Originally from Hazlehurst, Miss., Dr. Chandra Minor now owns and operates two orthodontics businesses in the Jackson metro, Smile Design Orthodontics in Pearl and Vicksburg Orthodontics in Vicksburg.

She completed her undergraduate degree with Alcorn State University in 2008 before enrolling at the UMMC School of Dentistry, earning her doctorate of dental medicine in 2012.

She decided to open her first practice in Pearl after being encouraged by a colleague. Given that Hazlehurst already had an orthodontics practice, Minor felt she would be able to serve a larger area by setting up shop in the Jackson metro. The Vicksburg location followed not long afterward.

“Running a small business takes a lot of patience, hard work and dedication, (but) orthodontics is great. I love it. It’s the easy part,” Minor says. “I enjoy interacting with patients and being able to improve their smiles and self-confidence.”

Outside of work, Minor enjoys spending time with her family. She has recently married and is expecting a baby later this year. —Nate Schumann
