West Orthodontics: Over Two Years in the Making

Most people would assume that a newly-open orthodontic practice would be home to a recent graduate in the field of orthodontics. In most cases, those people would be correct; however, in the case of West Orthodontics, the individual opening the practice is actually a decorated orthodontic veteran. Dr. Kristine West has actually had an orthodontic career that’s spanned over two decades. While this is her first practice she’s started from scratch, she’s had vast experience in virtually every other facet of the orthodontic field.

Following her graduate work in orthodontics at the University of Michigan, Dr. West was asked to join a prominent practice right out of school. Even though she had no ownership interest, she was considered a full partner from day one. In the next year, Dr. West had accepted a position as a part-time adjunct assistant clinical professor in the Department of Orthodontics and Pediatric Dentistry at the University of Michigan, which she still maintains to this very day.

In 2012, after a period of working and achieving many successes in her career, Dr. West decided that she wanted to find more of a balance in her life. She sold her share of the practice to her partner and decided to just teach, spend more time with her family and pursue her dream of becoming a competitive ballroom dancer.

While she’s helped other build up their practices and has purchased existing practices which she nurtured and grea, Dr. West has never started a practice from scratch...until now. With a wealth of expertise and success from all of her other ventures, Dr. West is creating a premier orthodontic practice that is her masterpiece.
