Dr. Cailynn West was born and raised in Los Angeles, California with her parents and older brother. Her parents both worked in the film industry, so she spent a lot of time on TV and movie sets when she was younger. Although she loved her Hollywood lifestyle, Kentucky always held a special place in her heart as her mother was born there. After graduating high school, she flew across the United States to study at Centre College in Danville Kentucky, where she played two sports (basketball and softball). Dr. West graduated from Centre College in 2012 with honors and a Bachelor of Science in Behavioral Neuroscience. She went on to study at the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry graduating in 2018 with high honors and a membership in the prestigious Omicron Kappa Upsilon honorary dental society.
Dr. West had her 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. She received her Masters of Science and Orthodontic Certificate from University of Louisville School of Dentistry in June of 2020. Dr. West is a board-certified orthodontist and a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics- an accomplishment attained by only a small group of practicing orthodontists in the country.
Following graduation, Dr. West moved to Cincinnati with her husband (a Cincinnati native) and 5-year-old Sheprador, Moose. They love to stay active and enjoy cycling, taking Moose on walks, playing sand-volleyball, game nights with friends and cheering on the Lakers, Bengals and Reds! Dr. West looks forward to helping you achieve your perfect smile 🙂
