Writing a cover letter for a dental assistant resume, when you have no prior experience, is a difficult task. If you don’t have particular, paid work experience, you’ll still be capable of using your cover letter to emphasize the skills, abilities and experience you’ve gained through school, training, honorary or part-time experience, internship or voluntary positions.

The entry level Dental Assistant Cover Letter needs to be short (no longer than one page), so you’ll need to write just one or two paragraphs that portray your key selling points. List your skills and abilities in bullet form to make them easy to read.
