Meet Dr. West

Jacqueline West DMD General Dentist Jacksonville

Dr. West grew up in Miami, but has lived in the Jacksonville area since 2002. She received her undergraduate degree in sports medicine from Pepperdine University in California and earned her graduate degree from the University of Florida’s School of Dentistry. After graduation, Dr. West accepted an associate position with a dentist in Jacksonville. She worked in the community for three years before deciding it was the place she wanted to stay. She bought her practice from Dr. Larry Sayre, who retired after working in the same location for 42 years. Dr. West decided she wanted to establish the same long-term relationships with her patients.

Professionally, Dr. West is a member of the Florida Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry and the American Dental Association. Her passion for restoration and preservation extends beyond dentistry, motivating her to devote numerous volunteer hours to restoration and preservation projects in the Historic Riverside and Avondale areas, helping restore several homes, including the second floor of the home where her office is located. She also enjoys riding her bike on the beach, dancing and attending SEC football games. She was married in March 2006 to Grant Smith, who is a certified dental technician and implant specialist.
She is a proud mother both a son and daughter, Walker and Charlotte.

Her commitment to providing the most current approaches to patient care motivates her to attend the prestigious Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies twice each year for continuing education courses. Dr. West has recently become a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. The AACD is going to be a five year certification program. It has some extensive dental training and teaches about the greatest and latest new developments and technology in dentistry. Only 2% of dentist in the nation has received the AACD certification. Dr. West feels the certification will help her be the best that she can be for her patients.
