Our Team


Manjula - Office Manager
As the office manager for Twice as Nice Dental I am responsible for making sure that everything runs smoothly so that Dr. Carter and our assistants can provide quality care for our patients. My main duties include scheduling patients, managing insurance billing and accounts, and making sure we do not run out of basic supplies like toilet paper! It is a challenging job but I enjoy the challenge. I enjoy being able to take care of our patients and helping them with their questions. I have the privilege of working with a truly talented and dedicated team, who make my job fun even on a tough day!

My background is in horticulture. Prior to working at Twice as Nice dental I worked for the University of Arkansas for many years as a research scientist. Following that I worked for the Dixon Gallery and Gardens in Memphis, TN, as their greenhouse manager. Managing a dental office is not that different to managing a greenhouse except that you don't get so dirty! I love keeping things organized.

Dr. Carter and I have been married for almost 20 years and have two children, Luke (16) and Edie (11). We are excited to be back in Texarkana where Dr. Carter grew up, and to be able to give back to the community here.


Charlotte - Dental Hygienist
I have been practicing dental hygiene for over ten years. I feel blessed to work with a team of such dedicated individuals. I love being able to give my patients individual attention and I do my best to provide the best dental care. As a team we are firm believers that preventive care is the key to a healthy, beautiful smile.

When I'm not taking care of my wonderful patients, you can most likely find me enjoying time with family and friends.


Jenny - Dental Assistant
I assist Dr. Carter during procedures, take x-rays, pour impressions, keep supplies ordered, keep the office clean and assist anyone else who needs help! I have been a dental assistant for 36 years and absolutely love it! My favorite part of my job is meeting and getting to know our patients.

All of our staff here at Twice as Nice Dental love to have fun and we truly care about each other, our patients and our duties as your dental office. Everyone should have happy teeth!

I grew up in Amarillo, Texas, where I met by husband Allan. We are high school sweethearts. This May we will have our 32 year anniversary! We have lived in Texarkana for nearly 22 years. We have two beautiful daughters, Elizabeth and Michelle. I am blessed to have two grandchildren- Brooklyn (8) and Mason (3). I am "grammie". When I get a chance, I love to shop -my husband thinks I'm addicted LOL! I also like to go to water parks and amusement parks, and go boating on the lake.
