Our Team

Of course we’re a little biased, but we believe Montgomery Dentistry has the friendliest, most professional and best-trained staff in town!

As a staff, we go way beyond expected dental skills by engaging ourselves in “continuous training” year-round.  We regularly meet as a team to learn about the latest dental products and practices, bring in guest speakers, sharpen our skills, and even train in areas beyond our daily routine such as orthodontic practices.

We realize this isn’t normal for a dentist office, so why would we want to do this?

Simply because we want our patients to experience the highest quality dental service around!  We want to answer all of your questions, service any type of dental problem you have, and give you confidence that you are being cared for by the best in the industry.

At Montgomery Dentistry, we offer you professional service in a family-atmosphere.  As a staff, we are friends inside and outside of the office, and we enjoy treating our patients like friends as well.

We’re excited to get to know you, and we hope you’ll take the time to get to know us too!

Dr. John A. Buettner


Dr. Buettner is from Cullman, Alabama, and graduated from Cullman High School in 1979.  He attended Auburn University, and the University of Alabama for undergraduate studies.  After three years of undergraduate work, he was selected to enter the University of Alabama, Birmingham School of Dentistry under an accelerated program that allowed honor students to enter the dental school with only three years of undergraduate work completed.  His first year of dental school completed his undergraduate degree in pre-dentistry and he graduated with the academic honor cum laude. He has been practicing dentistry since 1986.  Dr. Buettner and his wife Kendall have two daughters, Dawson and Laurel.

He is a member of the American Dental Association, the Alabama Dental Association, and the Academy of General Dentistry and is a strong supporter of PSIF (Public Service Insurance Fund).  PSIF is a program that provides free life and accidental insurance to all active duty officers in the Montgomery Fire Department, Police Department, Sheriff’s Department and State Troopers.

Betty Karle, Office Manager


Betty has been with Montgomery Dentistry for sixteen years as the Office Manager.  She was born in Charleston, West Virginia and attended high school and college there.  Her husband Don is a retired Air Force Officer and after having enjoyed the city while attending several Air Force schools at Maxwell AFB, they decided when the time came they would retire in Montgomery.  Betty says it was actually the weather in the south that attracted them. “When you have lived in the far north for years, with long months of well below freezing temperatures and deep snow, you just look for a place where, when you show them a snow shovel and they don’t know what it is, you say Home At Last!”

“As far as my work goes, I must honestly say I truly enjoy working at Montgomery Dentistry,” says Betty.  “Drs. Anderson, Robertson, and Buettner are all very hard working people and are dedicated to providing the best dental care possible to our patients.”  Betty and Don have two sons, Ryan and Reid and three Granddaughters, Taylor, Sofia, and Vivian.
