Dr. Seymour’s Life Before Desoto Family Dental Care
Dr. Seymour was born and raised in Biloxi, Mississippi, down along the Gulf. Upon graduating from Biloxi High School, he headed up to Oxford to attend college at Ole Miss. But Dr. Seymour’s steadfast dedication to education didn’t end there. He continued on to the University of Tennessee to get his degree in dentistry.
Dr. Seymour’s time in Memphis led to more than just a degree. It was there that he met his wife Shirley, who was then a student in the dental hygiene school. They married the year before graduating, and then they moved to Marks, MS, to begin their careers in dentistry. They stayed in Marks for a few years, gaining valuable experience in their field. And it was in there that their daughter Holly was born.
The Start of Desoto Dental Family Care
The Seymours moved to Hernando in 1974 to start the dental practice that would eventually become Desoto Family Dental Care. And they’ve lived there ever since! The Seymours have always had a habit of excelling. Dr. Seymour was recognized by the Mississippi Dental Association for 35 years of going above and beyond his annual education requirements.
Dr. Seymour and his wife have been hugely active within the Hernando community since they moved there. Dr. Seymour spent time as the President of both the Hernando Rotary Club and the Chamber of Commerce, and has been a part of numerous Hernando boards.
An Ole Miss Rebel at heart, Dr. Seymour still enjoys watching his first Alma Mater play football on Saturdays. He is also involved in Honduras missions as well as the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
