The Dream Team



Emmy

Director of Operations

Although I was born in Erie, PA, my roots are planted in Fuquay Varina. I have been in dentistry, and with Dr. Khara, for twelve years. Originally, I wanted to be a hygienist, but quickly fell in love with orthodontics. When I am not at work, I head off to my second home and favorite place to be, Oak Island! I enjoy spending countless hours on the water with my husband, our vibrant daughter and our family and friends.


Marley

Office Manager/Financial Coordinator

I am originally from Pinehurst, NC but have settled in Fuquay Varina with my husband. I have been working with Khara Orthodontics for over eight years and am always excited to see the before and after of our patients. My husband and I are new parents to our beautiful daughter, Sage! In my free time I love traveling to the coast and spending time with family and friends! 


Keri

Clinical Supervisor

I was born and raised in Albuquerque, NM so naturally, I am a lover of Mexican food. While making the transition to North Carolina, I fell in love with orthodontics, and have been in the field for Ten years now. When I am not with patients or running behind my toddler, you can find me binge watching some of my favorite old school movies.



Carolyn

I have been an Orthodontic Assistant(Technician) for over 15 years. I absolutely LOVE what I do!! Not to mention I get to do it with an Amazing Team!! Having fun and cutting up with patients, all while watching them get their perfect smiles is priceless. I am originally from Charlotte, NC. I have 3 amazing kiddos ( Caroline, 20, and twin boys Zac and Cameron, 12) and my wonderful husband Ed. We are huge Alabama football fans (ROLL TIDE!!) I enjoy traveling, shopping, more shopping, and spending lots of time with friends and family.


Vivian

Treatment Coordinator

Although originally from Puerto Rico, North Carolina has been home for the last twenty years. Marrying my husband, raising our two beautiful children and then watching our three beautiful grandchildren grow, has been the highlight of my life. Khara Orthodontics has been a very special part of my family for 10+ years now. I love working with such a great doctor and being with staff and patients whom I consider family.


Nivia

Veteran Clinical Assistant ( 10+yrs)

I am originally from San Juan Puerto Rico and while I miss the clear water and amazing food, I absolutely love being a North Carolinian. I have been in orthodontics and with Dr.Tony Khara for 13 years and  I can tell you first hand that the saying is true. Time does fly when you are having fun! I have enjoyed all of the people I have met, smiles I have helped to create and working with such a great team. When I am out of scrubs, I enjoy camping with my husband and our three girls. 


Jacqueline

Clinical Assistant

Born and raised in Angier North Carolina, I have been blessed to raise two beautiful children Kassandra & Octavio. Being a recent graduate of NC Dental U, I had the opportunity to complete my externship with Dr. Khara. I am so thankful for that opportunity because I am now a member of the Khara Orthodontic family.  When I am not at work, I enjoy spending free time traveling with my kids. 


Cassie

Public Relations Coordinator

Originally from South Carolina, but I proudly call North Carolina home. I graduated from NC State and have lived in the area for over 20 years. The Khara crew has become my extended family over the last few years. I've recently switched over to PR and I love seeing patients’ faces out in the community! In my spare time, I love watching my two sons play baseball and going on trips with my family. 


Aaron

Lab Technician

Growing up in a military family, I have had the privilege of living many places.  However, I have always considered North Carolina to be my home.  Here at home, I have been a member of the Army National Guard and am grateful for the many opportunities that it provides to help our citizens in need. While I am relatively new to Khara, I am not new to the dental field or orthodontics.  I have worked as a lab coordinator for several years and enjoy what I do. Outside of making orthodontic appliances, I enjoy turning wood and spending time with my beautiful wife of nine years, our two cats, one dog, fourteen chickens, and my pet snake. 


Hannah

Social Media Manager

Originally from further up north in New Hampshire, but have been a North Carolinian for 20 years! Graduated as a Dental Assistant in the summer of 2021 and am blessed to have jumped right into the perfect job; helping people achieve their newfound confidence with a perfect smile! I started doing social media and event planning with Khara Orthodontics in early 2022 which lets me express my creativity and connect with the community! When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my fiancée Jake and our kitten Delilah. I also love discovering new areas, restaurants, and activities around the Holly Springs area! 



Abigail


Born and raised in Fuquay, I’ve seen it grow and it’s seen me grow. In my free time, I enjoy baking, binge-watching, and traveling. As a former patient of Dr. Khara’s, I can truthfully say the environment is like no other! Being able to be part team is truly a dream! I can’t wait to continue working with everyone in the many years to come. 


Skyler

Born and raised in Sanford, NC, I got the pleasure of being accepted into the Khara Orthodontics family shortly after finishing my dental program. I am married to my high-school sweetheart and together we have our baby Bently and a dog named Oakley. We love going to the beach, riding four-wheelers, and spending quality time with family and friends. 


Taylor

I was born and raised here in North Carolina! Originally from Lillington but now in the Holly springs area. I’ve been a dental assistant for over a year and started at the end of 2021 at Khara Orthodontics! I love being able to dive into a whole new world of dental that I love. When I’m not working, I love to spend time with my dogs Gunner and Diesel and my boyfriend Ethan, and I love going to the beach!
