Meet Dr. Chris Cathey

Being a family dentist is a dream come true for me. I love and enjoy practicing dentistry as well as interacting with my patients. My desire is that everyone that comes through our doors, patient or not, feels extremely welcomed.

I am a confident, fun, and loving person that simply loves what I do. Dentistry is indeed a service, and it is very rewarding to know that I play a part in improving not just someone’s smile but their overall quality of life.

Education and Continuing Education

Before going to dental school, I received my Bachelors of Science in Biology from Jackson State University. After graduating, I entered dental school at the University of Mississippi Medical Center School of Dentistry earning a Doctorate of Dental Medicine (DMD). After dental school, I received additional training from New York University College of Dentistry’s Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency program. During my residency, I was trained in CAD/CAM, implant restorations, treating medically complexed patients, as well as a variety of advanced procedures and treatment options for dental patients.

As a general dentist, I am devoted to lifelong learning and education in dentistry. I am currently taking continuing education courses to stay current on the latest technological advances in dentistry and also to continue to enhance my clinical skills to ensure I am providing exceptional care to my patients.

Outside the Office

Besides dentistry, I really enjoy traveling and listening to music. I love sports as well so I enjoy going to sports events including football games at my alma mater Jackson State University (go tigers!). Some of my favorite hobbies outside of the office are mentoring youth and spending time with my family.
