Dear Dr. Brent,
I am interested in the dental assistant position that was listed in Sunday's Contra Costa Times. Attached is my resume for your consideration.
I have worked as a registered dental assistant, RDA, for the last 3 years. I've created a well executed routine where, in partnership with the dentist, any normal or surgical procedures (crowns, fillings, cosmetics, etc.) run smoothly. I am skilled at taking and processing x-rays. I make sure all dental appliances are always sterile and ready-to-use for the dentist, helping him work more efficiently and effectively.
I am proficient in Dentrix for making appointments, keeping treatment records and ordering supplies efficiently. I help in other ways as well. A business course I took recently, Accounting 1, has allowed me to backup the office's Accounts Payable and Accounts Receivable functions.
I work very well with all kinds of people. Prior to my RDA certification, I worked as a pre- school teacher for 2 years. I received a parental recognition award or being one of the "nicest teachers". I have a friendly disposition that makes the client comfortable, especially during surgical dental procedures.
I hope that with my varied abilities and skills, I can be of help in every aspect of your practice, but first and foremost as an effective dental assistant. I look forward to having the opportunity to discuss my background with you in more detail.
