Dr. West was born in Knoxville and grew up in Algood, Tennessee. He was a wide receiver for his High School varsity football team in Cookeville, as well as a winner of national awards in home appliance repair contests! Daniel was a Dean’s List student both in College and in Dental School and, before deciding to specialize in Periodontics, he practiced General Dentistry for a year in Nashville. He now loves helping his patients with all aspects of complete periodontal care including implantology. Daniel currently lives in Gwinnett County and, when not treating patients, enjoys wilderness tent camping, white water rafting, seeing every new movie which comes out and amusement parks – he lives on roller coasters! (Ask him about the Cedar Point ride).
Daniel also enjoys flying and is well on his way to getting his private pilot’s license. Dr. West is a member of the American Academy of Periodontology, Southern Academy of Periodontology and the Americal Dental Association.
