Writing a Dental Office Manager Resignation Letter (with Sample)

A career as an office manager can be a rewarding choice for some people. However, many people consider a job as an office manager to be a starting point on a path towards a full career in life. 

Because of this, many people will stay in an office managerial position in five years or less. 


However, it’s important to make sure that one leaves a good impression when leaving any job position. 

The following article provides effective tips and tricks on how to write an office manager resignation notice.

Give At Least Two Week Of Notice

When writing a resignation letter, it’s important to make sure that one provides at least two week of notice. 

For some high-level positions, it may be necessary to provide at least four weeks notice. However, this can vary based on one’s job duties.

If an individual does lots of work that is very specialized, it’s a good idea to give as much notice as possible. If the work that one does is not specialized, it’s acceptable to give only two weeks notice. 

When writing a resignation letter, it’s important to avoid burning bridges. While an office job can create lots of poor relationships over time, a resignation letter is not the time to bring these up.

Avoid Negative Comments

Any negative comments that reflect on other people in an office may have a later negative effect on a job seeker. 

To avoid these issues, it’s a good idea to remain neutral or positive in any notice of resignation. This can be an effective way to avoid hurt feelings and damaged relationships.

The following sample resignation notice is designed for a dental office manager who is about to quit his or her position.

Dear Dr. Cody, 

I regret to inform you that I must resign from my position as an office manager at Cody Dental Clinic effective January 30th, 2020. 

While I have valued the time I have spent as an employee of Cody Dental Clinic, I have been offered another position with a higher salary. In the current economy, I cannot in good conscience turn down such an opportunity. 

I greatly appreciate your professionalism and the knowledge I’ve gained while working with you in the past, and I hope someday we might be able to work together again.
