Meet Dr. Catherine Mincy
Since third grade, Dr. Catherine Johnson Mincy knew she wanted to follow in her father’s footsteps — Dr. Charles Johnson — and become a dentist. She attended Ole Miss as an Honor’s Scholar, but ultimately followed her U.S. Navy officer husband and finished her Bachelor’s degree at Old Dominion University in Virginia. She received her Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 1997 from the University of Tennessee College of Dentistry, which is also her father’s alma mater.
Dr. Mincy is a General Dentist who is passionate about continuing education and providing a variety of services to her patients. She completed the rigorous requirements for the Fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD) in 2003 and finished her certification for the World Clinical Laser Institute in 2007. Currently, she is working on her Master’s with the Academy of General Dentistry and her fellowship requirements for the American Association of Implant Dentistry.
She is a member of the American Orthodontic Society and the American Association of Implant Dentistry and attends regular meetings. She is also a member of both the American and Mississippi Association of Women Dentists and the Academy of Sports Dentistry.
Outside of work, Catherine enjoys reading, waterskiing (yes, in her forties, she can still slalom better than most teens!), St. Louis Cardinals baseball, Ole Miss sports, and horses. She teaches Sunday School at her church, First Baptist Church of Booneville; volunteers monthly with the Tree of Life Clinic in Tupelo, providing dental care to indigent patients; and serves on the Booneville School District Board. She and her husband, Jeff, have been married since 1990 and have two daughters, Meridith, a student at Ole Miss, and Leslie Kate, a student at Booneville High School.
