Mr. William Langden
Human Resource Manager

Scottsburg, IN 25881
Dear Mr. Langden:
Impressed by the contributions that ABC Dental has made to the community in terms of patient education and delivery of exceptional dental services, I would like to offer my resume (enclosed) to be considered for the Dentist Intern position at your facility. As a recent graduate dentist, with all required licensures to work in the state of Indiana, I am sure that my credentials will be of high interest to you.
Having recently completed the required 12-month internship/training session with Dental Aesthetics, I am now well-versed in handling a variety of standard and complex dental procedures, including scaling and cleaning, fixing dentures and bridges, and performing root canals. Often referred to as a “painless dentist” by my fellow interns who were quite impressed with the way I handled assigned dental procedures, I am sure that your facility would not mind bringing on board one more professional in the field.
You have mentioned “the ability to provide education to patients regarding dental/oral care” as one of the prerequisites to being considered for the position. To satisfy this point, I would like to meet with you in person to provide you with deep insight into the patient education directives I have taken up in the past, and how I have been successful in teaching an entire school the merits of good oral hygiene. I will call your office to arrange a meeting time soon and can be contacted at (666) 666-6666 if you would like any further information or documentation to affirm my claims of job suitability.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
