I have been a patient of Dr. Halsema since 1997…

I have been a patient of Dr. Halsema since 1997. My medical doctor, Stephen Beck, referred me to Dr. Halsema when I first moved to Indianapolis. I am a big fan of informative recommendations from others. It is very important to me to be treated by qualified medical professionals who I can trust with my health care.

As a young child, I was traumatized by visits to the dentist. My parents thought we should go to a certain dentist as he was an acquaintance of the family. When I needed my first filling, I was not numbed in any way. The pain was excruciating. After a few more visits and one or two more fillings and experiencing the pain, I told my parents I was terrified and could never go back to the dentist. This was a very bad experience for me.

During the following years through adolescence and into early adulthood, I dreaded going to the dentist. I would literally get sick to my stomach and my entire body would cramp up.

The best experience of my life with dentistry has been with Dr. Halsema. She and her team are very gentle, they make sure from the beginning of any treatment that pain is not an issue, they are very thorough and very good at explaining what has to be done and what they are doing. Furthermore, they are very accommodating with appointment days and times.

Dr. Halsema is out of network for me and my insurance does not cover much of the services provided. I pay a lot of money out of pocket for piece of mind. I am grateful for her service.

Sincerely,

Karen S. Henderson

My husband and I are very pleased with Dr. Tannous and her staff. And that says something given how pleased we were in all ways with Dr. Halsema. It also says something given that I became a patient of Dr. Halsema years ago after calling an endodontist’s office asking for a referral after becoming decidedly unhappy with the dentist who’d taken over the practice of my previous dentist. The referral for Dr. Halsema was immediate and gushing. She was so good in all the ways you want, that we decided we’d make the a-little-over-an hour drive after our upcoming move 85 miles away rather than seek someone else closer. She was that worthy of the gushing.Regarding Dr. Tannous, my husband and I each had a couple appointments with Dr. Tannous before we moved, and we agreed we each were very pleased, and that we’d delay making any search for a new dentist closer to our new home. Now it’s more than a year later and we have no intention of looking for a dentist closer to us. Dr. Tannous... and the staff really are that good! Every single person we’ve dealt with has been excellent in all ways. Besides routine care, we’ve each had a bit of dental work done. Always, the information provided, and questions answered are done with genuinely caring attention. We’re each every bit as pleased with Dr. Tannous as we were with Dr. Halsema—and that says a lot. It’s well worth the drive time for exceptional care with a really good dentist we trust!read more

My experience in the past few months has been awesome; I say the last few months because i had some serious dental work done. The Dentist that's taken over for Nancy was just wonderful. When I called in; desperate; they were able to get me right in; She gave me a few options and we went from there. I appreciate good billing practices also. I hate being blind sided with a bill that came out of the air. So Carmel Well Gets a A Plus in there billing and communication.dental work was also an A.. one more thing! Her Assistants are just as good as her! imagine that!

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

I am a new patient and was not sure what to expect when I first went in. During my appointment I was greeted and welcomed by a warm and friendly staff. Dr. Tannous was friendly, professional, and very well informed she addressed all my questions and concerns. I will definitely continue with Carmel West Dentistry!

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!

I’ve never had a dentist I’ve looked forward to going to before until now. She is also amazing with my children. The wife is also very comfortable going to Dr. Tannous as well and she came from a dentist that she was at for a long time until they stopped taking our insurance. Very pleased.

I've been a patient of Carmel West Dentistry since 2007. This was my first crown replacement. Dr. Nancy and her team [Melissa] were GREAT! The end result...painless. The crown fits like a glove; perfect placement. I'm a HUGE fan! Thank you all...

By far the best Dentist experience I have ever had, all of the staff were very friendly and fully informed me what they were going to perform. The best part was that Dr. Halsema was never pushy for me to get a certain procedure, she only educated me and explained why I should consider a certain procedure to better my hygiene and health. I would definitely recommend.

I was always scared of going to the dentist. Dr. Halsema was referred to us by a friend and my first appointment was an emergency appointment and I was taken such good care of. I never fear going for my cleanings or any other matters. They keep me smiling each time! Great and caring staff!

I've had a variety of dentists over the years but Dr. Halsema and her outstanding staff are the best! I've been "exclusive" with Dr. Halsema for almost 20 years for several reasons. (1) She is a conservative dentist in that she only recommends work that is needed now or in the near future. I never have had the thought, "Maybe I need a 2nd opinion". If she recommends a procedure...then I need that procedure. (2) Her staff is fantastic with very low turnover. I see the same staff members every time I visit her office. They're like family. (3) Cindy is the best dental tech I've ever had. I actually enjoy my cleanings! (4) I don't have dental insurance and I love her annual dental plan. Save me a lot of money. If you're not a patient and looking for a new "dental home" then set an appointment today! You won't regret your decision.

I truly had such a wonderful experience for my first visit. I was very anxious/nervous, but Dr. Halsema explained and talked me through everything she did. From start to finish her team was kind, courteous, and understanding. I would recommend her and her team to my closest friends and family (along with anyone else I can)!

Dr. Halsema and her staff are amazing. I had to have multiple cavities filled. I decided to get them all done at the same time. I was there for 3 hours. I can honestly say, they cared about my whole well being and not just about getting the cavities filled and out the door. They truly care about you as a person and not just as a revenue stream.

I really enjoyed my experience at Carmel West Dentistry. When I called as a new client to set up an appointment the receptionist was very nice and friendly. I wasn't sure if my insurance would work and she worked hard to find out of it did and seemed happy to help. The atmosphere had a warm feeling and was very clean and organized. The dental assistant, Autumn, was very friendly. Dr. Halsema was very nice and was very thorough while working on me. She was also very personable. I would recommend this place to anyone!
