Gary A. Bethea, DDS, is honored to again be selected by his peers as one of the Top Dentists in the Midlands. Dr. Bethea earned his undergraduate degree from the University of South Carolina and his dental degree from Meharry Medical College in Nashville, Tennessee. In 2021 Dr. Bethea was privileged to be the recipient of the SC Dental Association’s James B. Edwards Citizenship Award for positively reflecting dentistry and serving the citizens of South Carolina. He and his wife, Dr. Shayla Bethea, established their nonprofit organization, Deeper Than Dentistry, with a focus on mentorship for youth exploring careers in healthcare and other related programs. None of his accomplishments would be possible without Christ, his family, his top-notch team, and the amazing support of his community. When not helping patients, Dr. Bethea loves spending time with Shayla and their four boys — Keon, Gaius, Elijah, and Nolan.
