Dental assistants provide chair-side assistance to dentists within a dental facility or a hospital. They are trained in anticipating dentists’ needs during dental procedures and are expected to be prepared at all times to assist them. They also handle administrative work within the facility. This may include scheduling appointments, handling patients’ records and educating patients on procedures and oral healthcare. The main job of a dental assistant is to ensure that the dentist concentrate his work continually.

If you are looking for a job as a dental assistant, you need to send Cold Contact cover letters to different employers in order to be considered for any upcoming opportunity.

Mr. David Williams
Manager Human Resources
Dental Aesthetics
77 61st Street
Corona, NY 63000


Dear Mr. Williams:

I am forwarding my resume as an expression of my interest in the potential position of a Dental Assistant at Dental Aesthetics. Combining my dental assistance experience and strong administrative abilities, I am confident that I would perform extremely well at your facility.

I have a current New York state license as a dental assistant. With demonstrated proficiency in performing expanded chair-side functions, I was considered an asset by the unit of dentists at Coast Dental. I am familiar with OSHA laws and material safety data sheets and possess intense knowledge of oral infection control procedures. Apart from providing chair-side assistance to dentists, I am familiar with a dental facility’s administration needs. For instance, I possess ample experience in scheduling appointments, educating patients on dental procedures and oral hygiene and maintaining patients’ records. With a profound ability to exercise knowledge of dental instruments and terminology, I have been considered a strong one-man backup system for dentists.

While my resume will provide you with all the information you need regarding my skills and accomplishments, an interview will fully reveal my ability to be a major contributor to your facility. I can be reached at (100) 555-5555 if you would like further information regarding my candidacy for this position.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
