Dear Mr. Stewart,

As a certified dental assistant (CDA) with three years of experience, I was excited to find the open dental assistant position on [URL] at [Dentistry Clinic] in Miami, Florida. I had the pleasure of speaking with [Name Surname] and he suggested that I contact you about the job opening. In this cover letter, I will elaborate on how my operational and administrative experience can add value to your team of dental hygienists and dentists.

To shortly introduce myself, my name is [Kate Murphy] and I heard about your clinic during the International Conference on Dentistry in Miami. According to dental specialists at your clinic, the working environment is considered dynamic, fast-paced and exciting. They feel being surrounded by a team of fellow-hardworking individuals. I would love to work in such an environment that is both personally and professionally fulfilling. Currently, I am seeking to obtain a growth oriented position in a new and challenging work environment.

In the job description, you describe the ideal candidate as someone who requires very little training and supervision. After assisting 950 dental treatments and conducting nearly 460 panoramic, bitewing and periapical x-rays, I am convinced that my profile matches. During my employment at [Dental Clinic], I also organized patient’s medical records, assisted in billing insurance and tracked weekly income and expenses. I even managed to achieve an 8% reduction in expenses by contacting new suppliers.

I am eager to further discuss my candidacy and possible contribution to [Dentistry Clinic]. Thank you for taking the time to review my cover letter and attached resume. If you have any questions concerning my application, you can reach me at [(000) 000-0000] or [Email Address]. I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards, 

Kate Murphy
