Welcome to Chelsea Orthodontics! We’ve been providing people with beautiful, healthy smiles since 1987.
Orthodontics is a combination of science and art. We design each treatment to uniquely suit each individual’s needs.
We want every patient and family to be fully informed about their orthodontic treatment. Before you start your treatment, we spend lots of time with you to make sure that you feel comfortable with your treatment options.
The key words of our practice are Kindness, Respect, and Quality.
Dr. Mary Barkley is a life-long Michigan resident – she grew up in Flushing, Michigan, near Flint. She received her dental degree from the University of Michigan in 1984, and her orthodontic degree from the University of Detroit-Mercy in 1986. She has practiced orthodontics in Chelsea since 1987.
Dr. Barkley is also a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics. This is a voluntary examination process, in which an orthodontist presents treated cases and undergoes an oral exam. Involvement in the certification process is a demonstration of the orthodontist's pursuit of continued proficiency and excellence. For more information on ABO certification, go to http://www.americanboardortho.com/public/ .
Dr. Barkley is very involved in leadership of the orthodontic community – she served as President of the Michigan Association of Orthodontists in 1997, and as President of the Great Lakes Association of Orthodontists (Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Ontario and western Pennsylvania) in 2008. She continues to serve on committees and councils of the American Association of Orthodontists.
Dr. Barkley and her husband, Gregory, have two sons, Dan and Brian, who are both in college.
Dr. Barkley would like everyone to know that she loves being an orthodontist! “Providing orthodontic treatment is like putting a puzzle together,” she says. “I have so many puzzle pieces to assemble for each patient – jaw size, tooth size, jaw growth, facial profile. And then I get to design the orthodontic treatment that will most benefit each patient’s different puzzle pieces!”
My name is Theresa. I’ve been with Chelsea Orthodontics since 2005 . I am the Appointment Coordinator. I have been married to my wonderful husband Jim, for 32 years. We have two kids, Megan and Jimmie. Two grandkids!!!
I enjoy being outdoors in the summer tending to my flower gardens. I also live on a farm and we raise beef cattle.
My name is Gentri. I am the Treatment Coordinator but also a Clinical Assistant. I have been in orthodontics for 15 years and LOVE IT! My favorite part about working here (besides the amazing staff) is getting to know each patient and their families, watching them grow up, and tell us about all their accomplishments as well as seeing them gain confidence in their smiles.
My husband and I have 3 children (Avery 6, Thomas 3, and Eleanor 2) that keep us very busy (and tired). I enjoy watching my daughters dance and my son try to tackle everyone. When I'm not at work, I'm usually hanging out with my kids, supporting my husbands football team (Go Hawks), or crafting.
