Re: DENTIST Position
I am hi-energy and will be an asset to your team. I am a team player.
I am available for either part-time or full-time position and relocation is not a concern.
I possess exceptional chair-side manner making your patients relaxed thru knowledge, a gentle touch and confidence in accepting treatment recommendations.
I am extremely proficient in root canals, oral surgery, Lasers, CAD/CAM crowns, and implant reconstruction. I also have advanced training in Diagnosis and Pain Management. I enjoy Dentistry. I am continually taking courses to keep ahead of the current status.
Responsibility, dedication, integrity and knowledge are my 40 plus years of Dental experience is what I have to offer to you. During these 40 years I had a private practice; I have done Corporate Dentistry and many years of LOCUM TENENS
Locum Tenens positions have allowed me to gain the knowledge of multiple management and clinical systems leading to a very effective commitment in a Quality, Productivity, and Structured Practice thru time management.
Locum Tenens have provided me an expertise of specialized skills thru advanced equipment use, assorted materials and procedures that will provide the best treatment available for your patients.
I make individuals at ease with my friendly personality and interpersonal abilities. My advanced training in Dynamic Motivation and Sales motivates patients to good oral health choices
I have enclosed my Resume for your review
I am certain that joining your team would be mutually beneficial.
I am seeking a stable, permanent position to build a strong long-standing professional relationship with each patient. The one thing that was lacking in LOCUM TENENS
Thank you for your time and consideration
