Bethany Records Technician

Bethany Smith

Treatment Coordinator
Records Technician
Clinical Assistant

Hello! My name is Bethany, I am the Records Technician as well as a clinical assistant. I just recently moved to Beaufort SC to begin my career in Orthodontics. I am originally from Virginia where I graduated from Radford University with a BS in Psychology and worked as an ABA therapist for children with autism. I wanted a change in careers and I am blessed that Dr.Scott gave me the opportunity to start with her team. Being a part of the initial consultations and given my experience dealing with children that may have high anxiety, I have found it has been a natural fit. I enjoy getting to know all of my patients and always like to share a laugh with them. I strive to make this a comfortable and enjoyable experience for all! In my spare time I like to run, go to the beach, swim, ride bikes, cook, and have fun with friends and family.


Stephanie Waninger

Office Manager

Hello! My name is Stephanie, and I am the Office Manager at Coastal Orthodontics. I am grateful to have the opportunity to work with Dr. Scott and see her positive impact in the Beaufort community. My hometown is back in Indiana, but South Carolina has stolen my heart. My background is in accounting and higher education, where I obtained my degrees from the University of South Carolina. In my free time, my husband and I love exploring, kayaking, and just being by the water in general.


Theresa Franco

Clinical Assistant

Hello! My name is Theresa, and I am a Clinical Assistant here at Coastal Orthodontics. I have experience working in endodontics before I moved here to Beaufort. My husband and I are from Ormond Beach, Florida and we have 5 children. I’m thankful to work with children every day, and I love hearing them tell different stories each time they come in to see us. When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family and exercising.
