Madam, Sir,

Following an advertisement on the Carrière Dentaire website, I would like to send you my application for the position of dental assistant.

During my training to obtain my diploma of professional studies in dental assistance, I held several internships in dental clinics. During these internships, I assisted the dental surgeon by performing various administrative tasks.

My duties included maintaining medical records and managing order inventory. I also made contact with patients to schedule appointments and remind them of their next appointment.

At the dental clinic, I prepared, cleaned and sterilized the equipment used by the dental hygienists and the dental surgeon. I also made dentures for the patients. I also performed some x-rays.

I believe I have the skills and qualities required for this job. I am at your disposal to provide you with additional information, if you wish.

Thank you for your consideration of my application and I remain available for an interview.

Please accept, Madam, Sir, my best regards.
