Dear Ms. Winchell,
Since I will soon be moving to New Parkland, I will be leaving my current position with Dr. Stephen Thomas in Los Angeles. For this reason, I am responding to your opening for a Dental Assistant at Family Dental. I’ve attached my resume and a letter of recommendation from Dr. Thomas for your consideration.
I’ve acquired valuable firsthand experience while working as a Dental Assistant for nearly a decade now. I am especially adept at making patients feel comfortable while performing a variety of duties, including taking x-rays, fabricating crowns and bridges and providing oral hygiene instructions to promote good dental health between visits.
While working for Dr. Thomas, I worked with patients ranging from toddlers to seniors, fitting right in with your solid reputation as a family dental practice. I would also be able to keep your office running efficiently by maintaining and updating your patient records, scheduling appointments, answering phones and cleaning exam rooms and instruments.
In addition to extensive experience working in office and clinical environments, I also initiated community outreach programs with the support of Dr. Thomas, including visits to schools to promote effective oral hygiene practices. I look forward to scheduling an interview at your convenience.
