Dr. Preston C. Carter, DDS
Dr. Preston Carter was born and raised in Texarkana, where he graduated from Arkansas High School. After graduation, Dr. Carter earned a B.S. degree in Agronomy at Louisiana Tech and then went on to get an M.S. Degree in Agronomy at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville. For the next 11 years, Dr. Carter worked as a chemical researcher and technician for two national chemical corporations.

During the Fall of 2007, Dr. Carter enrolled in Dental School at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC) located in Memphis Tennessee. Dr. Carter's education at UTHSC focused on the fields of periodontics, removable/fixed prosthodontics, restorative dentistry, and endodontics. While in school Dr. Carter also received a scholarship for his work in the management of orofacial pain.

After completing his degree in general dentistry at UTHSC, Dr. Carter was eager to give back to the community he grew up in and he moved back to Texarkana. Dr. Carter worked as an associate in private practice and at a children's clinic prior to entering into his own practice at Twice As Nice Dental. Consequently, he enjoys treating patients of all ages and has experience with a variety of procedures ranging from simple fillings to dentures. With his unique background, Dr. Carter knows that life can take many unexpected turns; and it requires hard work, commitment, and more than a little faith to achieve your dreams.

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 from 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 25 years and have two children, Luke and Edie. We are excited to be back in Texarkana where Dr. Carter grew up and to be able to give back to the community here.

Mechelle - Dental Hygienist
I grew up right here in Texarkana and graduated from Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, Texas. I am proud to be practicing dental hygiene for over 30 years. Most of my career has been in the periodontal field which gave me a real passion for the foundation to all dental work which starts with a healthy mouth. I truly feel a sense of accomplishment when I help patients achieve and maintain oral health. Outside of the dental office I can be found connecting with my two adult children and enjoying a strong cup of coffee, reading a good book or telling of my most recent visit with my grandson.

Karen - Dental Assistant
I have been a registered dental assistant for almost 30 years in Texarkana. I have a wonderful husband Rick of almost 30 years. My years in dentistry have been very rewarding to me. I love being part of making a difference in the oral health of each patient and restoring their confidence. Being part of the team at Twice as Nice Dental has been a true blessing. We are truly Twice as Nice!

I was born and raised in Texarkana. I have a wonderful husband Rick of 27 years. We have three children, Adam, Chad, and Ashley. We've been blessed with four beautiful granddaughter's Abby, Bailey, Klara, and Reagan.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time cooking for family and friends, and sharing special times with my beautiful granddaughters.
