentistry for the last eleven years. Seeing patients gain confidence with a healthy smile is very rewarding and fulfilling to her.

BillieSue married her high school sweetheart, Derek, and her family is her greatest pride and joy. One of the biggest highlights in her life is getting to play an active role in her grandson’s life. During the summer BillieSue can often be found in the pool and getting lost in a good book.
Nikki, our patient care coordinator for almost 6 years.
Nikki

Patient Care Coordinator

Nikki is a North Carolina native. She graduated from East Carolina University with a BA in Communications, concentrating in Public Relations. She is married with three kids, and a springer doodle named Molly.

Nikki began working with the SmileMann team in 2015. She was drawn to dentistry by her friend Carmen, who has also worked with Dr. Mann for many years. Carmen spoke of a wonderful opportunity working with a fantastic team, and the rest is history!

When she’s not working, Nikki enjoys going to the beach, working out, and spending time with her family and friends.

Meet Brittany our dental hygienist
Brittany

Dental Hygienist

Brittany was born and raised in Johnston County (JOCO!), where she graduated from Fayetteville Technical Community College. She joined our team in 2017 as a registered dental hygienist. 

Brittany loves that in dentistry we can make smiles happen all day long. Since smiling is so contagious, she feels that we make the world a brighter place if we continue to create beautiful smiles every day. 

She has two active boys, Bryson and Atwood, who keep her and her husband, David, very busy! Brittany also enjoys watching reality TV and loves a good DIY project or anything that can put her creativity to work.

Meet Karen our dental hygienist
Karen

Dental Hygienist

Karen currently lives in Dunn and has a daughter named Averi and a spoiled rotten Maltipoo named Henry.

She originally got into dentistry because her childhood dentist (who she loved and respected) suggested dental hygiene as a career.

Since becoming a dental hygienist, Karen has found the most joy from meeting new people and helping their smiles sparkle.

In her spare time, Karen enjoys watching her daughter play softball on her school team and her travel-ball team. She also loves going to the beach!

Meet Melanie our dental assistant
Melanie

Dental Assistant

Melanie was born in Mississippi and was raised in a military family – moving every few years. She has a younger sister who lives locally, and her mothers live in Virginia.

Melanie loved her dental checkups as a child, so she decided to pursue a career as a dental assistant.

Now, she enjoys caring for patients, especially helping those with anxiety. Seeing your transformation from dental visits being something to be feared to loving the time to catch up with our team is something she truly values.

Outside the office, Melanie has an ever-growing zoo! She spends time tending to her parrots and dogs. She likes to read and take trips to (you guessed it!) the zoo when she has some free time.

Jessica, our dental assistant
Jessica

Dental Assistant

Jessica joined the SmileMann team in 2018 after completing the Dental Assistant program at Wake Technical Community College. 

She enjoys comforting patients and watching them leave with a confident smile. In her spare time, Jessica also enjoys working out and spending time with her family and friends.

‘‘I can say that I actually look forward to my dental visits at this practice. The entire team has a positive vibe, great attitude and helpful spirit that is genuine. Their expertise, state of the art treatment protocols and excellent bedside manner are why I’ll continue to choose their practice for as long as I’m living in the triangle area.’’
