The Dream Team


Emmy White

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 Mangum

Office Manager

I am originally from Pinehurst, NC but have settled in Fuquay Varina with my husband. I have been working with Khara Orthodontics for six years and am always excited to see the before and after of our patients. My husband and I are proud fur parents to our dalmatian, Heartford and terrier, Ricky! In my free time I love traveling to the coast and spending time with family and friends! 


Keri Roberts

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.



Cassie Tyler

Treatment 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. I am new to the dental field and loving it! The Khara crew has quickly become my extended family. The atmosphere in this office is amazing and unlike anything I've ever experienced! In my spare time I love watching my two sons play baseball and going on trips with my family. 


Vivian Wood

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 eleven years now. I love working with such a great doctor and being with staff and patients whom I consider family.


Liz Swales

Financial Coordinator

I am originally from Massachusetts and although it will always be my home, I love the State of North Carolina. I have raised my twin boys and my fur baby, Sadie here. I enjoy boating and traveling with my husband of 28 years. Khara Orthodontics has been my extended family now for over 10 years and there's no place I would rather be!


Jessica Martinez

Scheduling Coordinator

I am originally from sunny California but am falling more in love with North Carolina everyday! I have been in Holly Springs and with Dr. Khara for a  few years now and could not have found a better place to live and work. When I am outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my hubby Seth, my daughter Avery and two fur babies Ryla and Cash. 


Pam Rasey

Scheduling Coordinator

I was raised in Texas and am happy to be here in North Carolina with my husband of 25 years and two daughters.  I worked in accounting for over 30 years and have been so blessed to be able to work here in Dr. Kharas office as the Scheduling Coordinator.  The patients and there families all feel like family to me and I work with so many special people who love being here as much as I do. I can say " I love my job!"

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.

In my quest to be an Orthodontist, I am so thankful for the opportunity to gain experience with an awesome doctor and fantastic co-workers.


Jaimie Bryant

Clinical Assistant

As a 15-year resident of Holly Springs, I have had the privilege of forming many bonds with the locals.  I have over 20 years of experience in customer service and five years in office management.  I have two daughters, Audrey and Chloe; two pups, Dusty and Dottie; and a handsome man by my side, Ben.  If not with them, I am likely to be found searching out new hobbies, as I enjoy keeping my self busy. 


Aaron Branch

Lab Coordinator

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. 


Jacqueline Robles

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.
