Dr. Jacqueline West practices in a state-of-the-art Jacksonville office.
Dental technology is rapidly advancing, and that means care is now more comfortable and efficient than ever — but only if you visit a dentist who values keeping up with the latest technology. Dr. West regularly invests in the critical tools that are changing dentistry, like the intraoral camera, digital X-rays, and the soft tissue laser.

We want to communicate all treatment plans as clearly and effectively as possible, and you know what helps in that mission? Our intraoral camera, which provides an up-close-and-personal image of your teeth and oral structures on a crystal clear screen right at your chair-side. With this tool, we can show you just what’s going on inside your mouth — and that makes it easier for you to ask well-informed questions.
X-rays are an important diagnostic tool for any dentist. Traditional X-rays require special equipment for development, and they take several minutes to complete — valuable time that you’re likely taking away from work or school. With digital X-rays, we can capture a high-quality image of your teeth and supportive bone structures in a matter of seconds. What’s more, digital radiography also exposes you and your loved ones to far less radiation in the process.
Soft Tissue Laser
When it is time to repair periodontal tissue after gum disease or fix the appearance of a gummy smile or uneven gum line, the soft tissue laser is an invaluable tool that we are pleased to have on hand here at West Dentistry. Compared to traditional gum tissue procedures, which require the use of a scalpel and sutures, the soft tissue laser is more comfortable, minimizes bleeding, and is associated with shorter healing periods.
