Keven Carlton – Registered Dental Hygienist
“Hi, my name is Keven Carlton and I am one of the registered dental hygienists who will be working with you routinely, helping you maintain your teeth for a lifetime. I feel so privileged to be able to work with so many wonderful patients everyday and help them with my dental skills and my sense of humor! I have been practicing with Dr. Westermann for over 25 years and cherish the relationships I have made with my patients. I love seeing them every few months and sharing what has gone on in their life since our last appointment. It gives me great pleasure to be able to educate them about their oral health, and uplift their spirits. A personal caring attitude is a must in our profession, in my opinion!”
Keven graduated from the Univ. of Louisville School of Dentistry in 1985, and received her certification in laser treatment of gum disease in 2011. She enjoys spending time with her nieces and nephews, and is also a polymer clay artist making jewelry and all kinds of things, for her business KevsoKraft! She has articles on display in various galleries throughout the city!
Samantha West, Registered Dental Hygienist
“Hi, my name is Samantha and I am the newest member of the team. I look forward to meeting all the great patients in Dr. Westermann’s practice and helping them maintain their oral health. I love my job, and patients tell me I am very gentle. Your comfort is always my main concern. I am excited to work with you to achieve your overall optimum health! I am an Indiana native, graduating with a degree in Kinesiology from Indiana University, and continuing on to get a Bachelors of Dental Hygiene. I love education, and will enjoy educating you about what is going on with your dental health. I feel that hygiene was my destiny because my mom has been a hygienist for 30 years and I am looking forward to following in her footsteps.”
When not working I like being outside hiking, biking, boating and playing with our yellow lab, Ellie.

“Hi, I am Kathy Lega. I am the expanded duty dental assistant, who will be working very closely with Dr. Westermann on your clinical care.

Alice DeWitt, Expanded Duties Dental Assistant
Hi, I’m Alice and I’m usually the first person you will meet on the phone, and in person when you come into Dr. Westermann’s practice. I love being able to help patients receive the dental care they need. I am so thrilled to be working for a quality practice that really cares about the patients. I can easily schedule appointments for you and work you with on payments and insurance. Seeing the caring relationships that my team has with their patients is so inspiring! I have been here about 5 years now, and am so blessed to be working with such a great team and patients!”
Alice has 20 years experience as an expanded duties assistant, working chairside clinically. She also has experience working with insurance companies, scheduling, and patient management, and can help you with about anything you need here! You will often see her working chairside because she still loves the clinical aspects of dentistry, even though she is mainly at the front desk.
Alice is married to Mike and has two children, Brady and Carter. She loves to play bingo and is a big Cardinals fan!
