Jarrett Pumphrey (pictured bottom middle) grew up in Houston Texas, where his father managed a successful practice. Pumphrey channeled his father’s business acumen into his own venture, ClearCorrect, which makes an alternative to braces. “It’s no surprise my brothers and I are all as driven as we are; you just can’t grow up in an environment like that, with parents like that, without some of it rubbing off,” he says.
