Meet The Team

Meet The Team

McConnell Orthodontics is a continuation of Anderson Orthodontic Associates started by Dr. McConnell’s father, Dr. B.C. McConnell, Jr., who practiced orthodontics for 42 years before retiring in 2010. Dr. McConnell was very fortunate to work and learn from his father for several years prior to his retirement, thus ensuring the tradition of orthodontic excellence and stellar reputation continued into the next generation. The Team at McConnell Orthodontics is an integral part of the success of the practice. Each member is highly trained in their respective roles and deeply cares for each and every patient. Most of the Team has been on board at least 20+ years, with a couple members approaching 40+ years in the practice! McConnell Orthodontics is truly fortunate to have such a stable, wonderful, and experienced Team which benefits each and every patient.

Dr. Beechard C. McConnell, III is formally trained as a specialist in orthodontics for children and adults. A lifelong Anderson resident, Dr. Beech, as his patients like to call him, graduated from T. L. Hanna High School. He received his B.S. degree in Financial Management from Clemson University in 1992. In May 2002, Dr. McConnell received his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the Medical University of South Carolina where he served as class president all four years, was appointed the ADEA representative for the school, and graduated near the top of his class academically and first clinically. Dr. McConnell was accepted directly into the Medical College of Georgia’s Orthodontic residency program, where he received his Certificate in Orthodontics in December 2004.
