April Kirk

Office Manager

Hello, my name is April Kirk and I am thrilled to be a part of Dr. Gina Mancini’s team!

I have come to A Beautiful Smile after working many years in the finance industry.  I hope to use my experience to help further grow this amazing practice.  I earned my degree in Criminal Justice from Chaminade University in Honolulu, Hawaii.

I was born in Tennessee but have lived in Jacksonville for almost 20 years.  While Jacksonville was my home for several years, I have recently moved back with my husband and family after living in California for three years and Hawaii for three years. I absolutely love the big city, but I could not imagine not living here on the beautiful Crystal Coast!

My husband and I have six amazing children, two girls and four boys.  Our lives are extremely busy keeping track of their schedules. When I get free time, I enjoy running, yoga, going to the beach, and traveling.

I was born and raised right here in Onslow County. My dad was a Marine and retired after serving 26 years as a helicopter pilot. I grew up a country girl and graduated from Richlands High School in 1999. I went on to obtain my dental hygiene degree from Coastal Carolina Community College and graduated in 2001. I have been working locally ever since. I married my high school sweetheart in 2001 and God blessed us with our son in 2009. I enjoy spending time with my family in the outdoors hunting and fishing. I love the career I have chosen and enjoy serving my local community and church. I joined Dr. Mancini’s team in 2011 and couldn’t ask for a better place to work!

Heather Wynn

Dental Assistant

I have been working for Dr. Gina Mancini for 10 years. I moved to North Carolina in June of 2004. I received my education in San Diego, California and became a Certified Dental Assistant in June 2003. I live in Jacksonville and have a daughter, Taylor. I enjoy working in the yard, spending time with my friends and family, reading and going to the movies.

I love being a Dental Assistant and working with Dr. Mancini. In the past, I was a preschool teacher and worked with the after school programs at the YMCA. For the last couple of years, I have been part of the Tabitha the Tooth productions that we perform at local elementary schools for Dental Health Awareness month. My role in the play has been the carrot character. It has been so much fun to be a part of this production and this dental practice.
