Dr. West's bio

This content was provided by Dr. West "Dr. Christopher West was born in Nassau, Bahamas and has been a resident of South Florida since 1979. He grew up in the area and attended Palm Beach Gardens High School, where he was proud to be part of the Palm Beach Gardens Gator High School football team. After high school, Dr. West furthered his education at Florida State University where he obtained his Bachelor of Science degree in Biological Science. Upon graduation from FSU, Dr. West was a high school science teacher at Palm Beach Lakes High School where he also coached the soccer, swimming, and volleyball teams. While teaching at Palm Beach Lakes High School, Dr. West returned to graduate school at Florida Atlantic University where he obtained his Florida teaching certificate. Never losing sight of his dream to become an orthodontist, Dr. West left teaching to pursue a Master of Science degree in Environmental Science. While applying to dental school, he was employed as the Head Biologist for EnviroGlades, Inc. where he worked to help protect and restore South Florida’s coral reefs, wetlands, and estuaries. In 2001, Dr. West finally left South Florida to attend dental school at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA. He was president of his dental class and president of the Temple University Society for the Study of Orthodontics. He graduated with highest honors, Summa Cum Laude, and was awarded a dual degree, Doctor of Medical Dentistry and Masters of Business Administration. In addition to dental school, Dr. West also completed his orthodontic residency program at Temple University where he received another Master of Science degree for his research involving Invisalign’s® attachment effectiveness. PROFESSIONAL AFFILIATIONS Dr. West has exceptional credentials and is committed to excellence in the practice of orthodontics. He is board certified and a member of numerous organizations, including the American Association of Orthodontists, the American Dental Association, the Southern Association of Orthodontists, the Florida Association of Orthodontists, and the Florida Dental Association. In addition, Dr. West has also served as a delegate for the Atlantic Coast District Dental Association and as a board member for the North Palm Beach Dental Society. OUTSIDE THE OFFICE Dr. West not only works in Jupiter, he and his wife, Shelley, also reside here and have recently started a family of their own. Daxton who was born on November 13, 2013 and Porter who was born on May 21, 2015 were both born at Jupiter Medical Center, and are proud to call themselves Jupiter Natives! When Dr. West is not in the office he enjoys all things water related, surfing, fishing, boating, and scuba diving. In addition, he loves to travel for snowboarding and of course spending time with his family and two dogs. The West family has been growing and we hope you join our family at Family Orthodontics."
