Meet Kate West, DMD

Dr. Kate WestIn the twelfth grade, Dr. West was required by her high school to follow an occupation of interest and give a presentation to her teachers as part of her graduation requirement. She hoped that the “project” would help open her eyes to different majors when applying to college.

She was able to follow her lifelong mentor and hometown dentist for this project, where she grew to love dentistry! The project soon turned into a summer job, where she was able to assist and work the front desk, giving her a clear perspective of the dental field.

Dental Education

Dr. West grew up in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, and is a Clemson University graduate. There she earned her Bachelor of Arts in Biological Science with a minor in Microbiology in 2014. She earned her Doctor of Dental Medicine at The Medical University of South Carolina in 2018.

In 2019, Dr. West furthered her dental education by completing an optional one-year general practice residency at Palmetto Health Richland Hospital (Prisma Health) in Columbia, SC. She is a member of the American Dental Association and South Carolina Dental Association.

In the future, Dr. West will be taking continuing education courses focused on restorative dentistry, Invisalign® and Botox®.

A Passion for Helping Others

Dr. West loves assisting others. The most exciting part of dentistry for her is growing with the patient and creating that lifelong bond. She not only loves the science and art side of the occupation, but also enjoys being able to grow with the patient while helping them reach their goals. Whether that’s transforming a smile or changing a habit, Dr. West loves to be there every step of the way!


Outside the Practice

When she’s not caring for patients’ smiles, Dr. West loves spending time with her yellow Labrador, Carl, and her husband, Henry. They enjoy traveling, boating, hiking, gardening, and cheering on their Clemson Tigers in any and all sports.
