Are dwarf planets and minor planets the samet hing?

Dwarf planets are celestial bodies that have enough mass to have a gravitational pull by the sun, but they are not large enough to be considered a regular planet. They are also too big to be satellites. Minor planets are in direct orbit with the sun. They are not dominant planets, and they are not comets. This qualifies all dwarf planets as minor planets. So, to answer your question, not exactly. All dwarf planets are minor planets. But not all minor planets are dwarf planets. Hope this helps you!!
