Carmel West Dentistry is Your Carmel, IN Dentist

Your unique dental experience begins the moment you walk through the doors of Carmel West Dentistry. Our friendly team will greet you by name, help you with your insurance forms, treat you with kindness, and make sure you don’t spend a lot of time in our reception area.

And while you’re in our reception area, you can enjoy our coffee and juice bar. You can also connect to our free WiFi, or surf the Web at a computer station reserved for patients.

During your appointment, you’ll receive one-on-one care customized to your needs. Dr. Tannous takes the time to listen to your concerns, explain each procedure and answer all your questions. And to make sure you are always as comfortable as possible, she uses the latest, gentlest equipment and techniques while you sit back comfortably in a state-of-the-art dental chair with cozy blankets and orthopedic pillows.

And, if you’d like to relax even more, you can listen to a CD or watch a movie while she enhances your smile. While relaxing in the chair, you’ll also discover that she uses ultramodern electric hand pieces without the loud “whining” sound so you’ll have to listen closely to even tell she’s using them. It’s all part of her ongoing commitment to giving patients the most enjoyable dental experience possible. Dental care that’s precisely right for your situation.

Dear Valued Patients,

I am very pleased and proud to introduce Dr. Rawan Tannous. I have carefully evaluated a number of candidates, and have selected Dr. Tannous, whom I believe possesses the highest qualifications and is extremely well skilled in all phases of dentistry. I feel very fortunate to have found the perfect dentist to take over my practice and continue to provide you with the very best dental care.

Dr. Tannous received her dental training from Nova Southeastern University in Davie, Florida. In addition to over 10 years of experience, she has advanced education in General Dentistry. Dr. Tannous enjoys all aspects of dentistry, though she is most passionate about health, beauty, and overall oral care. Outside of the office, she enjoys spending time with her husband and two beautiful children. She also likes to travel, cook and entertain.

I will be working along with Dr. Tannous to ensure a smooth transition. Also, my wonderful staff will be the same and will be here to assist you any way they can.

I feel confident that Dr. Tannous will continue to provide you and your family with the best dental care possible. My plan is to continue working but with reduced hours starting in November.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your trust and confidence in permitting me to take care of your dental needs through the years. I trust that you will show Dr. Tannous the same loyalty and friendship that you have shown me.

I am looking forward to this next chapter in my life. If you would like more information or have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the office.

Thank you again for your loyalty and confidence over the past 40 years!

Very Sincerely Yours,

Nancy Halsema, D.D.S.



My family and I have been going to Carmel West Dentistry for over 10 years. We have always had good experiences with them and have been very pleased. Recently Dr. Halsema retired and the practice has been taken over by Dr. Tannous. I am pleased to report that Dr. Tannous is excellent. I recently had some old fillings replaced and the procedure was quick and painless. Very happy

Dentists scare me!

That is until I became a patient of Dr. Halsema. She and her staff greet me as if I had known them for years. They provide a relaxing atmosphere and make me feel special. If a problem arises, they help me solve it and that includes monetary matters.

I no longer dread going to the dentist.

Thank you.

Oh yes – they make treatments painless!

I have been a patient at Carmel West Dentistry for more years than I can count. Today I had a procedure performed by Dr. Tannous. I am MORE THAN PLEASED. I’m so happy Dr. Halsema picked such a caring, comforting and most of all competent Dentist to take over her practice. Even though it’s a bit of a drive to get there, my family and I will continue with this great team of healthcare professionals!
