Meet Dr. West, Associate Orthodontist
Dr. Cailynn West grew up in Los Angeles, California with her older brother and parents who both worked in the film industry. She received a Bachelor of Science degree from Centre College, graduating cum laude with a major in Behavioral Neuroscience while playing two sports (basketball and softball). After graduation, Cailynn moved to Lexington, Kentucky to attend the University of Kentucky where she earned her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree and graduated with the highest honors at the top of her class. After dental school, she completed a residency program at the University of Louisville from which she received an Orthodontics Specialization Certificate and Master of Science degree.
Dr. West had her very own experience with braces in dental school. She was fascinated by the way her teeth moved in treatment and loved the newfound confidence a beautiful smile gave her. She knew from then on she wanted to give the gift of a gorgeous smile to others and decided to continue her education in Orthodontics.
Dr. West’s fiancé, Eric, is a Cincinnati native and was actually treated by Dr. Logeman back in the day! Dr. West and Eric met in college and are getting married in April 2021. They love to stay active and enjoy cycling, playing sand volleyball and taking their 4-year old Sheprador, Moose, on long walks. They also love cooking, game nights with friends, and cheering on the Lakers, Bengals, and Reds.
Dr. West looks forward to encouraging confidence with beautiful smiles and serving the awesome families of Cincinnati.
