Staff Directory


Beth Kilbourne- Front Office Reception, Scheduling

I began working for Resler Orthodontics in 1985 and was involved in the field of general dentistry three years prior to that. My duties include answering the phones, scheduling, recalls, ordering supplies, mailings, and general office duties. Orthodontics is not a life-saving experience, but rather a life-changing experience. The benefits that people achieve from this service are life-lasting and give people a sense of confidence and self-esteem. Many of our patients may start out as strangers, but they leave as friends!

I am a native of Saginaw and, after schooling, returned in 1999. My family includes my husband and three beautiful daughters. When I'm not busy at the office, I enjoy fishing with my husband, picnicking, spending time with my three grandchildren, traveling, reading a good book in the sun, playing with our dogs Keyo, Chewey, and Mary, and enjoying a nice relaxing walk with my husband.

Kathy Larner- Financial Coordinator

I have been working at the front desk and with account receivables for Resler Orthodontics since 2000. My favorite aspect of orthodontics is seeing the final results after debonding - a patient's beautiful smile! I enjoy working with team players and working with patients and their parents on a personal and professional basis.

I am a native of Chesaning and have lived there all my life. I am married with two sons and a daughter. When I'm not at work, I enjoy walking with my dogs and playing with my grandchildren.

Mary Reetz- Treatment Coordinator

I have been with Resler Orthodontics since 1987. As a treatment coordinator, my job is to educate families about orthodontic treatment, work with the doctors during the new-patient process, discuss financial options for treatment, and answer any questions that families may have prior to starting orthodontic treatment.

I enjoy the field of orthodontics, because the patients love their new smiles and you can see how it impacts their lives in so many positive ways.  A very significant part of completed orthodontic treatment is having a bite that fits together properly.  Good dental function is extremely important over a patient's lifetime.  

I am married and have a daughter.  My husband and I live in Freeland where we enjoy gardening, sports, family pets, cooking, hanging out with our neighbors and shopping too!  My perfect vacation consists of sun, sand and the ocean.
