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. Halsema 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.


I have been a patient of Dr. Halsema’s since she took over the practice – you might say “I came with!” 🙂 I think the fact that I have remained with her for over 25 years speaks for itself, but if it does not – let me add that she has been my son’s dentist since he was a toddler and I referred my mother to her when she relocated to Indy. So Dr. Halsema has been protecting the teeth and gums of 3 generations of my family. I am blessed to have good genetics and with that and the excellent care I get from Dr. Halsema and my hygenist Debbie Pearson, I have all my teeth and plan to keep them for life. My thanks to the entire staff for providing excellent, consistent and compassionate care. This is my dental practice for life!

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 Dr. Nancy Halsema’s patient for over fifteen years, and I can honestly say that she is the best dentist I’ve ever had. Through fillings, crowns, veneers, referrals, and after-hours emergency calls, Dr. Halsema has always been warmly professional, expertly efficient, gentle, and understanding. She makes you feel like a friend – not just a patient – and her work lasts!

These qualities are reflected in each member of Dr. Halsema’s staff as well. They are always so welcoming, pleasant, and helpful – immediately putting you at ease in the lovely and comfortable state-of-the-art office. I’m always seen promptly and it’s easy to make convenient appointments.

I have complete confidence in Dr. Halsema and her staff, and I can’t recommend them highly enough. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!
