When writing a regular cover letter to accompany a dental assistant’s resume, the key is to relate your skills and experience with the job descriptions and expectations of the employer.
In case of a cold contact cover letter, since no job descriptions are available, the task becomes a bit difficult. However, if the candidate is confident about the pursued post, the letter can relate candidate’s skills to the general job descriptions related to the position.
To compose a cold contact cover letter for the position of dental assistant, the candidate needs to clarify in the letter, how s/he would be an asset to the prospective clinic and why s/he is interested in joining that particular organization.
Following is a sample cold-contact letter for the position of dental assistant.

Dear Dr. Phillips:
I’m pleased to introduce myself as an experienced and highly skilled dental assistant. After completing my Associate degree of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene from Seattle, I obtained a certificate in Dental Assistance from American Dental Association. I had been working as a dental assistant at Aspen Dental in Seattle for about three years.
Dental assistance is my passion; it’s the job I take pleasure in. I am a proactive and committed professional who could bring many positive changes to your clinic by delivering highest quality chairside support and patient care services. I have some brilliant ideas to market, project and promote your clinic’s mission and attract a higher number of clients.
During my experience working with multicultural patients, my dental assistance skills have polished a lot. Being a certificate holder in radiology as well, I would be able to conduct X-rays independently. To be specific, I am well versed in greeting clients, scheduling appointments and sterilizing equipment for the dentist. Moreover, I have a track record of explaining the treatment plan to patients, taking the dental image and maintaining confidential information.
My resume is enclosed for your review. I will call you after two weeks to set up an interview date with you to discuss my ideas and interest. Thank you for your time and consideration.
