Dental Assistant Resignation Letter Sample

Updated on: March 8, 2019

Just like resumes and cover letters, a resignation letter is also an important part of the job world.

You wouldn’t expect to spend your entire professional life in one organization unless the growth is great and you have nothing to complain about.

But for most of us, ideal situations such as this do not exist and writing a resignation letter becomes a necessity.

Let’s get into details of how a dental assistant resignation letter is written. It needs to be addressed to the human resource manager or your supervisor, depending on the specific procedures of your organization.

Explaining why you want to leave and which date will be your last working day is essential. Offering to help in hiring and training someone to replace you will go in your favor too.

Resignation letters should be direct and to the point. If you do not want to provide too much detail of why you are leaving, provide a solid overview of your reasons.

But you cannot say that you are leaving without offering an explanation.

The following resignation letter sample will help you decide how you can word your own:

Mr. Peter Olsen
Human Resource Manager
The Dental Facility
96 N 1st Street
Custer, SD 55714


Dear Mr. Olsen:

Please accept this letter as my formal resignation from my position as Dental Assistant for The Dental Facility, effective March 22. As policy dictates, I am providing you with a 2 weeks’ notice of my intention to leave.

As I have already mentioned to you, I will be moving to New York at the end of next month which leaves me with no choice but to give up my position here. I understand that I have 3 major commitments with patients who are going through complicated dental procedures, and I intend to close these before I leave, even if it means working a few days extra. I believe that Ms. Rachel Wood who is presently working as a dental intern at our facility will be able to pick up from where I leave, and with your permission, I can train her to replace me during this one month.

I would like to thank you for your unwavering faith in me and the support that you provided to me – I can never be grateful enough for the opportunity that you have given to me to work at one of the finest dental facilities in the state.

Please let me know if there is anything that I can do to make this transition easy, with minimum impact on the facility.


Sincere regards,

Richard Hill
