Mr. Geoffrey Gordan
Manager HR
DDS Dental Hospital
6 Wakefield Road
Princeton, NJ 65243


Dear Mr. Gordan:

I have been looking for a position as a Registered Dental Assistant ever since I acquired my RDA Licensure three months ago. Seeing your advertisement for an open position in this regard, I would like to offer my services in order to contribute to your mission.

I have had the opportunity to work as an apprentice at Dental Habitat where I have learned more complex procedures in dental care. I possess demonstrated knowledge of dental health education along with ability to use sound judgement while performing procedures. My calm but alert disposition makes its easy for me to recognize dental emergencies and I possess enough knowledge to be able to impart instructions to patients about prudent dental care and pre and post operative care. Additionally, I have had some exposure to the dental equipment and tools used and I have the know how of setting up procedure tables. OPver and above, I have the ability to promote an atmosphere that is favourable to good dental health.

I would like to meet with you in person to discuss this Registered Dental Assistant opportunity further. I’ll call you during the first week of January to set an appointment. In the interim, if you need any further information from my side, I can be contacted at (000) 009-9140.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
