West Jordan Family Dentistry has been providing quality dental care since 1990. WJFD was originally located in West Jordan, Utah but later relocated down the street to Taylorsville, Utah. Although Dr. McGavin is a dentist located in the West Jordan / Taylorsville, Utah area, he provides dental care for people all across the Salt Lake Valley and surrounding areas.

West Jordan Family Dentistry is conveniently located off of the I-215 Redwood Road exit. We have a staff of 10 employees, most of which have been working at West Jordan Family Dentistry for more than 10 years. Our office is equipped with everything necessary to meet your dental needs as well as free Wi-Fi and an entertainment room for children, with toys and thousands of on-demand cartoons available for viewing.

West Jordan Family Dentistry has stayed up with technological advances throughout the years and we are pleased to have digital x-rays, as well as digital panoramic imaging in our office. This significantly reduces the waiting time for our patients, and allows Dr. McGavin to diagnose and treat people in a more timely manner.
